Admire the magnificent Christmas tree, decorated in traditional Norwegian style, which stands tall in Trafalgar Square over the festive season.

The giant Norwegian spruce has been an annual gift to London from the people of Norway since 1947, in recognition of Britain’s support during the Second World War.

This year’s lighting of the tree ceremony takes place at 6pm on 7 December, illuminating the 25-metre (82-foot) tree with hundreds of lightbulbs set in vertical strings of light.

Join in the blessing of the crib ceremony from 5.30pm on 10 December, which features a torchlit procession and music from St Martin-in-the-Fields church. And enjoy carols around the Christmas tree between 11 and 22 December as you soak up the magical atmosphere of London’s famous square.
