Duration: 1,5 hours
Experience the wonder of glittering Central London up close this winter with a brand new Christmas Tour. See the dazzling light displays, the grottos and hundreds upon hundreds of decorated Christmas Trees.
London can trace its first Christmas celebrations back a thousand years, but with each new generation came new traditions to join the old ones. On this tour, you will travel back to Victorian London to discover the origins of Britain’s modern Christmas celebrations, the Christmas tree, crackers, Christmas cards, the inspirations behind Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and so much more.
You know the holiday, now learn the history!
