Festive London weekend

Yesterday was my husband Darren's birthday, and to celebrate we planned a weekend in the capital enjoying all that London in December has to offer!

We stayed with friends in nearby Great Missenden, and on Saturday after the short train journey to Marylebone we took in the amazing displays of Christmas lights on Oxford Street before reaching our first port of call - ICEBAR London.

As someone who feels the cold easily I wasn't sure what to expect, but the specially designed thermal cape which fit over my chair, coupled with the wickedly strong cocktails served in Ice glasses kept me nice and toasty!


Afterwards we had a wander (first of all very slowly in a huge queue) around Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, which was extremely busy so difficult to navigate in a wheelchair, but had a lovely festive atmosphere and delicious smells of mulled wine, roasting chestnuts and German sausage.

Ravenous after being tempted with so much food, we finished off our day with dinner in the Hard Rock Cafe, where we had the usual amazing service, huge platefuls and more cocktails... Well, it would have been rude not to. I was especially glad that we'd called ahead and put our names down on their priority list for diners with access requirements, as there was a 3 hour wait for tables.

A lovely London weekend of celebration and festive cheer.
