With Christmas just around the corner, thoughts have turned to the festive season, and all the fun Christmas in London can bring. So whether you’re planning a trip to the capital or are a local looking for a staycation in London, there are plenty of Christmas events happening that will get you into the seasonal spirit. We’ve added a few of our favourite events below to get you thinking about how to spend Christmas 2022. Because what is Christmas in London without lights, markets and mulled wine?
Celebrating 15 years of events, the Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park is a popular and long-running Christmas event. As a Royal Park, Hyde Park is a popular destination covering 350 acres with famous landmarks, including the Serpentine Lake, Speakers’ Corner and Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain. Expect big things from the Christmas market and Winter wonderland and immerse in all things festive. Mornings are great for families, as there is a more leisurely pace. However, when evening comes, Hyde Park is transformed by thousands of lights, perfect to explore with mulled wine, hot chocolate or Bavarian beer. The event is now ticketed and available to buy now. So get along for fun, food, shopping and much more to entertain the entire family.
Skate at Somerset House offers a chance to don ice skates in a beautiful central skate rink in the charming Somerset Christmas courtyard. The rink is family-friendly and great for an afternoon or evening out for all ages, with skate sessions running through the entire festive season, providing ample chances to visit. Booking your place is easy, as all tickets are available online for the date and session of your choice. Want more from your Somerset House visit? Discover the historic rooms converted into Christmas shops and stores with beautiful Christmas lights and decorations surrounding the rink, including food and drink stalls serving the entire festive season.
This year, the Covent Garden Christmas Village returns with an iconic Christmas tree and decorations, festive markets, mulled wine varieties and everything else required to create the most magical Christmas experience ever. This is an event the entire family can enjoy, so get everyone together and get along to what will undoubtedly be a brilliant and bright event.
Christmas lights are something London does brilliantly, with both Oxford and Regent streets lighting up the night with displays in full force. This year, Oxford Street and Regent Street lights were switched on in unison with 20 other streets, making 2022 in London the biggest Christmas light switch-on in the world!
