15 Wonderful Reasons To Stop Avoiding London Tourist Spots This Christmas

The decision to head to Oxford Street on any occasion, let alone in the lead up to Christmas, is a brave one. The same goes for all the – *quick shudder* – touristy places during the festive period. It’s safe to say London’s famous glittery spots will see their fair share of (painfully slow walking) foot-fall and we don’t blame anyone tempted to sack it all off for multiple nights under the duvet. But we are urging you to get out and head to the jam-packed spots. Yes, it will be mobbed and there’s no doubt you’ll tut your way out of Covent Garden tube station, but as soon as you stand below the sparkling tree, share a kiss under the mistletoe or actually see Regent Street’s angels somewhere other than your Instagram feed, we guarantee you’ll get all of the tingly Christmas feels.
