There is always something to do in London at Winter time, so we have come up with the top 5 most popular attractions to help you get into the Christmas spirit make the most of the festive season
Natural History Museum
Besides the permanent collection
of amazing objects from the world's natural history, the museum has plenty of
other activities during the winter. The most well-known seasonal feature is the
amazing 950-square metre
ice skating rink just
outside the museum, with a bar serving hot chocolate, mulled wine and tasty
snacks. The ice rink is open from the 30th of October to the 4th of January 2015. Indoors, you will find the amazing Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition,
which features wildlife pictures from established and up-and-coming
photographers, well worth a look.
You won't be disappointed after visiting the largest Christmas Fair and Market
in London. The choice of food, drink and entertainment is almost overwhelming,
but the whole market is very carefully planned, and it doesn't feel too
crowded, even at times of high attendance. Fair games, rides and more make it a
perfect destination for the whole family. It is free to enter, and will be located in Hyde Park from the 21st of November until the 4th of January 2015.
Covent Garden Market
Covent Garden gets very festive this Christmas Season! The Cavendish London is
just a few minutes' walk from this enclave of traditional Christmas spirit in
Central London. There is always a huge Christmas Tree, beautiful lights and baulbs. Children can pet real live reindeer on Saturdays before Christmas.
The uber-pretty and well-located art gallery gets very wintery (and busy) this
time of the year. Besides the fabulous pieces of art on display, the main
feature this season is the amazing ice skating rink, with it's own bar for drinks
and snacks. It has been described as the most glamorous ice rink in London... and who are we to disagree! The ice rink opens on the 11th of November and closes on the 11th of January, 2 months of fun!

April 1828. Nowadays, is the happy house of 16,802 scary, cute and, some of
