Where to stay for Christmas in London



It may be a little early to mention the "C" word, but when it comes to Christmas shopping, it's always best to be prepared (especially in London). If you are planning a trip to London for your Christmas shopping, then we have a list of the best shopping areas and our recommended serviced apartments in London.

1. Mayfair/West End

Luxury and High Street shopping blend together in this area and you can find High Street favourites such as Topshop, Primark and H & M alongside luxury department stores such as Selfridges and everything in between. Kid's favourite Hamleys is a shopping hotspot on Regent Street and it's never more popular than at Christmas. Oxford Street alone is lined with over 300 shops which makes it the first stop on any shopping trip to London.
