Top 5 Winter Attractions in London

  • by The Cavendish London

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.


Winter Wonderland

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.




Somerset House

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!


ZSL London Zoo

The London Zoo is the world's oldest scientific zoo and opened on the 27th April 1828. Nowadays, is the happy house of 16,802 scary, cute and, some of them friendly animals. This winter, the zoo will be performing the nativity scene of baby Jesus with the camels traveling with the Wise Men, and the stable animals. Performances start on the 1st of December until the 17th.
