A few weeks ago I went on a Christmas shopping walking tour of London run by Best LDN Walks* in association with Currys*. We started at Green Park went to lots of independent shops on the search for different Christmas gifts which are a little bit more special than the high street. We also all wore different fitness trackers to see how many steps we did, to show that you can burn those all important Christmas calories even while shopping. It did feel like most of the shops were quite near each other and we ended at Piccadilly which is the next Tube stop along.

Then we went off to the oldest cigar merchants in London, James J Fox, which supplied Winston Churchill with his favourite smoke, which you can still buy. This would make a brilliant present for a smoker.

We then had a quick stop at Lock and Co which is a very old Hat shop, selling every kind of hat you can think of and are amazing quality. I did drool over the fur a little bit.
Paxton and Whitfield is a cheese shop in London, I did walk in but I actually just walked straight back out again. As much as I love cheese, it really did smell quite strong in there.
This tour is a great idea if your taking a trip to London and it only costs £8 which is brilliant value. I actually walked a huge 7200 steps on the tour along which I was so surprised at. I am loving my Fitness Tracker and I have worn it everyday since. It even has a smart alarm which can wake you up at the perfect moment when sleeping... How awesome is that! For more info on the smart tech please check out the Curry's official blog post here.
