In partnership with Coca-Cola.
Coca Cola’s big red lorry is the ultimate iconic Christmas symbol.
As soon as you hear the harmonised whisper of ‘holidays are coming’, it’s difficult to resist getting caught up in the festive fun.
The brand’s red and white colouring lends itself so well to Christmas-time and some lucky people got to spend the night inside of it, soaking up the holiday atmosphere.
Here’s a video of the inside…

It was truly the dream winter sleepover. Guests stayed in an adorably cosy twin bedroom – decked with a dazzling 8,772 fairy lights, a gorgeous Christmas tree and picturesque fireplace complete the winter hideaway backdrop.
The blissful evening involved a scrumptious Christmas dinner – all washed down, of course, with all the home grown Coca-Cola you could want.
Guests, fully loaded with food, then flopped into the red (of course) bean bags, in front of a selection of Christmas films before sleeping in the sweet, reindeer-patterned beds. Once fully rested, they woke up to bulging stockings full of presents.
They thought about every finishing touch, branded with their logo of course.
This all sounds fairytale-ish enough, but that isn’t all. Guests were then treated to a wonderful Christmas breakfast and London Eye tickets. What an experience.
The lucky winner was picked after thousands of people entered the LateRooms.com competition and explained why they were the ultimate fan of Christmas.
They were looking for the kind of mavericks who get the tinsel out in June, jump up and down at the mere mention of Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas, and have a strict diet of hot chocolate and mince pies.

The only way this evening could have gotten more magical is if Father Christmas himself stopped by to share a sherry and a cracker joke.
The iconic red truck was making its way around the UK last week, with the special stay taking place last Friday in a secret location in London.
Coca Cola has also been pushing a big recycling campaign, encouraging their customers to dispose of their cans in an environmentally friendly way.

The company has a plan to reduce the amount of material in their packaging by 25% by 2020, from where they started in 2007.
Sadly the truck’s tour is over, so you’ll have to wait until next year if you didn’t catch it. The Coca Cola team have made 397 stops since 2011 and it has travelled more than 730,000 miles – the equivalent to 29 times around the world!
