The Run Up To Christmas – A Festive Glance At What’s To Come

Christmas Is Coming And There’s Lots Going On In London!

We thought we would give you a little insight into what’s going on in London and in cities around the UK over the Christmas period! Keep a close eye out on the blog as we’ll be talking about all manner of topics that will help you make the most of the festive season and make your time in London or the UK generally that little bit more special!

Christmas cheer and festive fun, and it’s only just begun!

The famous Oxford Street lights have been switched on, Father Christmas has taken his seat in the Harrods Christmas grotto and Arctic-cold ice rinks have appeared across the country. Even the most level headed Brit goes positively gaga as soon as gingerbread houses and holly garlands appear in shop windows – it seems that festive fever won’t ever be cured. And why should it? Winter in the UK is long enough; we need an excuse to celebrate before the long dreary January days are here. So we’re going to help you embrace the season of goodwill this year and provide details on some of the best attractions and events London and England has to offer!

Many of the Christmas lights switch on events have already happened, but there’s plenty to be seen in the places that have them as well as those that don’t!

Here’s what you can expect to read about in the run up to Christmas:

Best Places to see Christmas Trees and Decorations

  • Where to go to see some truly impressive Christmas trees and decorations. From the huge Norwegian tree in Trafalgar Square to the magical Enchanted Woodland at Syon Park, these visual masterpieces won’t be easy to miss.
