London Is Calling!


Winter, a season of mirth and feasting, with impressive delicacies surfeited, and Christmas is the time we all wait for, for its pleasant beauties and vibrant shopping. It is time of the year, we recover from all trials and enjoy the successes, large and small along the way, plan trips and adventures and let ourselves soak in buoyant optimism of what the new year may hold. So, why not add another jewel to the revels, blink a wishful eye and let the charm that the City of London resplendent in its Christmas attire has in store for us.

On my first trip abroad as a student, I had chosen to fly with the British Airways and I am glad I did! Their service was impeccable and it soon put me in high spirits and made me forget that I was going to be away from home for a considerable amount of time!

Many of us have read wonderful classics growing up that were based in London and some of us have dreamt of visiting it and maybe, perhaps walk down the same streets as our favourite fictional characters once did! British Airways is that special friend or the secret Santa, if you wish, who knows your dreams and will fly you there so that you can visit The British Library that houses a splendid archival collection of the First copies of The Canterbury Tales, Beowulf, Jane Eyre to the street where Charles Dickens frequented The George Inn.  From Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre to The Sherlock Holmes Museum at 221b Baker Street, you can let your imagination soar this festive season and enjoy the lower than before currency exchange rates at that’s going to be soft on your pockets at £1 British Pound being 82 Indian Rupees.

London welcomes you to its popular tourist destinations and vibrant shopping scene with old-world streets and calm island weather, lets you shop whist you walk in a modern city that is also a relic of a proud heritage for all the art and clothing that’s both designer and street-styled. Christmas by the River, St. Parcas, Winter Wonderland and many other Christmas markets sprout in London through most of the December until the New Year. London is one of the most cosmopolitan cultures with people from all over the world, this enrichment is flavoured with them all celebrating the largest festival on this planet. You can flood your life with experiences from this popular city, its high streets and beautiful people. Londoner’s are in fact a glamorous population. You never feel alone being in London because you are just another of your kind in this mega city.

The Christmas – New Year period in London is the prime of the tourist season and this city of fables and stories awaits us. British Airways offers many Christmas discounts to its long list of venerable customers for this season. Your money is better spent in a lifelong cherishment than a memory. London expects you and British Airways awaits you.
