London is fully transformed during the christmas period. The nights get frosty and the christmas lights are all lit aglow. From the bright illuminations of Harrods, to the famous Norwegian Spruce tree in Trafalgar Square, there is no better time of year to visit the capital!

A Magical Christmas in ‘Amazing London’

Here at London Magical Tours nothing makes us happier than hearing how much you enjoyed your tour with us. We would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone and share one of our favourite letters to Santa Claus that was filled out as part of our London Christmas Tours.

We would like to wish everyone a Magical Christmas and very happy 2015!

Dear Santa Claus,

The bestest thing I have seen in amazing London today was beautiful Buckingham Palace. I chose beautiful Buckingham Palace because it was fun seeing the solgers do there march and seeing the special flag on top of the beautiful buckingham palace. My most favourite part was seeing the lovely horses taking a carafe on the back. I loved seeing amazing London!
