With top class museums, galleries, pubs and restaurants, London is a city very much geared up for the colder weather. So if you’re wondering what to do during winter, and indeed Christmas, in the capital, here’s a helpful guide to some of the best places to go. In no particular order, here’s our top things to do in London in the winter!…
Hyde Park Winter Wonderland
The biggest festive festival in the capital is high on most people’s winter hitlists. You can skate, browse Christmas markets, see a circus performance and drink mulled wine, all in the same place. It does get busy (especially the ice rink) so if there’s something you really want to do, book tickets in advance.
…Drop into the Geoffrye Museum…
This free Shoreditch museum is a great place to discover how Christmas was celebrated in the past. Go and have a peak into authentically decorated living rooms, stretching back 400 years.
Go ice skating at Somerset House…
London’s festive season only really gets going when Somerset House’s iconic ice rink opens for another year. Put on in partnership with Fortnum and Mason, the rink offers skating in beautiful surroundings, and weekend club nights, with big names taking to the decks as you try and stay upright.
…See public art transformed
Henry Moore Arch in snow at Kensington Gardens
The Royal Parks have a host of public art in their grounds that make good backdrops for some arty shots (particularly good if you’ve got a new camera at Christmas). Capture some moody black and white shots of Henry Moore’s The Arch or get instagramming at The Joy of Life fountain in Hyde Park.
Whatever you decide to do, we hope you have fun!
