Now that Christmas is upon us, more and more festive-themed attractions will be opening their doors.

From Santa grottos, Christmas tree farms, Hyde Park Winter Wonderland and the main Christmas lights, the options are endless in London.

But away from the typically costly and busy Christmas attractions, there are some more relaxing, outdoor activity that is all about the festive spirit. 

As Christmas light trails have become very popular in recent years and there's plenty in London you can visit.
