London has played host to some truly spectacular Christmas trees this year...
1. St James' beautiful Christmas tree presides over Jermyn Street, the home of shirt-makers Turnbull and Asser and gentleman's outfitters Hackett (image via timeout.com).
2. We loved St Paul's traditional tree, but were even more excited to spot Paddington Bear beside it! The wooden statue was created by photographer Rankin, and is part of the London Paddington trail. He'll be hanging around until December 30th!
3. Covent Garden's red-and-white Christmas tree must be one of the biggest (and brightest) in London. Standing in its own, over-sized tub, it shares the limelight with a 22-foot-tall silver reindeer.
4. Trafalgar Square's stately tree was a gift from Norway, to thank Britain for its support during World War II. It was lit by the Mayor of London, the Norwegian Ambassador and the governing Mayor of Oslo - a tradition dating back to 1947.
