Big on Christmassy feelings but short on cash? Yeah, same. This is your guide to getting a dose of the festives for free.
1. Do a big bike ride of all the Christmas trees in central London
What’s more fun than casting a judging eye over lovely things people have lovingly created to celebrate a lovely part of the year? Not much, really. So, go on, grab a pen and get your most organised friend to make an over-complicated scoresheet. Then head out together on a tour of central London’s big-ass and big-budget Christmas trees. Start with Coal Drops Yard’s new-fangled terrarium-inspired one (made of 70 glass micro-gardens), then make your way past the chubby Covent Garden 60-footer before finishing in Trafalgar Square, home to the extremely tall and wonky boy we are gifted from Norway every single year. Multiple locations.
