Ever since I can remember my mum and my Nan would take me in to London to see the Christmas lights and the shop windows. From Hamley’s toy store down to Selfridges, normally followed by a visit to Santa’s Grotto in Selfridges itself. This year you can experience the spectacular new Showtime Selfridges Christmas Windows. A Festive and Glamorous Extravaganza which started on the 2nd of November 2023.
