The inevitable has happened, autumn is in full swing and winter is on its way. The remaining sun allows brief respite from the biting cold that will soon consume our lives, so get your big coats, woolly scarves and boots at the ready. Here in London, there are plenty of events and attractions to distract away from the weather, and what’s more, we’ve compiled a list of the best of them for you.
This London in winter staple is back, and the fun for all the family, regardless of age, starts on November 20th and runs right through until January. With a circus, ice rink, magical ice kingdom and an ice bar for those more inclined, there’s not a dull moment to be had in this winter utopia.
If you prefer to avoid the masses but fancy a bit of outdoor skating, then there are pop up ice rinks a plenty across London for you to enjoy. Whether you’re a novice or exhibit skating prowess, this is the closest you will get to skating on a lake safely in the UK. The U.S.A always did have that one over us.
Take in some culture when Christmas shopping and enjoy the delights that Europe and the rest of the world have to offer with the many continental markets that pop up throughout winter in London, and the rest of the UK.
Even on Christmas Day, a trip to Hyde Park can’t be missed when the Peter Pan Cup exists. Swimmers brave the Serpentine lake with crazily cold temperatures.
An exhibition of lights designed to interpret the wind will be displayed across Canary Wharf Middle Dock for a truly astounding visual presentation.
It goes without saying that those of you needing a serial killer fix won’t go without this winter, either. Our Jack the Ripper tour will take place every day except Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve – so there is more than enough chance to take in the murder sites that bait your curiosity.
Discuss the Jack the Ripper suspects over a mug of mulled wine and enjoy the full spectrum of London this winter. Book your tickets now to avoid disappointment, we get busy over the winter period!
