London doesn’t stop just because Santa’s ready to make his eagerly anticipated annual whizz-round, and neither should you. With so much on offer in the form of twinkling lights, cosy winter pop-ups, and alternative Christmas events for the unconventional, Christmas Eve is the time to take advantage of London’s winter activities before the next day’s festivities find you well-fed and well sleepy in your favourite armchair.
So in anticipation of stuffing yourself from dawn ’til dusk on Xmas day, trade an early night indoors for showing off your moves on the ice, belting out your favourite carols, wandering around Winter Wonderland or finally getting round to that panicked last-minute Christmas gift shop. Make this night before Christmas the best one yet and take a look at our top picks for things to do on Tuesday December 24 2019.
We’ll be updating this page with events for Christmas Eve 2019 as they’re announced.
