Christmas Activities in London: Biscuit Making!

Who says your list of Christmas Activities in London has to be limited to ice skating in Somerset House (been there) and Winter Wonderland (done that)?

Richmond Park’s Best Autumn Activities

Despite having lived in London for 12 years (i.e. eternity), I never actually took the time to visit Richmond Park. Have you ever noticed that the places closest to you are the ones you end up not visiting?
