If you've been given Apple Store gift cards for Christmas, or just want to start the new year with an upgrade to your iPhone, iPad, Mac or other Apple product, then you'll want to visit one of its stores. 

As Christmas can be an unusual time for opening hours, it's best to check whether your local outlet will be open when you get there. To help with this, we've put together a comprehensive list of the times you can expect to find the lights on at the UK Apple Stores. 

All times are the ones available and correct at the time of writing. To double-check you can ring the store itself. (Here's how to make an Apple Store appointment.) You'll find the details for each UK outlet on the official Apple retail store list.
