Christmas Season in London

(7 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis)
London & environs

London is enchanting during the Christmas season, when twinkling lights, lively Christmas markets and festive events create a magical atmosphere for children of all ages. This comprehensive private tour combines the best of London’s holiday highlights with important historical attractions, fascinating museums and famous landmarks.

During flexible touring, visit nostalgic Christmas markets, walk through streets decorated with Christmas trees and sparkling lights, see Christmas-themed window displays, enjoy reservations for afternoon tea with a holiday twist, and explore favorite neighborhoods that are especially charming this time of year. Enjoy shopping at historic shops, tiny boutiques, iconic toy stores such as Hamleys, and renowned British department stores such as Harrods and Fortnum & Mason. Artisans of Leisure can also arrange ice skating at outdoor rinks in front of landmark buildings, an evening stroll through Hyde Park Winter Wonderland, and tickets to theater productions, choral performances, Christmas carol sing-alongs and performances of The Nutcracker.

With your private guide, tour famous landmarks such as the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, the British Museum, Covent Garden, the London Eye, St. Paul's Cathedral and Buckingham Palace. Explore incredible London museums such as the Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum, Churchill War Rooms or the Museum of Natural History. Perhaps visit lesser-known museums such as Sir John Soane's Museum or the Charles Dickens Museum, which is decorated to evoke a Dickensian-era Christmas during the holidays. Also visit favorite parks, hidden squares, beautiful backstreets, historic pubs and other highlights of London.

During your stay in London, enjoy a private excursion to favorite destinations decorated for Christmas. Options include Windsor Castle, Kew Gardens (renowned for spectacular Christmas light displays), Greenwich, Hampton Court Palace, Oxford, Bath and Stonehenge. Perhaps visit heritage houses in the English countryside that are known for their magnificent Christmas decorations such as Blenheim Palace or Highclere Castle, the filming location for the Downton Abbey TV series. Upon request, we can also arrange a tour of Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter to experience the magic of Hogwarts in the Snow.

We can also make dining reservations and recommend where to meet Father Christmas (Santa Claus) or attend a Christmas Eve service. Accommodation is at one of London's finest and most festive luxury hotels. London is a wonderful destination any time of year, but the best time to experience the Christmas season in London is from late November through the end of December.
