‘Tis the season! It’s time for festive decorations, holiday parties at the pub, and trimming your tree – should that be the holiday you celebrate. If you’re anything like me, you have a collection of ornaments from a lifetime of travel and adventure… but do you have any London ornaments to hang on the boughs of your Christmas tree?
In this post, I’ll detail some of the loveliest, cutest, and most charming London Christmas out there. I’ve scoured the internet to find each one, and as you’ll see, it’s hard to choose which one to add to your tree this year. (Personally, I decided to splurge and got the six-ornament box from London Pop!)
Read on to discover the best London ornaments, from iconic double-decker buses to good ol’ Big Ben.

13. Santa on the Tube Glass Ornament
Not all London landmarks are visible to the naked eye. Some are cultural, like the unmistakable British sense of humor. This Santa on the Tube glass ornament features a Santa on top of London’s tube.
