We want to share with you a selection of our favourite Festive events and highlights – a proper London insiders view!

The Window Displays

Without even entering the stores, the displays are fabulous! Here are a few of the most iconic and wonderful Christmas windows in London, each with their own theme to entice you in..

Fortnum & Mason have a Christmas Past theme with scenes of the River Thames frozen over. It was tradition to host great markets and events on the frozen waters and F&M have adorned  their windows with indulgent goodies and gifts all available inside!

F&M Christmas Window Display

Harrods is a must on the Christmas Window Display trail – just take a look at this Land of Make Believe – only Stella McCartney ballerina’s and fairies! Anyone not tempted to go inside the big wide doors must be seriously Bah-Humbug!

Ice -skating at The Natural History Museum

A visit to the NHM is a joy in itself – the walls ooze history and secrets. Watching children’s faces light up at the huge dinosaur displays is something for the memory bank for sure! Imagine combining a trip with real ice-skating outside? Well – it’s all possible until January 5th – wrap up warm!…although there is a great cafe for hot chocolate and sticky buns..oh and mulled wine!

Ice Skating with Dinosaurs

Carols at St Pauls Cathedral

After the indulgence and adrenalin of shopping, sight-seeing and mulled wine, take a pause to remember the spiritual significance of Christmas. Regardless of religion or background, this super special event will leave you spell-bound and tingling. Soak in all the magic of this time of year with carol singing and tradition in one of London’s most significant buildings.

..and breathe. St Paul's Cathedral
