With Christmas on the horizon, many of London’s top hotels and restaurants are unveiling their much-anticipated Christmas Trees. From traditional twinkling Fir’s to awe-inspiring, abstract installations, we’ve rounded up our favourite of 2019.
Designed by fashion house Ralph and Russo, The Lanesborough's Christmas Tree for 2019 is a striking golden canopy adorned with silk petals and crystals. Though not a Christmas tree in the traditional sense, this stunning installation is every bit as spectacular.

The London Edition's tree is titled 'A Christmas Dream' and was designed in collaboration with artist Luke Edward Hall. Inspired by classic stories and fictional lands this colourfully decorated tree exudes eccentricity and perfectly captures the joy of Christmas.

The Connaught's nine-meter Norwegian Spruce, stood proudly in the centre of Carlos Place, is the work of artist Sean Scully. Characteristic of his style, 25,000 light bulbs form four blocks of striking colour, creating a dramatic artistic vision.

In collaboration with Scottish fashion designer Holly Fulton, Aqua Shard's Christmas Tree titled 'DecoDance' is inspired by the glamour of the 1920's. Breaking away from tradition, this whimsical collection of dancing ladies are positioned on beautifully wrapped gifts at the base of this 6-meter abstract tree.
