Imagine a cheerful winter afternoon. You inhale crispy air mixed with notes of warm cinnamon and vanilla while you are strolling through the cobblestone Victorian streets. When you walk by enchanting Christmas shops the
merry sounds of Christmas Carols slowly fill sleepy streets and lively markets. We stop at one of them, where you try mulled wine from the Marlborough region or hot cider made from Cornish orchards.
While you bite a crispy cinnamon roll I introduce you to London Christmas history, Victorian traditions, love stories, and hearty food - everything that brings families together on this magical day.

Awesome Prince Albert stories

My wife booked it for our trip and it was an awesome tour! Even though I know a lot about Christmas traditions, I didn't know about Prince Albert and how he changed the course of Christmas history, so I am glad we came! Thank you Valerie and team!

We have been to London a few times before but never had a proper british christmas experience! Valery was awesome at sharing christmas traditions as well as helping me to get a christmas present to my daughter at one of the Queen Elizabeth favourite shops! Loved the little backyards with special christmas trees, thanks a lot
A lot of Christmas magic

Mr and Mrs Claus really know their stuff, a really fun cool tour with amazing people and a magical experience. I highly recommend this tour, we went with a small group of friends and had a blast. Found out the history from Christmas and how it really was saved. Then on to the best displays and some iconic locations, book and have a genuinely unique experience.
Christmas in London

This was an amazing tour. We learned a lot about the history of Christmas, saw Christmas trees all over London (some were hidden trees) and even learned where the Queen gets her chocolate, some current London culture, and saw a couple Harry Potter places too ❤️ we plan on doing another tour with her on our next visit!
