so now that Lapland in the New Forest is not longer, and not being able to afford to go to the real Lapland I'm attempting to arrange a new day out for us all!
I was thinking we could get a train to London, have a flight on the London Eye followed by a 40 minute river cruise (with 'free' hot chocolate!) and then wander along the Southbank where there should be a Cologne style Christmas Market! It sounds like a wonderful day (depending on weather of course!)
The London Eye and river cruise no problem, but i was just wondering if anyone has ever been to this market before - there's one at Hyde Park too which could be fun. I'm sure it's fine but I'm just curious.
There are museums of course but i thought the markets could be fun and although we'd be fine jumping on and off the tube trains to visit various places I'm not sure how the inlaws would cope with it, so if everything was fairly nearby it would be better for them!
Any other day out ideas would be most welcomed!
