Finding Christmas on Multimap

It’s not just Santa making an address list this Christmas; if you’d like to add a bit more festive spirit to your holiday, look no further than Multimap! The UK’s most popular online mapping site can help you to find Christmas all over the country.

Multimap founder Sean Phelan suggests that using Multimap can help would-be revellers to get into the Christmas spirit: “There are over 18 million people using the roads over the festive period, with people travelling all over the country visiting friends and family. Looking up somewhere fun to visit along the way could be just the thing to make a long journey a little bit different.”

Perhaps you’d like to get lucky on Mistletoe Hill in Luton? Or spot Rudolph in Reindeer Road, Tamworth. Or head to Guilford for a tasty treat in Christmas Pie Avenue. You could also visit Fairy Cross in Bideford, or Angel in London.

Other Multimap suggestions for a Christmas—themed trip include a visit to Snow Hill in Bath or Northampton’s Frosty Hollow.

So if you’re driving home for Christmas this year, why not log onto to find a festive destination.

Will Santa stop here first?

Maybe he’ll take Mrs Claus to Mistletoe Drive in Swadlincote
Could Santa cure his hunger at Turkey Street Station in London?
Will he pop to Stockings Lane in York before heading down to Presents Lane in Loughborough for some last minute shopping?
Or will Christmas Common in Oxfordshire lure him in?
Will Santa park his sleigh in Sled Lane, Richmond or cruise into Santa Pod Raceway in Bedfordshire?
