London is one of the UK’s largest cities, and there are plenty of activities on offer for any visitor. With a little forward planning, you can have a great night out. Just remember—have fun, but drink responsibly. You don’t want the night to be so big that you don’t remember it!

Accommodation

Make sure that you’ve got somewhere to stay for the evening! Don’t forget that the many hotels, hostels, etc. will all be filling up far in advance of Christmas. Don’t think that you’ll be able to wing it on the night, or you’ll likely end up on the street. If your group is planning to stay on in London for a few nights, it may be worthwhile booking some serviced apartments.

It’s also important to note that some places will have a “no parties” policy, so it’s probably best not to expect festivities to continue once you’re back at the hotel. Still, that doesn’t mean that you can’t crack open a Christmas hamper and enjoy a few treats before bed.

Dinner

London is well known for having some of the best restuarants in the world. Boasting over 50 Michelin starred restuarants, you are guaranteed to find the most exquisite menu’s on offer.

Some of the best known restaurants to visit are:

Nightlife

London’s nightlife presents all manner of different options for those who are out and about in the city. Bars, clubs and pubs are available for those who are keen for a night out on the town, offering a choice of live music, dance music or simply a quiet evening with a few drinks.

There are also a large selection of theatres on offer, showing classic musicals such as Cats and Starlight Express as well as more modern shows such as We Will Rock You and Thriller Live. Shows are running throughout the year and are especially popular in the run up to Christmas, so you’ll probably want to book early to make sure that you can get in.

Those who are after a more traditional bar or pub experience won’t be disappointed either—there’s all manner of venues tucked away around the city!

Christmas Activities

There will be quite a few Christmas activities going on throughout the weeks leading up to December 25th in London. Popular activities such as Christmas markets, fairs and Ice Skating are always worth a visit. There will also be Christmas carol concerts at several locations on most evenings.

Additionally, there will be a number of special events taking place to usher in the Christmas season throughout November and December. Numerous concerts and the turning on of the city’s Christmas lights are among the highlights, so make sure you have a look online closer to the date of your travel.
