Christmas in London

As the birthplace of the traditional Victorian Christmas, it's hard to think of many cities that are more festive than London.

Extensive Christmas markets, plenty of olde worlde pubs and loads of Christmas activities including ice skating, polar bars and pantomime watching make London one of the best places to soak up that festive spirit.

And of course, with the city boasting the most vibrant nightlife in the country, there are plenty of opportunities to soak up another kind of Christmas spirit too.

Check out our guides to Christmas in London, where you find a list of London Christmas events, shopping, hotels and restaurants in London to really make the most out of your Christmas in the Capital.
