There are new jewelry and clothes collections out for the holidays and are available at discounted rates too. The whole city comes together in celebration as streets are filled with spruce trees, Christmas décor, mini Santas and the elves for decoration.
A visit to Trafalgar Square to admire the biggest Christmas Tree
Trafalgar Square has the biggest Spruce Tree put up and decorated beautifully. It started as a tradition by the Norwegian people who gifted the tree to London every year and the tradition continues till date. The massive sight is truly one of a kind.
Watch the Christmas Lights
Christmas has the entire London lit up with bright lights. Watch as the city sparkles with joy. Every street, nook and corner is decorated. The biggest decoration is upon the London Eye as it stands tall gleaming in the sky, looking just like the lab grown diamonds Hatton garden. Simply walking around instantly lights up your mood and the festivities are upon you.
Attend the midnight mass at Westminister Abbey
The Westminister Abbey Church next to the Palace of Westminister dates back to almost a thousand years. Attend the best midnight mass in the city in this Church. Christmas Eve brings about a different joy in everyone and the midnight mass is enjoyed by one and all. We highly recommend this for travellers to London.
London has quite a few ice skating rinks and Christmas is the time people rush to them in groups to enjoy some skating time. The rinks are decorated with backdrops of London’s famous and iconic buildings. There is beautiful lighting everywhere and it is truly a glittering, magical experience to skate away in the festive season.
Get gifts from Santa
Christmas is incomplete without gifts from Santa. Visit Santa Grotto in London to meet many Santa Clauses and get gifts from them too. The locals call him Father Christmas, so you can too. Travelers and natives come together in the Santa Grotto and kids love spending time here with the Santa Clauses. It’s like going back to children’s books all over again. If you’re the Santa in your family, consider visiting hatton garden jewelers for some of the best jewelry collections during this season.
So put your Santa caps on, dress up and get going to enjoy London’s biggest holiday season. Merry Christmas everyone!
