November is finally here, and it’s already beginning to feel a lot like Christmas in London town. From the igloos that have appeared on the Thames to the twinkly lights that have been put up on shopping streets across the city, there are lots of things to keep you occupied. We at Broke in London have put together a list of the things we are looking forward to this weekend and we hope you get excited about them too!
