Royal Museums Greenwich - Celebrate Christmas in Greenwich 🎄


Christmas in Greenwich
Get ready, Christmas is coming to Greenwich!
Join us for a festive season full of unmissable events, fun hands-on activities and storytelling across all four of our sites. 

The Queen’s House Ice Rink opens on 17 November and is the perfect way to get you into the Christmas spirit. Or go for a leisurely stroll around Greenwich and spot the festive displays in the windows of venues around the town centre. A new one is unveiled every day in December to mark the countdown to Christmas. Then warm up inside and build your very own Christmas tree decoration at Cutty Sark or spot Christmas items in our collections.
And finally, add some sparkle to your season and head to Greenwich Market for the annual Lantern Parade and Christmas light switch-on on 16 November.
