A few ways to celebrate Christmas as an International Student in the UK

For any international student staying the UK during the Christmas period, it can be a wonderful experience! Spending Christmas here can create some unforgettable memories that will last you a lifetime.

So, here are a few fun ideas for celebrating your Christmas break in our fair country:

Take a City Break

If you fancy experiencing the sights and sounds of a British city at Christmas, there could be no better place to visit than the capital city of London! The city really pulls out all of the stops during the festive season with Christmas lights and decorations brightening up the streets, wonderful seasonal food and drink offerings from the many restaurants, food outlets and street vendors across the city, as well as the many Christmas markets that spring up at this time of year.

If you are in the city, head to the Winter Wonderland! Hyde Park Winter Wonderland is a spectacular Christmas destination that cannot be missed. Open from 22nd November 2018 until 6th January 2019,  you can see Peter Pan on Ice, Teletubbies Christmas Show, Ice Sculpting Workshops, ice rink, and daredevil acrobatic acts in the Circus MegaDome.

Fancy a game of Crazy-Golf while in London? Visit plonkgolf.co.uk to discover an amazing choice of very cleverly designed mini-golf courses set up in some quite remarkable venues across London. Of particular interest are the Plonk! Golf courses at Peckham, Islington and Winterville.

Plonk! Peckham is an amazingly creative mini-golf course set within the very vibrant area of London called the Peckham Levels. Themed as a tropical island paradise, if you fancy playing a round of golf while having a bit of fun in the sun, then this tricky course is the venue for you. Set in an uber trendy area with over 80 creative businesses, 9 food vendors and 3 cafe bars to enjoy.

On a cold and wet winter’s day, head to Plonk! Islington. The seven-hole arcade sized course is set within The Arcade on the first floor of the Victoria Tavern on Holloway Road. You will have everything you need to hand with some fun crazy-golf, arcade games and an in-house pizza kitchen with two well-stocked bars.

Enjoy all the fun of the fair with a day out in Winterville! A completely different festive experience!

Dive in for fully immersive fun with roaming magicians, live DJ’s, outdoor ice rink, Mexican wrestling and special Christmas shows. Enjoy plenty of seasonal food and drink treats from Street Feast, and finish off your day with a game of crazy golf on the UV-powered course.
