A trip to Soho during the Christmas period makes for a fantastic experience as the area features shops such as the famous toy shop, Hamleys, and the beautiful department store Liberty London.

Liberty London is world-famous for its striking building and fantastic interior. The store itself gives off an almost magical quality at any time of year but, at Christmas, the magic comes to life with incredible displays and stunning decorations. Liberty is a great place to visit if you want to be able to pick up Christmas gifts for the whole family in one place. With everything from clothing and toys, to luxury food items, there is something for everyone here.


Knightsbridge is a popular area of London, particularly when it comes to shopping, and Christmas time offers a truly special experience. There are plenty of shops to choose from, but one of the best places for a festive shopping trip has to be the world-renowned department store, Harrods.

Harrods is a luxury department store which sells everything that you could possibly hope for when you are looking for Christmas gifts for your family and friends.
