Enjoying Christmas in London


If you’re planning on visiting London around this Christmas-time, then we’ve got a whole list of activities around Trafalgar Square for you to consider. Visitors staying at the Park Grand Paddington Hotel will have close access to the area, and each year during Christmas, the area is presented with a large Norwegian tree. It takes place between the 4th December and the 5th January, and this year marks the 69th tree to come from London. The tree is decorated in Norwegian style.


Just one minute away from Trafalgar square, guests can visit the National Gallery, Nelson’s Colum, Ripley’s Believe or not famous theatre show, the household cavalry museum, the vertical chill ice wall Covent garden, the London Transport Museum, the London Film museum. In essence, this is the hub of London, and for entertainment you can’t really go wrong if you stay at the hotels near Paddington.

Those are just a few of the top tourist attractions in the area. Nelson’s column was built to celebrate the victory over the Spanish and French at Trafalgar in 1805. Nelson’s column was entirely built from granite and is a 185ft high. Covent Garden Market provides a great contrasting experience to the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street. Here the atmosphere is a bit more relaxed, full of little boutique and specialty shops.

In conclusion, London is a great place to visit during the Christmas period, and with flights and accommodation available at reduced costs during this season, it’s probably the most cost effective time to visit. Besides, with the sales and Christmas spirit around the air, you likely will enjoy the city in a way that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to during another season. The winter does have its downsides, with shorter days, and colder temperatures – but so long as you rise early and wear warm clothing – you’ll be able to make the best of your days.
