London Christmas market

Magical experience of lights

Every big city looks beautiful at Christmas - and London is no exception. Even if there's no snow, Christmas time in London can be a magical experience if you know where to go and what to do.London Christmas lights really light up the capital's streets during the bleak winter months. Christmas in London just wouldn’t be Christmas without the stunning array of decorative lights that adorn the streets throughout the festive season, bringing light and colour to London throughout the winter.

Christmas in London is wonderful. There's the chaos of Christmas shopping and the festive fun of Christmas parties and events - and the tranquility of Christmas Day and Boxing Day when you can walk (and drive) around without drowning in shoppers.

But of course that soon ends when the New Year sales kick in!! This site covers all the best things to do at during your London Christmas. London ice rinks are open for a season of festive ice skating this winter, the perfect way to enjoy long evenings in the run up to Christmas.

Take advantage of outdoor ice rinks in London and go for a twirl under the stars with friends and family. You’ll be spoilt for choice with so many ice skating options in London this Christmas. Christmas Day is the one day of the year when London practically shuts down.

Major sights and shops close their doors, the Tube and buses come to a standstill, and most people are at home unwrapping presents. But it's also the ideal time to take advantage of the crowd-free streets and go for a stroll - and if you fancy a bit of guidance, the people at London Walks are hosting two tours on Christmas Day.

Most churches hold services on Christmas Day, with those at St Paul's, St Martin-in-the-Fields and Westminster Abbey among the most spectacular. Come Boxing Day, there's the traditional Premier League fixtures, the race meeting at Kempton Park and, of course, the start of the end-of-year sales.
