Here's Kim's letter to Father Christmas…
My list is short and sweet:
Christmas Eve - lots of money in my bucket at the Royal Albert Hall carol concert as I collect for our local hospital
Christmas Day - the family all together and happy
Boxing Day - 3 points for Manchester United
And if I'm being greedy then I'm going for a bit of snow -not enough to make the whole country grind to a halt but just to look pretty.
The only one of the above dates that is a holiday for me is Christmas Day because, as we all know, the show that is London Walks must go on so I'll be back on Boxing Day.
I know there will be those out there who are keen to
a) avoid the post Christmas sales
b) walk off the festive overload of turkey, pudding and pies
and c) get the brain into gear before they head to the pub!
So, a London Walk has got to be the perfect answer. Two hours of entertainment, fascinating stories, fresh air and delightful company.
I'll be tramping the streets three times over the Christmas week and there's one for every interest:
Old Westminster - perfect for those who want the "big ticket sights" of Parliament, the River Thames and the Abbey BUT with the addition of backstreets and byways rarely trod. 26 December 11am Westminster station exit 4.
Christmas in the Trenches - ideal for the history fans and those who want to continue WW1 Centenary commemorations. See where the decisions were taken and meet the main protagonists in this conflict. 28 December 2.30pm St James station Broadway exit.
Secret Village - the one for those who want a bit less obvious and some gory details. Clerkenwell is the destination but plague, executions and burials do get in the way. 29 December 2.30pm St Paul's station.
Do join me on one of the above. It will be wonderful to see faces both old and new.
Happy Christmas everyone
The Daily Constitutional editor Adam replies on behalf of Santa…
Well done Kim, I'm sure Santa can organise all of that.
However, if you had asked for three points for Manchester United on the 28th December, then the cupboard is bare, I'm afraid. United are taking on Tottenham Hotspur here in London at White Hart Lane that day. And it will be 2-0 Spurs. Easy. Glory Glory Tottenham Hotspur!
A London Walk costs £9 – £7 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
