Top Things to do in London at Christmas
As one of the most luxurious hotels in Chelsea, we have carefully prepared a list of some of the best Christmas attractions London has to offer this festive season.
Here at the Draycott, we always enjoy celebrating the festive season. We truly believe in Christmas magic and want to make sure you experience an enchanted Christmas full of traditions. How about a wander around the Christmas market? An afternoon in Harry Potter’s world or a typical Christmas ballet performance? The choice is now yours.
Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park
From the 17th November until the 1st January 2018, Hyde Park becomes even more wonderful as it hosts its annual Winter Wonderland. Take a stroll around the Christmas market with a warm glass of mulled wine in hand, have a go at ice-skating or take a seat on the Giant Observation Wheel for stunning views of London. All the traditionally festive ingredients to get you into the Christmas mood are only 20 minutes away from the hotel.
Christmas Lights on the Shopping Streets
It doesn’t get any more festive than when the shops put their Christmas lights up; ‘Switching-on’ on the 7th of November will occur at Oxford Street and on the 18th of November at the hotel’s close neighbour Duke of York Square. Christmas lights create a truly enchanted atmosphere full of sparkles, so if you plan on staying in London to do your Christmas shopping, discover our fantastic Christmas break offering.
Christmas Fair at Chelsea Physics Garden
Less than 20 minutes away from the hotel, Chelsea Physics Garden is a beautiful destination for a nice and peaceful walk. On Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th November, the garden is hosting the 2017 Christmas fair – ideal if you are looking for Christmas gift ideas or browsing through the festive products on offer from the 100 exhibitors.
Hogwarts in the Snow at Warner Bros. Studios
A must for Harry Potter fans, North-West London’s Warner Bros. Studios organises behind-the-scenes tours of one of the most famous book to movie successes of all time. Between the 18th of November and the 28th of January 2018, Hogwarts in the Snow provides its guests with a unique experience in a festive themed atmosphere, guaranteeing a fantastic time for all.
The Nutcracker at the Royal Opera House
If you are looking for the ultimate ballet experience this Christmas, the Nutcracker is one not-to-be missed. Make your way to the Royal Opera House in the heart of Covent Garden and get transported by the magical production of Tchaikovsky’s classic piece. Tickets are highly popular and at the time of writing, they are still available from the 27th December until the 10th January.
