'The Land of Make Believe' is this year's theme at Harrods, described as 'a contemporary take on tradition set against a Scandinavian landscape of silver birch trees, ice-blue skies and snowdrifts'.

John Lewis

It's all about penguins this year, tying in with John Lewis' highly-anticipated annual Christmas advert, which this year centres around the friendship between little boy Sam and his best friend Monty The Penguin. There's also Monty's Magical Winter Garden to discover at John Lewis, where fans can have their photo taken with Monty, visit his house, decorate a penguin biscuit and enjoy scrumptious hot chocolate.

Liberty London

For Christmas this year at Liberty, inspiration for the quintessentially British store's window display has been taken from the store itself. Liberty's founder, Sir Arthur Liberty, travelled the globe to bring unique products to Liberty and his journey is represented through the store's Christmas windows – bountiful ships, laden with gifts for all generations.

Fortnum & Mason

Fortnum & Mason has based this year’s Christmas window display on the magical ‘frost fayres’ – impromptu festivals held centuries ago when the Thames froze completely over. In the 200 years since the capital's last, the Thames has never frozen solid enough for the event to be repeated on the ice.
