Mr Bell’s Christmas In London: A Photographic Collection

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year…”
So that classic Christmas song tells us and here in London it certainly seems to be just that.

Streets beautifully lit with their festive lights, shop windows filled with gorgeous Christmas themed displays, Christmas markets and what seems like an ice rink on every corner!

London is a great place at any time of the year but I particularly like just wandering around at Christmas taking photo’s and soaking up the festive atmosphere. Here’s a few (well quite a few) snaps of the capital at Christmas.

Covent Garden is a favourite of mine with its great boutique shopping and beautiful decorations.

The shop windows around town always impress me with their Christmas displays.

The Christmas lights around central London are always a popular attraction at this time of year.

I live in London and work for a large international airline but apart from being my job travel is my passion. I've been very lucky and have travelled all over the world. In this my 20th year working for the airline I decided to start photographing and writing about the places I visit including my home town London. I hope you enjoy my adventures around the world.
