London Weekend destinations
Islington Christmas Extravaganza this coming weekend with reindeer, craft and food market, music and a climbing wall in case you want to get up there and see for yourself
And if you are in the area and need to warm up, try Kipferl, a lovely Viennese coffee house on Camden Passage
or re-create it at home with this tempting looking recipe - Chocolate Cinnamon Teacakes
Go West and enjoy some Christmas revels - 17th century music at Ham House (4.,11.,18.12),
or don't go that far back in time and visit Cadogan Hall on the 13.12 to hear Max Raabe and the Palast Orchester with some glorious 20's and 30's music and entertainment to get you into the mood.
