DECEMBER EVENTS

Midnight Mass at St Paul's Cathedral: 24th December

This is one of many celebrations held in the Cathedral through the month of December.

Christmas 2014 in London: 25th December

London acquires a special sparkle around Christmas time. The weather is frosty, the Christmas lights are twinkling, and shoppers line the streets.

The centrepiece of London's festive spectacle is the giant Christmas tree – a gift to London from the people of Norway – which is beautifully adorned and set up in Trafalgar Square each year.

There's a wealth of family entertainment on offer over the festive season, from temporary ice skating rinks to Santa's grottos and pantomimes.  On Christmas Day, London's hundreds of Christian churches, chapels and cathedrals hold Christmas services, which everyone is welcome to attend.

The Peter Pan Cup in Hyde Park: 25th December

While children across London are eagerly waiting to unwrap their presents on Christmas morning, members of the Serpentine Swimming Club will be preparing to swim their traditional 100 yard (91m) Christmas Day race.

Swimmers have been meeting in London's Hyde Park on Christmas morning since 1864 to compete in the famous Christmas Day swim, the first of which was won by H. Coulter. He won a gold medal, which became the customary prize for the winner.   

New Year's Eve in London: 31st December 

Celebrate New Year's Eve in London - it's one of the capital’s biggest party nights, with a host of festivities, fireworks and fun!

Be dazzled by the spectacular firework display along the River Thames, launched from the foot of the London Eye and rafts on the Thames, visible from most of Central London.  Once you have enjoyed the magnificent view, head into Central London to see in the New Year in one of the city’s many restaurants, bars and clubs. 

The fun doesn’t stop there, as there are a number of events taking place on New Year’s Day too!  This year marks the 27th anniversary of New Year’s Day Parade, a tradition that has brought the weird and the wonderful to the streets of London.
