A West End Festive Tour

£12 members, £15 non-members

This sparkling 2hr evening tour will be led by London Blue Badge Tour Guide Diane Burstein, after which your group will be able to enjoy a Christmas drink together.*

The tour is open to all ages (most are 50+) and Diane will introduce Who Londoners to each other at the beginning of the event.

Hear a 5-minute snippet of Diane talking on BBC Radio London‘s Breakfast Show:

The West End of London is always a magical place at Christmas with seasonal window displays and colourful lights.

Diane promises to reveal some unique stories behind the stores and some history of our Christmas traditions. Did you know that in 1935 Mr Selfridge created Selfridge’s first exclusive Christmas storefront lights?

The best decorations, however, are often in the side streets. This tour will seek out these hidden corners as you walk from the elegance of St James’s with its historic independent shops, to the chic of Bond Street and the razzamatazz of Oxford Street.


On the way you will discover:
– the street named after a saint to improve the behaviour of its residents,
– a museum dedicated to two very different musicians,
– the store which more or less invented Christmas as we know it today.


*After the guided tour finishes (at about 8pm), Diane will take your group to a nearby bar where you can buy yourself a Christmas drink to enjoy together.

This event will be full of Christmas spirit – RSVP below!

Meeting Point: Outside Green Park Station – south exit adjacent to The Ritz Hotel.
End Point: Bar in Marble Arch.
