christmas london

ellusnoffy  asked:

You live in England right? I might visit London next Christmas so do you have some places you would recommend going? Or some kind of tips how to act there? Thanks have a lovely day!

I do yes!

London is such a wonderful place but it’s VERY busy and you’ll probably encounter being stuck behind slow walking people or you might bump into a lot of people so brace yourself for that!

Some places I’d definitely advise going are:

Camden Market
Especially around christmas time! It’s always cute and christmassy and plus it’s one of the most well known places in London ^^

Regent Park
There’s a lot of parks in London but this one is my favourite, it’s huge and nice.

Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium
IT’S A CAT CAFÉ so if you like cats and cake then you will love this place! If you want to go here, I recommend making a booking before hand so you’re certain to get a seat because it fills up quickly.

Buckingham Palace
Go see the Queens house! You can stand outside and admire how beautiful the palace is and get mildly jealous.

Speedy’s Café
Okay this is ONLY necessary if you’re a fan of Sherlock the TV show. This café is a filming spot for the show and in the show, Sherlock lives above it. If you’re not interested in Sherlock then you can give this one a miss if you like ^^ The portions of food are fantastic though, just saying.

Big Ben
Of course, go see London’s famous gigantic clock!

Natural History Museum
SUPER INTERESTING AND MUSEUMS ARE GREAT

National Portrait Gallery
Awesome place if you like art!

Oxford Street
SHOPPING

————— 

In London, it’ll be very busy and there’s gonna be business people rushing around so I’d say it’s important to try to avoid them as much as possible as you don’t want people to get frustrated with you! If you use the London Underground, make sure you have your ticket ready BEFORE you get to the barriers because you don’t want to cause a pile-up behind you. It’s a very fast-paced environment.

Also people in England like to say ‘thank you’ a lot so, if someone lets you past them, or holds the door open for you, let’s you go in front of them in a queue, basically in any situation when someone does something for you, say thank you! 

Be respectful in queues. No queue jumping whatsoever unless someone says you can go in front of them (maybe because they’re not ready to order, or they can’t find their money etc)

If you’re in the centre and need to stop for something (sort your bag out or whatever), step to the side so you’re not in the way of people walking past.

If you’re on the london underground, or on a bus or train, and you’re sat in the priority seat (usually the seat closest to the door), make sure you give it up for an elderly person, pregnant lady or a child if they come on board.

If you need help for directions or if you don’t understand the underground system or something, definitely ask someone! The best people to ask would be the staff at the train station or underground station. They have an incredible knowledge for London and where you need to go, which lines to get, how long it’ll take, where it’ll stop you etc, and they’ll always be willing to help you out. I’ve had no bad experiences (as of yet) with these people!

I’d say that’s pretty much it, read up online if you’re curious about other ways on how to fit in with the locals there. But generally you’re okay as long as if you’re well mannered!

Summary: 1964, The Beatles are set to perform their third night of their Christmas show in London. But when a deadly new rabies virus starts to spread around to different countries, the four realize they’re in more trouble than they thought.

The door closed right before their eyes. George and Ringo just watched as their best friends left and put themselves at risk for their sake. George scrambled to the window to watch the three walk out to the parked cab. He noticed how Paul had a very slight limp every couple steps. Ringo followed and knocked on the window. They turned, smiled, and gave a wave. Ringo and George waved back, trying to seem as calm as they could manage. George couldn’t help, but feel guilty about not going. He felt selfish and lazy; he felt like Constable Smith.

Constable Smith. The man had barely interacted with them, but what he and Ringo just walked into was certainly not some play session. George would have to be completely oblivious to think nothing was wrong with what they interrupted. Paul looked scared and hurt, Brian was on edge, and John seemed snappy and almost enraged. George even thought he saw a glimpse of the constable’s gun. He knew that Paul had been lying, he knew there was something wrong, but he also knew that there was a reason Paul was lying. A reason which could not be said out loud. Yes, Smith said only a word or two to Ringo and George, but that was enough to leave a bad taste.
