The first weekend of December is Dickens on the Strand. Although it's usually still in the 80s people dress up in Victorian clothes and the Strand goes back a century to celebrate Charles Dickens and the wonderful English era.
There is a list of things to do from the Queen's Parade to eating yummy food to shopping for Christmas gifts to elephant rides! It's definitely something to check out. There are even more costly parts of the experience and tours of the city offered. And I hope you like music because there are live concernts going on at all times on each street.
I would suggest parking in a park and ride lot and taking a bus over to the Strand rather than searching for a spot! The neighborhoods surrounding the event didn't look very safe...especially if you plan to stay after dark!
