Every year we try and give you all a few ideas for Christmas. Maybe you have family visiting, maybe we highlight one thing you haven’t heard of, either way we wanted to share with your what our picks are this year in London for 2019.
Ready steady GO… who is on for a race? We have the best one to start the crazy Christmas season; head for Covent Garden on Saturday 7 December 11-1pm for the great Christmas pudding race, and watch the teams compete, whilst raising money for Cancer Research.
Christmas isn’t Christmas without The Snowman at the Peacock Theatre. A staple in our children’s childhood. A tradition that is so easy to pass down year after year after year.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: If you want an afternoon tea with a godchild or maybe your godchildren, take them for an afternoon tea at One Aldwych for a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory themed tea.
Fortnum and Mason have storytelling with Father Christmas. Then head downstairs for the tastiest Christmas treats in London.
Neighbourhood Cinema has a variety of Christmas themed films this year. Take your pick or book the ROH screenings of Coppélia or Sleeping Beauty.
David Walliams brings his Billionaire Boy to the stage for the first time. This absolutely ticks the box for fun, magic and humour, or with older one see The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe at The Bridge Theatre.
Hogwarts in the Snow. Harry Potter studio tours are pure magic. Take your child on one of the greatest studio tours in the UK. Located just an hour from London at the Warner Studios.
Fancy an old-fashioned Christmas Fayre – well who doesn’t love a festive fayre? Find it 6-8 December at Hampton Court Palace. Home of Henry VIII and a maze to lose your children if the season becomes too much – just kidding!
One of our customers recommended a beautiful exhibition downstairs at Japan House in Kensington. WOW City Lights and Woodland Shade, allow you to put your face on a traditional Japanese doll. There is also a wonderful interactive wall where you to build trees for birds to hop onto. Suitable for age 6 and under. It is utterly charming and free.
Finally remember that Elizabeth Street have their Christmas Fair on Sunday 1 December, and in Marylebone, our evening is 5 December. Do pop along and see us. You may even find an Elf in the shop!
