Christmas in London
Another thing to do that’s free is a Christmas lights walk. You can start at Trafalgar Square and make your way through Piccadilly Circus, Regent Street, Caranaby Street and Oxford Street. Other places with beautiful Christmas lights is Covent Garden and Sloane Square, so be sure to check when all the lights are being switched on and set off on a lovely journey around the big city.
If the thought of all that tires you out, why not grab a seat at a local theatre and take in some cultural performances? The English National Ballet are back for another year of their production of The Nutcracker. Prices start from £10 and it takes place at the London Coliseum, but there aren’t many dates so get in early!
London also welcomes loads of pantomimes and shows in winter that are great for both adults and kids alike. Cinderella, Aladdin, Jack and the Beanstalk are all some top choices for this year.
There is something so special about spending an evening walking around a Christmas market and London is home to loads over November and December. Some last one or two months, but others only visit the city for five days, so get out there and enjoy the mulled wine and roasted chestnuts!
