Celebrate Christmas this year with Viator, and see the top London attractions sparkle away from the crowds!

The Christmas lights, which famously light up Bond Street and Oxford Circus each year, set the scene for a festive shopping frenzy right up until the tail end of Christmas Eve.  You can even do a Christmas Eve Lights Tour in London Led by Santa! In peaceful contrast to the pre-Christmas chaos, Christmas Day sees Londoners retire from the high street excess in favor of unwrapping presents at home, leaving the city streets empty for you to explore.

A great way to do that is with the Christmas Day in London on a Vintage Bus or Christmas Day Lunch Cruise on the River Thames. Grab this rare opportunity to see London at its best – free from public transport as well as the crowds.  It’s a perfect opportunity for festive photos of top London attractions such as Big Ben, the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey and Trafalgar Square.

If you fancy venturing further afield, then enjoy a smooth journey along quiet roads to see iconic England landmarks such as the UNESCO listed Stonehenge circle, or Leeds Castle. You can spend Christmas Eve in Windsor, Stonehenge and Bath, at Warwick Castle, Stratford-upon-Avon, the Cotswolds and Oxford, or at Leeds Castle, Canterbury and Dover.

Don’t forget the British tradition of Boxing Day. This holiday has origins going back to the Middle Ages, and is celebrated as a bank holiday throughout Britain. Celebrate in style with a Boxing Day Tour to Warwick Castle, Stratford-upon-Avon, The Cotswolds and Oxford, at Windsor, Stonehenge and Bath, or at Leeds Castle, Canterbury, Dover and Greenwich.

Christmastime is an amazing time to visit England. Get the most out of your holiday travel with some of our most spectacular tours. And of course, Happy Holidays!
