Christmas in London


So you are in London for Christmas.

Let's see what you can do : 

Visit the Christmas Wonderland, Lakeside ice skating rink held undercover in a giant igloo, before refueling with a mulled wine or a Yorkshire pudding wrap from the Christmas Market.

 Get out of the cold and into these warm Christmas Dining Bubbles at Ashridge House with a roast and a glass of mulled when at a table in your own private bubble. 

Watch the English National Ballet perform in the Christmas classic, The Nutcracker.

 Track down Santa inside the London Transport Museum, follow the festive winter trail to hunt for roundels hidden amongst the historic vehicles, or visit the winter forest and watch a video story. 

 Tick off your Christmas shopping and get in the festive spirit at Westfield London, Shepherd’s Bush, where you can sip cocktails in a heated igloo or belt out your favorite Christmas songs in a private Karaoke Chalet.

 Listen to your favorite carols online or in person at one of London's best-known landmarks, the Royal Albert Hall, featuring the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Royal Choral Society, and the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain.

Marvel at the iconic Christmas lights on Oxford Street as you grab some gifts for family and friends.

Get a taste of royal life with a tour of Windsor Castle, complete with a glimpse of the magnificent 20-foot-high Norway spruce tree in St George's Hall.

Order from Zizzi's 'Merry Moments' menu which includes new dishes such as cheese and truffle honey pasta parcels, truffle salami rustica pizza, smoked salmon and dill tortellini, and chocolate hazelnut brownie bomb. It costs £24.95 for a three-course meal and a drink. 

 Get in the festive spirit with a trip to the Dominion Theatre to see the musical Irving Berlin's White Christmas, based on the 1954 film starring Bing Crosby.

 Animal-lovers should head to ZSL London Zoo where you can send off your trail card to Santa and help to make sure all the animals get the perfect present this Christmas!

Join the MS Society’s Carols by Candlelight event online, which features Christmas carols and readings from Emilia Fox, Robert Powell, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, and Rose Leslie.

 Sip on a Champagne cocktail and check out the 14,000 decorations hanging from the walls and ceiling of 34 Mayfair.

Get the whole family in the festive spirit with the Victoria and Albert Museum's online magical backpacks workshop, led by costume and set designer Ryan Dawson Laight (recommended for 5-7-year-olds.)

 Snuggle up at The Botanist’s outdoor bar and enjoy hot food surrounded by snow-capped fir trees, wood cabins, and twinkling fairy lights.

Take some pictures of the twinkling lights illuminating the Royal Botanical Gardens in Kew, from the Rose Garden to a glittering tunnel of bells.

 Feast your eyes on Hogwarts' winter makeover at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London  The Making of Harry Potter, featuring a tree-lined Great Hall and a magical Yule Ball.

 Show your support for all the furry friends of Battersea Dogs and Cats Home at the online Christmas carol concert.

Try a winter warming cocktail at The Ivy Chelsea Garden – mulled wine, anyone?

 Come face to face with imaginative LEGO installations, entitled 'A Really Cool World', at Covent Garden. The immersive installation is inspired by the LEGO Group’s 2020 Holiday Advert and it's free.

 Step into Chelsea at Christmas, a winter wonderland where you can see a 36-foot Norway Spruce tree, enjoy a festive food market and see live entertainment and music.

Say goodbye to 2020 in style, with a New Year’s Eve brunch at the Madison. Relax on their Manhattan-style rooftop, taking in supreme views of the city as you listen to live music play - what better way to start 2021.

 Treat yourself to the membership at luxury hotel Bingham Riverhouse in Richmond to enjoy as soon as the lockdown ends. Benefits include access to a members-only drawing-room, decked out with festive decorations to get you in the Christmas spirit. There is also a designated workspace room, where during the lockdown, members can still have access by bringing their own food and drink, all while looking at the stunning views of the river Thames. Access to nearby Bhuti Day Spa & Wellness Centre is also included, as well as generous members' rates on holistic treatments. 

 Sip on a festive cocktail as you huddle up with friends in a rooftop igloo overlooking the city at Aviary bar.
