"As winter descends upon London, seasonal spirit simply sweeps the streets. Come the end of November red-cheeked shoppers, carol singers and merry revellers bustle across the city wrapped in scarves and hats. With carols ringing out from the churches and the sweet smell of roasted chestnuts floating in the air, London is one of the most magical places on Earth for festive fun.

"To celebrate, London becomes engulfed by a welcome array of festive activities. You can sample a great British tradition and catch a riotous pantomime or hit the West End and take in a show. Christmas classics like 'The Nutcracker', 'The Snowman' and 'Peter Pan' could again be lighting up the London stage.

"There are lots of traditional treats on offer too - gather around the Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square (left and below)and sing carols or explore the wealth of Yuletide fairs for Christmas presents..........."
