From making your own gingerbread house at The Guard House to a trip to Santa's grotto in the garden at Dukes Head Hotel, you can rely on Young's to put on a whole host of family-friendly Christmas events in London. There's even a cosy festive market, bonus.

Anyone aged 10 or over can join the whole family for the festive edition of Boogie Shoes Silent Disco Walking Party. Setting off in the West End, the immersive dance tour brings you feelgood tunes from the 70s to the 00s, including Crimbo classics, flash mobs and some secret surprises, making it one of the best things to do at Christmas in London with children.

A family Christmas in London isn't complete without getting messy with the kids. Biscuiteers' baking events get a yuletide makeover come the festive season, offering the chance to ice biscuits in the shape of plump puds, crackers and even well-loved characters like The Snowman.
