Admire the magnificent Christmas tree 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. See the world-famous tree beautifully decorated in a traditional Norwegian style and sing along to carols around the tree during the countdown to Christmas.

This year’s lighting of the tree takes place on 1 December, illuminating the 22-metre (72-foot) tree with around 770 lightbulbs set in vertical strings of light. Soak up the magical atmosphere and enjoy an evening of Christmas festivities during the switch-on ceremony.
