Things to do in London this Christmas

Christmas is coming, and this is one of the most magical times of the year to enjoy London.

This year will be a little bit different due to the coronavirus pandemic, but there are still a lot of incredible things to do in this fantastic city. You just need to wrap up warm, remember to follow the guidelines and you will have an amazing and safe experience out in the capital.

These are some of the coolest and safest things that you can still do, check them out:


  1. Take a boat on the Thames

Discover the best views of the most iconic sights of London with Thames River Sightseeing.

All of our boats have safety measures in place, with limits on the number of passengers, socially distanced seating, and regular cleaning. We are proud to say we have been awarded Visit England’s We’re Good To Go industry standard. Come on-board, relax and enjoy the vista! We’re sailing every Saturday and Sunday from Westminster, Embankment, Tower Bridge Quay and Greenwich piers. Book your tickets here.


  1. Admire the best Christmas lights

This is a perfect evening plan. Step outside and be amazed by the most magnificent and magical Christmas lights sparkling in the city. Discover the most spectacular and famous ones in Oxford Street or Regent Street, the most quirky and distinctive in Carnaby Street or the incredible giant Christmas Tree in the iconic Trafalgar Square.

If you are looking for a truly wintery Christmas experience, this is your must-do activity. Unfortunately, some of the most famous London ice rinks, like London Eye or the Natural History Museum, are not returning this year, but you can still go ice skating in stunning locations such as Hampton Court Palace, the Queen’s House in Greenwich, Alexandra Palace or Canary Wharf.
