跟《English with Lucy》的英國人Lucy一起享受聖誕節中的倫敦，和她看看當地的小吃、景點，聽聽Lucy最愛在聖誕節時做什麼事，也順便練練自己的聽力吧！
London is an amazing place all year around, but the Christmas is just unbelievably beautiful. The lights, the displays, the atmosphere, it really is breathtaking. It’s this crazy, busy city for 11 months of the year, but when December comes along you can see all of the busy Londoners making time to take a step back from their routines and just appreciating what the city has to offer.
One of the things I really enjoying doing in Christmas is buying amazing gifts for my loved one. One thing I love doing is window shopping. I ‘ll spend an afternoon looking at all the window display without really buying anything, just trying to gather ideas and inspiration. London is so great for shopping. The most famous street is Oxford street, but I really like King’s Road as well. The luxury brands really compete each other. Some of them are pretty impressive. Another lovely place to visit in London in Christmas time is called Covent Garden, the center of which used to be a fruit and vegetable market, and then in the 1980s it changed to a shopping center. There are lots of lovely little shops and you can also see some street performers if you go at the right time.
I enjoy heading down south of the river and appreciating the views of The River Thame’s from one of London’s many bridges. It really does make me feel very very small in such a big city. One of my favorite lunch spots is one of the largest and oldest food markets in the whole of London, Borough Market. In 2014 it celebrated its thousand birthday. If you do head over Borough Market don’t forget to try some of the hot cider, perfect warm you up on a cold day.
So that was a little taste of my beautiful city at Christmas time, and I’ve love to hear your recommendations.
