Want a widescreen look at London in all its Christmas finery? High up in The Shard, the five-star Shangri-La Hotel offers fine festive dining with a view. The Ren handles full-blown banquets, while Yi and Li are smart spaces for smaller events. If you want a taste of the convivial atmosphere in the hotel’s Ting restaurant, head for its Chef’s Market Table. All menus are created using seasonal British produce from nearby Borough Market.
