Famous for its sumptuous themes, discover stylish tree decorations, lights, furnishings, seasonal floristry, Christmas figures, ribbons, décor, delectable treats and gifts in eight enticing and inspiring panoramas.

Step into a fairy forest of lush nature tones and sparkling magic, let it snow in a cool, winter wonderland of crisp icicle whites and dazzling snowflake blues, or glow with grown-up glamour in luxurious tones of gold, champagne, silver and bronze.

Fancy something a bit different? Try the fluffy candyfloss pinks and glossy pistachio greens, reach for the stars amidst Strictly-inspired show-stopping glitter and tinsel, and conjure up all the fun of the fair in Christmas Carousel and Santa Sleigh Ride with lights, music and bow-bedecked presents.

Easing every step of your Christmas journey, direct from Santa’s workshop, comes the best in Christmas dining and decoration, from beautifully crafted Lemax villages to state-of-the-art app controlled fibre optic lights.
