After a term of tedious study, winter vacation has finally started! So, have you planned where to go? Why not take a look here? Here are some top spots to have fun in this winter.
Christmas Markets are definitely great places to have fun. You will have the chance to see different things and people, as well as to taste delicious food! There are many Christmas markets in U.K and some unique markets from other parts of Europe, such as in Scandinavia. The most important thing is that it is totally affordable! Most of the markets don’t require you to pay an entry fee so you can just walk in and have fun. It’s also an ideal place to pick up some Christmas gifts for your family and friends.
Like Christmas markets, ice rinks are also really popular places to visit as they usually tend to only open during the Winter months. You can find many ice rinks in London. But if you are far away from London, don’t worry. There are also ice rinks in other cities, such as Birmingham, Brighton, Oxford, York, etc.
Skiing is undoubtedly an ideal sport playing in the winter. You don’t have to go to Switzerland to enjoy skiing. How about Scotland? Scotland can give you a fantastic skiing journey as well. There are several ski resorts for you to choose so if you’re stuck for choice why not have a google and see which one you like the best!
