If you are visiting London this winter why not check out some of the seasonal activities that the city has to offer. As well as the traditional sights to see, London is famous for putting on some of the best winter activities at pop up locations around the city. Here are a few of our favourite places to go this winter :
Somerset House Ice rink
Traditionally known as London’s most beautiful outdoor ice rink, the skating at Somerset House is not to be missed. With a range of classes available for beginners and club classic nights for those who want to party on ice, there is something for everyone at Somerset House.

Hyde Park WinterWonderland
This event runs from 22nd November through to 4th January and is an amazing sight to see. Although the WinterWonderland itself is free to visit, most of the attractions there need to be paid for but it is still a great place to walk around and soak up the atmosphere. Here you will find a wintery themed circus, ice skating rinks, fairground rides, an ice bar and many places to shop.
