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.

Each year, the 25-metre (82-foot) tree is illuminated with hundreds of lightbulbs set in vertical strings of light.

Don't miss the lighting of the famous Christmas tree in early December (date TBC). There is also a blessing of the crib ceremony (date TBC), which features a torchlit procession and music from St Martin-in-the-Fields church.

And you can enjoy carols around the Christmas tree with a series of concerts during the festive season, as you soak up the magical atmosphere of London’s famous square. Performances usually take place from 4pm to 8pm on weekdays, and from 2pm to 6pm on weekends.
