5 things to do in London this Christmas
Even though we’ve joined Tier 3, there’s still lots to do in London this year to get you in the Christmas spirit and feeling excited about this special time of year. Here’s just a few of our favourite activities that all of the family can enjoy safely this Christmas.
Ice Skating at Hampton Court Palace or The Queen’s House Greenwich
An essential Christmas activity for the whole family, these two spots are two of our favourites for floating around on ice set to the backdrop of beautiful architecture adorned with Christmas decorations.
Hampton Court Palace and The Queen’s House Greenwich are both going ahead, even in Tier 3, with strict hygiene measures in place. Both set in front of the homes of former royals – Hampton Court Palace is Henry VIII’s historic home, while The Queen’s House was built for James I’s Queen
A Chelsea Christmas
Chelsea has transformed into a winter wonderland of Christmas lights, alfresco dining, live entertainment and a festive food market. Weekends in December will see roaming entertainment add to the atmosphere, with live music and festive performers. This beautiful part of London is perfect to soak in the Christmas atmosphere, and their Christmas lights are spectacular.
Selfridges Christmas Market
Selfridges first-ever Christmas Market combines Covid-secure open air shopping with some of London’s best street food and family friendly fairground rides. A host of stalls, showcasing a number of small independent brands, offer rich pickings on the Christmas shopping front, with real Christmas trees, wreaths, decorations and hand-picked gifts and toys to choose from.
King’s Cross Christmas Market
One of London’s newest, (and one of our new favourite areas), Coals Drop Yard in Kings Cross is putting on a Christmas Market this year. Following its debut on Lower Stable Street earlier this year, the market will make a comeback this December to showcase an eclectic mix of independent brands, creatives and makers.
Hatton Garden Christmas walk
