Santa Claus has, in fact, come to town.
In the course of making a list and checking it twice, Santa Claus has come for a little nosey around London. Whilst he ascertains who’s naughty and nice, adorable Instagram account @santaclauslondon has been tracking his movements, and the results are simply charming.
Clearly taking a little R&R before his round-the-world trip in – checks calendar – twelve days, Santa has been hitting all the popular spots. He’s been spotted lounging around Covent Garden…
…eyeing up a spin on the Natural History Museum ice rink…
…and even checking out the local theatre scene.
Oh, and like any self-respecting London tourist, he even headed to Oxford Street.
And whilst everybody’s waiting for the man with the bag, Santa Claus is just living his best life.
Santa Claus London is a collaboration between popular London Instagrammers, Neil Andrews and Dimitar Hristov. 2018 is the second time they’ve caught Santa on camera – he also popped up around town last year.
It’s really rather charming, isn’t it?
They’ve also papped Santa outside of his usual work hours…
…and even doing his vital Christmas prep!
Give Santa a follow to see where he ends up next!
