London flight prices
Not quite feeling a white Christmas, but still want to indulge in the festive atmosphere? Head to London this November and see the magical lights twinkling in Oxford and be inspired by the legendary shop-fronts. Pick up a few special gifts in Covent Garden and don't miss the exceptional display in Carnaby Street. Despite the lack of snow, you'll still want to make sure to pack the mittens! Just skip the chunky knits, you want to leave enough room to bring all your shopping home!
