The Trafalgar Square Christmas Tree might just be the most famous Christmas tree in the world, but London has plenty of other noteworthy arboreal festivities too, as these photos show. What's your favourite Christmas tree in London?

St Pancras station's Christmas tree is constructed from Disney stuffed toys. Get an idea of the full scale of the tree here. Photo: Matt Brown

The Christmas tree outside the Connaught Hotel in Mayfair (the first time the hotel has had an outdoor tree) appears to have some strange decorations on it... (Photo: Matt)

...and when you get closer you realise the baubles are designed to look like medicine. They were created by artist Damien Hirst. Photo: Matt

Also worth a mention this year is the Granary Square Christmas tree in King's Cross. It's made from 365 wooden sledges and is programmed with a lighting and sound sequence.

Seen any other trees in London worth mentioning? Let us know in the comments below.

I've walked past that Disney tree in St Pancras several times. It's a fucking abomination.

The one that's currently 'shining out above all' is the vaguely tree-shaped tip of The Shard. This is just one of its colours. https://www.flickr.com/photos/...

Your photo of the Old Vic is of 2011, not 2015.
