It's safe to say that Christmas is fast-approaching (how quickly has this year gone?!) and the festivities here in London are well and truly about to take off!
U&I Travel have picked some of our favourite happenings which are taking place all over London between now and Christmas which we think you're going to love!
Cue X factor... and in no particular order...
1. Winter Wonderland
Embrace the Christmas spirit as Winter Wonderland returns to London's Hyde Park and it's now open! This free-to-enter family event is one of the best things to do in London at Christmas. Featuring a huge selection of festive entertainment and activities, from ice skating and circus shows to a Christmas market and live music, there's enough fun things to do to fill a whole day and evening.
Here are our top tips:
- Buy tickets in advance (book yours here).
- Visit during weekdays if possible, rather than evenings or weekends (to avoid mega busyness!)
- Wrap up warm!
- Take your kids, there's lots for them to enjoy, including meeting Santa!
- Use contactless when making payments (cash is also accepted).
2. Hogwarts in the snow
Winter has arrived at the wizarding world, with a true festive makeover. Glittering Christmas trees line the Great Hall and a replica festive feast including flaming Christmas puddings is laid out on the long tables; while the top section of the hall is transformed for the Yule Ball with snow, icicles and an orchestra of magical instruments.
