London Lights Up For Christmas: Where To Seek Refuge This Festive Season!

Oxford Street

Yes, it’s that time of year again. The time when the dark winter nights are illuminated by twinkling, sparkling Christmas lights.

With Oxford Street being switched on today, and Regent Street to follow next week, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas more and more each day!

My first Christmas in London was spent wandering the streets gazing at the lights I’d seen so many times on television and, although it’s cliché, it really is a magical time of year.

But with all that joy that comes with tinsel and shiny things, comes an equally heavy dose of Christmas shopping blues! Is there anything more stressful than bustling down Oxford Street, laden down with bags, trying to dodge other shoppers and tourists?

So when you’re weary, and you feel like your arms are about to drop off from holding bags and you’ve poked yourself in the eye with wrapping paper one too many times… why not escape the hustle and bustle and seek refuge in one of the many restaurants surrounding the shopping district?

With many offering special festive offers, the following restaurants are perfect for a post-shopping treat – whether you are after a quick refuel or something a bit more indulgent!
