Twinkling lights and lovely warm wine, Christmas in London is pretty in sparkling decor with plenty of good food and a winter vibe to match. That aside, the festive season can be stressful, especially when it comes to entertaining and feeding a crowd. This year can be different though, so ditch the turkey, cancel your work’s end-of-year night out at the local, and celebrate Christmas and New Years in style at our luxury boutique hotels instead. Here’s our guide to the ultimate Christmas in London...


Christmas at St Martins Lane London

The festive season is upon us and it’s time to raise a glass to the good times ahead.
