Christmas in London


Christmas in London

December is the perfect time to visit London as this is when the city comes alive with the magic of Christmas. We have deliberately kept the second evening of the programme free so that you can explore London and enjoy the festive atmosphere. Whether you want to do some shopping, visit a museum or theatre, or sing carols in Trafalgar Square, there will be a something seasonal for you. Alongside the excellent teaching, Christmas in London will provide a memorable all-round experience.

London is packed with festive markets and fantastic shopping during Christmas time, with plenty of options to choose from. For a jolly dose of festive London spirit, stroll through Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park for an epic celebration of all that is Christmas. You'll find winter markets, festive fairground rides, ice skating, warming winter food, grottos and of course plenty of mulled wine. Alternatively, you can head to Leicester Square for a traditional Christmas market with plenty of food, drink and christmas gift stalls, as well as a stocked programme of festive performances in the Spiegeltent. If buying gifts in on your list, why not spend time visiting the best Christmas shops London has to offer such as Harrods, Fortnum and Mason or Selfridges.

AmitChristmas Carols and Trafalgar Square
An evening of Christmas carols is a surefire way to sprinkle some holiday spirit into your time with us. Head to Trafalgar Square and experience the wonder of various carol groups singing beneath the world-famous Trafalgar Square Christmas tree. Alternatively you can purchase tickets to watch Livability's Annual Christmas Carol Service at St Martin-in-the-Fields which is also in Trafalgar Square.


The famous Christmas Lights of Oxford and Regent Street
Be dazzled by the spectacular Christmas lights and seasonal window displays lining the iconic Oxford Street. Enjoy the picture-perfect decorations while ticking items off your Christmas shopping list in the famous shopping street. Regent Street also has a wonderful display of Christmas decorations which set the West End alight with a seasonal sparkle. Last year, Regent Street put on the largest Christmas lights installation in London, with more than 300,000 lights and 16 magnificent spirits. There are plenty of other options to choose from too!
