  • Visitor Information

QueensKitsch, colourful, cute and cuddly, this glitzy gift grotto in Spitalfields is irresistible. Wander around its magical wonderland and make friends with flirting fairies, kissing fish, perky-eyed reindeer and nut-cracker busting squirrels. Christmas time is when Queens really comes alive with the sights, sounds and smells of the season, so head to Queens and indulge in some old-fashioned gaudy glamour. Warning: avoid if alergic to glitter.
