Go To the Pub!
For me when things start to get colder it really is the best time to go to the pub, and one of my favourite events I look forward to every year is settling in a warm pub with a pint of Guinness watching the Six Nations, there’s always a great atmosphere in my local and everyone seems to come together with a shared passion, it’s a special time.
Go ice skating at Somerset House
Possibly London’s most beautiful outdoor ice rink set in the grounds of Somerset House. Go for a skate then sip a Baileys hot chocolate in the onsite skate lodge.
Get some Festive food at Borough Market
Borough Market is always worth a visit but its especially nice in the winter months, stock up on Christmas gifts of homemade chutneys and jams from Rubies in the Rubble , get some gingerbread at Cinnamon Tree bakery, and a hot sausage roll from Ginger Pig butchers.
Take a trip to the Theatre without breaking the bank
Yes going out to the westend can be expensive but sign up to a seat filling website like https://centraltickets.co.uk/ and you could be seeing a musical, standup comedy or concert from as little as £4.

1. Hyde Park Winter Wonderland
This is the biggest festive festival in the capital. You can skate, browse Christmas markets, see a circus performance and drink mulled wine, all in the same place. Although it does get busy It does get busy so if there’s something you really want to do its worth booking in advance
