It’s the 1 December and the season to be jolly is officially upon us. And if the inner-child in you fancies bringing some Narnia magic to your home this Christmas, but you’re not sure you’ve got the decorative know-how, look to McQueens and The Grove Hotel in Hertfordshire for festive inspiration.

The renowned florist has teamed up with the luxury hotel – where past guests have included Kylie and Ralph Fiennes – to create a winter wonderland complete with snow, sparkly pine trees and Lucy’s lamppost.  

From the 23 December to the 3 January, there will also be a range of festive activities on offer at the hotel: a Mr Tumnus tea party, Prince Caspian’s quiz and games in the hotel’s beautiful walled garden.
