We stayed at the Shakespeare and Dolphins hotel near Hyde Park. The building was absolutely gorgeous but the interieur was a bit dated. But I kind of expected that from a hotel in London, so that was okay. We didn't end up spending much time at the hotel anyway. Hyde Park was absolutely fantastic around this time of year. A Winter Wonderland was organized there and it was great for getting into the Christmas spirit. We had all the hot chocolate we could ever need right at arms length. We also ended up enjoying a traditional English afternoon tea at the park.
And then it was time to fly back home again! Due to the stormy weather the flight home was a bit unpleasant. But we all made it home safely, and that's the most important thing. We had a lovely time in London and I hope we'll be able to visit again someday.I purchased some lovely items on this trip, but I'll show you in a seperate haul post soon. So if you could choose any place in the world, where would you like to go Christmas shopping?
