Kick off your Christmas in Greenwich
It's a perfect place to get into the seasonal swing, so come and see Santa at London's brand-new Christmas festival, Greenwich Winter Time, in the grounds of the Old Royal Naval Gollege. There's an ice-rink, entertainment every day and a Christmas market, so make this the start of your seasonal celebrations.
Stick around for Advent Windows, a beautiful prelude to Christmas, which could only happen in Greenwich, with gloriously decorated windows opening each day of December.
Greenwich Market is ideal for individual gifts and goodies - the perfect alternative to the glitz and glamour of Oxford Street - and dont miss out on the mince pies and mulled wine!
After dark at Eltham Palace, there are strings of lanterns laced through the boughs of trees and fairy lights twinkling behind leaves at Enchanted Eltham Palace while Christmas skies come to Woolwich when the Royal Arsenal hosts Museums of the Moon.
Greenwich is spreading the Christmas joy !
