The big day will be here before you can say 'Christmas shopping'. But instead of dealing with the stress of Oxford Street, make your way to Westfield — the perfect place to shop, eat and get into the festive spirit.
Take the kids to meet the man himself at Santa's Grotto — there will be one at both Westfield White City and Stratford. There's fun for adults too; Beyond the Waterfall: A Cocktail Odyssey is a grown-up, drink-filled fairy tale experience to get you in the Christmas mood.
Picking the perfect gift is tiring work — take a moment to sit down and indulge in a festive mince pie before sampling a Baileys at the Christmas pop-up bar (19-24 December). Why not take advantage of the wrapping services at Westfield Stratford? Choose from a selection of papers, tags and ribbons to beautify your wares, with all proceeds going to Richard House Children's Hospice.
If you're feeling energetic, make for the ice rink to show off your skating prowess. If you book for Sunday 11 or 18 December, you'll even get a complimentary post-skating brunch courtesy of Coach. If you fancy something a little more sedate, sit back and relax to carols at Westfield Stratford's bandstand.
With Christmas menus and festive drinks at most of Westfield's restaurants, finish up your day of shopping and festivities with a mouth-watering meal. Indulge in seasonal specials at Bill's — how does venison and chestnut pudding followed by a festive hot chocolate sound?
If you thought that Westfield just meant shopping, think again. It's a festive day out sure to get everyone shaking their tinsel and belting out Christmas songs. Westfield is where it's at this December.
