Mulled wine cupped between mittened hands, the scent of chestnuts and gingerbread wafting through the air, pretty lights, and endless pop-ups and Christmas markets to enjoy: London is a great place to be during the festive season. It might feel strange to start celebrating so soon, but magnificent Christmas trees are popping up all across the city already. Here are our favourites.
Pretty Christmas Trees in London 2023
The Trafalgar Square Tree
Now, we admit this is notoriously one of London’s ugliest Christmas trees – but the Trafalgar Square tree is a classic for a reason. The tree arrived in the UK capital on 4 December 2023, making the journey to the UK from Norway as per tradition (now in its 76th year). The lights don’t go on until Thursday 7 December, but you can take a look at the tree being set up below:
