There are such high expectations for Christmas in London but once again my family and I are never disappointed year on year. This is the festive season families wait for all year. If you are spending the festivities in the Capital, Christmas in London 2014 is filled with things to do with kids including skating at local ice rinks across the city, Santa’s Grottos everywhere, fantastic theatre shows that everyone in the world envy us and impressive Christmas lights.
As every year, Covent Garden is one of the best places to hang out. This year Lego has built a huge sleigh with Santa and Reindeers. Kids can take their photos sitting next to Santa. It’s FREE too! Every Saturday afternoon from noon until 4pm there are live reindeers which kids can feed and take pictures with.

Christmas lights in London
Just browse around Central London and get lost among the rivers of Christmas lights that are currently inundating the Capital. Magnificent but chic. The theme of Regents’ Street this year is the new movie A Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb. Check out London Mums’ reviews, competition and activities related to this film.

Our favourite ice rink this year is at Broadgate (next door to Liverpool Street). There are so many famous ones across London (Natural History Museum, Somerset House, etc) though but we loved this one in particular as it has a fab restaurant called The Tasting Room, a brand new luxury pop-up bar and smokehouse, which we absolutely loved. It’s worth paying a visit!
