This festive season, Melrose Arch is bringing the magic back! The famous Christmas lights are on until 10 January and they&rsquo;re just as spectacular as ever. Visit Melrose Arch, walk through the streets and retail Galleria and admire the dazzling display. Baubles, fairies, a giant teddy bear, stars, reindeer, toys, gifts and more &ndash; everything children love and associate with Christmas is up in lights. There&rsquo;ll also be sweets, treats and delicious food sold on the Square from 3 December, including Swirl ice cream, Sweets from Heaven, Senhor Peri Peri and Hello Tomato, as well as toys and games from Greenbusters. Melrose Arch is renowned for its restaurants so dinner with the family is also a great option.<br /><br />If you&rsquo;re looking for an unusual gift or something to brighten your home this festive season, look no further than Melrose Arch&rsquo;s annual Christmas market. The Christmas market will be held on Melrose Boulevard from Wednesday, 2 December to Saturday, 5 December, from 3pm to 9pm.
