This year, the Starling follows a journey of a traveler who hopped onto a double decker bus and is transported back in time to London in the 1900s to let you have a truly magical Christmas in a nostalgic time period.

From the iconic red double decker bus to signature London icons like the red telephone booth and pillar mailbox, there are so many opportunities for you to snap a festive photo with the family. All these will evoke the magic and warmth of a true vintage London Christmas.
