What makes Greenwich Winter Time unique and distinctive from all the other events in the London Christmas calendar this year?
Why choose Greenwich Winter Time Festival? Well imagine standing in the middle of our event and with a simple 360 degree turn you can travel from the stunning 17th Century architecture of the Old Royal Naval College, to the 19th Century Cutty Sark onto the breath-taking views of the Thames and the bright lights of modern day London with the City in the distance. We then add all the best traditions of the season packed full with contemporary twists and you have the perfect Christmas destination.
The team behind Greenwich Winter Time have created an event that will run throughout December with up to three 3 hour sessions per day, with a limited capacity per session that guarantees a safer, less over crowded more intimate, warm, fun, inclusive environment for all ages. Mixing old traditions with the new the festival aims to push the boundaries by creating an exceptional and affordable experience for all.
