As our friends in the Northern hemisphere countdown to the festive season, their days get shorter and a little cooler.
While we wouldn't trade our warm Kiwi holiday season, we do believe there's something quite magical about a winter Christmas.

With that in mind, we thought we'd share three dazzling (and totally festive reasons) to visit London this November.
- Switched On Lights - 15th November sees the Regent Street Christmas Lights switched on, ready to kick off the festive season. Home to the largest lights installation in the capital, Regent Street is best known for its awe-inspiring ‘The Spirit of Christmas’ lights. These stunning suspended spirits were inspired by Regent Street’s very first Christmas lights, which were the first ever central London Christmas lights in 1954. Find out more.
- Winter Wonderland - The Hyde Park extravaganza returns to the capital once again on 23rd November. Fast becoming part of many family traditions the event features shows, parties, an ice rink and Bavarian village. You can shop, eat and drink in a delightfully festive atmosphere. Visit the Winter Wonderland website.
- Three Wine Men Christmas Tasting - It's the tasting of the year! Oz Clarke, Tim Atkin MW and Olly Smith are your hosts on 23rd and 24th November, when Lindley Hall is transformed into a wine wonderland. We'll be bringing some sparkling cheer to the occasion and can't wait to see you there! Buy tickets.
