The Most Magical Places To Do Your Christmas Shopping In London

We’ve rounded up some of the most festive places to do your Christmas shopping in central London.

The John Lewis Christmas advert is out, and that’s seen by many as the definitive green light to talk about the C word. Meanwhile, the rest of us live in total denial and disbelief that we’re almost in December. Either way, Christmas is nigh, and the keen ones amongst us have already planned our Christmas shopping. If you can’t tell where we stand at Secret London, let’s just say that The Pogues were playing as we scrolled through Instagram and compiled this list… (? by @levanterman)

As always, Harrods is totally ‘lit’ at this time of year…

But what we love most about John Lewis at this time of year is their beautifully organised bauble display…

In fact, the whole Christmas shop is arranged by colour.

We don’t often advocate visits to Oxford Street or its surrounding areas, especially in the lead up to Christmas. But we can’t argue with the fact that it is absolutely magical at this time of year…
