    Survivor Guide: Westminster during the festive season


    The city of Westminster is, without a doubt, one of the most spectacular sights on earth during the festive season. Whether it’s witnessing the joy and euphoria of the Christmas tree being switched on in Trafalgar Square or enjoying a sublime choir performance at a service in Westminster Abbey, there is no shortage of traditional activities to do in the city of Westminster during the festive season.

    Preparing for the weather

    Many of the events in Westminster during the festive season take place outside and in this respect, it’s important to dress correctly for the weather. Although the British weather can be unpredictable at the best of times, we do enjoy fairly mild winters in comparison with many other countries. However, the cold is not to be underestimated and can result in frostbite and other injuries. Ensure you wear a warm jacket with gloves and a hat to prevent frostbite. Ensure that you drink plenty of fluids. Why not avail of one of the hot beverages on offer at the many craft markets that take place during the festive season in Westminster?

    Be vigilant

    Remember, large outdoor events are the ideal place for pickpockets to operate. You can reduce the chances of being a victim of pickpocketing by keeping your valuables in the inside pocket of your jacket. Be vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the police.

    Decide on a meeting point

    In modern times, mobile phones have become more than just a convenience, they can be a lifesaver in an emergency. However, due to short battery life and loss of signal, mobile phones cannot always be relied upon in an emergency. Agree upon a meeting point in case you get separated from your family and friends among the crowds.

    Having an accident during the festive season can do more than just spoil the festive cheer. An accident can leave you facing financial ramifications at a time of the year when finances are already stretched.
