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 that goes on until the tail end of Christmas Eve. Shop for gifts and festive foods, before taking advantage of the abrupt change of pace that occurs on Christmas Day, when Londoners retire from the high street in favor of time spent at home. Get out into the city before noon to experience the streets empty for you to explore. Free from public transport as well as from crowds, the holiday presents a rare opportunity to see London at its best and to take festive photos with the city's top attractions.
See Big Ben, the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, and Trafalgar Square on one of many Christmas Day tours of London. Choose from vintage bus tours or a Christmas lunch cruise on the River Thames—or opt to journey further afield on a visit to iconic English landmarks, like UNESCO-listed Stonehenge or Leeds Castle.
Consider spending Christmas Eve outside of the city with a trip to Windsor, Stonehenge and Bath, or Stratford-upon-Avon, for example. And don’t forget the British tradition of Boxing Day. This holiday has origins going back to the Middle Ages, and can be celebrated with holiday-themed day tours throughout the country.
Experience the magic of London's holiday season and get the most out of your trip with some of our most spectacular tours. And of course, Happy Holidays!
