Just like doing the same things can be monotonous, living in the same weather can be boring too. The primary four seasons- winter, spring, summer and autumn can vary in characteristics as well as acceptance by people. If you ask me, I love winter season for the warmth it holds and for the strong coffee it makes me relish this season. The cherry on the cake are the foreign trips that become even more exotic near Christmas and New Year. I have always been an intriguing traveller. I love exploring new places and enjoying the beauty of the local cultures and that’s the reason I prefer booking accommodations that are close to the busy areas of the cities I visit. Such accommodations give me ample opportunities to observe the people and explore the surroundings. But to make these dreams of travelling and learning the world come true what matters the most is the budget – to be specific the travelling budget. For those who are planning a trip to UK there has never been a best time to visit London.
The travelling budget comprises the cost of tickets and the cost of living (accommodation, sight-seeing, food & shopping). My recent experience with a foreign trip shows that however it is easy to manage the cost of living; the cost of tickets can vary significantly. Believe me, the ticket cost can make a huge impact on your overall trip’s budget. If you can get them at a low price go for that deal as that allows you to spend more money on shopping and sight-seeing. Fortunately, for London lovers British Airways have been running an all-time low fare scheme. For the month of December, you can celebrate Christmas and New Year at the most happening places of London just by spending few bucks on air tickets. What more, by booking the tickets through BA you can also enjoy exclusive retail and shopping offers laid out specifically for British Airways customers and get more for your money in London.
This time around, there will be many exciting things to do in London in the month of December. For example, from 15-21 December, for the first time in 50 years London hosts an exhibition of abstract expressionism at the prestigious Royal Academy. From 22-28 December, go caroling at London’s most magical church- Westminster Abbey, which is waiving its hefty admissions charge for the popular free carol services on the 23 and 24 December. 29-31 December will be the time to get ready to welcome New Year in style with the popular annual Vintage New Year’s Eve Party on the south bank of the Thames at Royal Festival Hall.
The best part of planning for this trip is that the pound rate has come down to Rs 82 as compared to Rs 100 earlier this year. Thus, you will get more value for your money, and spend the same on making the trip happening and covering more places. Do give it a thought as it is indeed a best deal you will ever come across to visit London!
