London is a special place at Christmas. Whether you’re doing your Christmas shopping along Oxford Street or enjoying a warming mulled wine in Covent Garden, it’s a wonderful place for families to get into the festive spirit. There are so many special places to go and be inspired we thought we’d ask some of our London blogger friends for their favourite christmas spots to inspire you this festive season.

Covent Garden

Emma Block, Illustrator 

“Covent Garden is my favourite Christmas spot in London. The decorations are always amazing, and it’s the perfect place to do all your last minute Christmas shopping. It’s always lovely when I have the opportunity to go on a weekday morning when it’s not too busy, it’s the perfect place to have a hot chocolate or a pot of tea and do some people watching.”


Liberty London

Fiona McLean, Lifestyle Blogger – ‘london-Unattached’

“My favourite place for Christmas is Liberty’s of London.  Why?  It’s somewhere with memories of my childhood – we went to Hamley’s for us and to Liberty’s for my mother.  It hasn’t changed from the treasure trove I remember then – beautiful things in a wonderful old, quintessentially British building.”


Fortnum and Masons

Nancy Straughan, Blogger and Homeware designer 

“I’m very lucky as in London there are so many beautiful places to explore at Christmas time. My favourite spot has to be the festive floor at Fortnum and Masons, I rarely go there but at Christmas it’s a must! I usually pick up one of their special wintery marmalades to enjoy on Christmas morning and I buy one new ornament for my tree each year, it’s a lovely tradition.”


South Bank Christmas Markets

Rachel Wheeler, Blogger – ‘Tea With Me & Friends’

“Lorna and I love nothing better at Christmas time than heading down to the Christmas Markets along the River Thames. We love the sights, sounds and smells of the markets – they always leave us feeling really Christmasey! We get wrapped up in our warm clothes and enjoy a cup of warm mulled wine – its such a great place to soak up the Christmas spirit!”


Winter Wonderland, Hyde Park

Charlie Pallett, Blogger ‘Styled By Charlie’

“London’s Winter Wonderland that covers Hyde Park for a few weeks at Christmas time is incredible. The food, the entertainment, the markets, the fair rides and the festive feeling is amazing. It’s a really unique and unforgettable experience that I feel is a ‘must’ at Christmas and worth taking a trip to the capital for. I love visiting and it’s fun for all the family, and a great festive day out.”
