Paid surveys UK reveal top festive fun this December

A man and woman at a Christmas market enjoy hot drinks and look forward to the top festive activities as revealed by our paid survey

Fancy some festive fun this December? Paid surveys have revealed the top 10 seasonal delights in the UK this December – and it’s more exciting than ever this year!

Singing Christmas carols round the tree certainly has its place, but this year the UK is hosting some of the most exciting festive offerings outside of Lapland! To get you in the Christmassy spirit, here are the top 10 festive attractions to visit this year.

Paid surveys reveal top 10 festive attractions in the UK

OK, so the amazing Lapland UK may have topped paid surveys as THE best Christmas attraction, but as it’s now fully booked we’re going to omit this from our top 10. These other wonderful winter delights are actually still possible to see! Here we go...

  1. London’s Winter Wonderland is as wondrous as ever. There truly is something for everyone, with rides, ice skating, big shows and a massive market – but best of all it’s free to enter. Get there early though, as it’s extremely popular (and rightly so).

  2. Jump into Christmas in the Llechwedd Slate Caverns - with the world’s biggest underground trampoline. It’s true! Llechwedd Slate Caverns hosts a special light display and Santa’s grotto, as well as their amazing Bounce Below in the caves. Perfect for working off that chocolate log!

  3. Ever heard of the Living Advent Calendar? Visit Henley-on-Thames during advent to witness a free performance every evening, as a different establishment opens its doors. A bit more exciting than chocolate!

  4. Bournemouth’s Gardens of Light is perfect for Christmas fans of all ages. As well as beautiful displays to wow and enchant, you’ll find a giant lava lamp display, a modern grotto in the bandstand and an ice rink.

  5. Fancy something less ‘Christmassy’, and more celebratory? Brighton’s Burning of the Clocks is a unique festival held on the shortest day of the year (21st December). Perfect for those of us who simply can’t wait until the warmer weather starts again!

  6. Norwich’s stunning Tunnel of Light is a real showstopper. Made from 50,000 LEDs, which mimic the Northern Lights, it also features projections and wonderful music. Best of all, it goes on into January if you’re too busy in the run up to Christmas.

  7. Like the idea of a train ride, but not keen on your local farm as a backdrop? In the North Yorkshire Moors you can ride the train and visit Santa, surrounded by stunning scenery and real life reindeer. Certainly one not to miss for train fans.

  8. The Botanical Gardens in Birmingham offers a magical Christmas experience, for garden lovers and Christmas lovers alike. Discover The Twelve Days of Christmas, a tunnel of lights, a mistletoe moment, a scented fire garden and even a Singing Tree!

  9. Some people travel to Germany for the iconic Christmas markets, but we think Scotland has some of the best on offer. Glasgow and Edinburgh markets will fill you with festive cheer whilst you fill your boots – don’t forget to warm up with a classic mulled wine and mince pie to keep your shopping strength up.

  10. Birmingham also has some of the best events this Christmas, with a full programme of festive fancies going on throughout the city this month – with everything from big wheels to Victorian light shows and even Love Actually Live. We couldn’t choose our favourite, so we’ll leave it up to you to decide!

Whatever you plan to do this Christmas, we wish you a happy and peaceful one full of festive fun!
