It’s almost Christmas! As we approach the big day, thousands flock to the heart of London to soak up the atmosphere and rush around to pick up that last minute gift.

London’s Leicester Square has always been a go-to attraction at this most wonderful time of the year, and this Christmas it’s set up for lots of activities. Here are some of the things on offer there if you are looking for inspiration or to celebrate the festive week in style.

A bustling, lively and bright Christmas Market is open in Leicester Square again this year. There is no better way to make you feel Christmassy than having a mulled cider in hand while perusing the festive market stalls. The market will also be where you find Leicester Square’s very own Santa (book now so you don’t miss out) and a Spiegel tent filled with amazing shows to thrill and excite.

For Christmas this year, why not gift your loved ones with some quality time together. Sometimes the best movies come out later in the year, so Cineworld Leicester Square offer special gift cards and boxes, packaged to whisk that someone special away on a magical adventure to the cinema at a time of their choosing.

The Chandelier Experience at Her Majesty’s Theatre allows you to experience The Phantom of the Opera in a way that transports you back to 19th Century Paris. Waited upon by your own red-coated butler, seated in the best seats in the house and an unlimited bar for up to 45 minutes pre-show and during the interval…what’s not to love?
