Disney Junior Xmas Tree St Pancras – no doubt one of the more popular London trees. The split level galleries m,eant one could inspect the tree quite close up whether at base or on the upper levels. The total height was 14 metres. It is said the tree spewed snowflakes from its top every four minutes – on the several occasions of visiting it I never saw this happen 🙁

The Disney tree used 2000 soft toys which were subsequently distributed to a disabled children’s charity.
