Luxury London hotel visitors will be travelling to Trafalgar Square on December 6th 2012 to see the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony.

An iconic event attended by officials and dignitaries from the UK and abroad, the ceremony will see a Norwegian spruce that stands over 20 ft tall lit up with spectacular lights, thus forming the centrepiece for London's festive celebrations.

The people of Norway have provided a Christmas tree to London each year since 1947 as thanks for the support provided by the British during World War II, with the trees in question carefully selected months or years in advance.

Once lit, the tree will act as a backdrop for a full programme of carol-singing concerts that will take place from December 11th to 22nd.

Those wishing to enjoy the sights and sounds of Christmas in the capital can book a Magical London package at The Chesterfield Mayfair Hotel.

Among the seasonal perks included are a Christmas-themed afternoon tea and a festive turndown, plus a glass of mulled wine or mug of hot chocolate on arrival.
