Last Christmas filming focuses around central London with the Yuletide shop exterior facade having been created in a path in Covent Garden Market and various other scenes being filmed nearby such as the places Tom takes Kate including the narrowest alley. The iconic Alexandra Palace ice rink is also used and the lesser known Pheonix Garden is converted to a winter garden (just a short walk from Leicester Square). Scenes are also filmed around the Isle of Dogs, Regent Street and Albert Bridge.
Kate is a young woman subscribed to bad decisions. Her last date with disaster? That of having accepted to work as Santa's elf for a department store. However, she meets Tom there. Her life takes a new turn. For Kate, it seems too good to be true.
