As winter comes around we are all hoping for snowy picturesque scenes as we cosy up for the holidays but why not add a bit of excitement to December and book a trip to London where there are plenty of things on to enjoy winter to the full. Put yourself right in the centre of the action at The Washington Mayfair Hotel, enjoy Art Deco luxury in the most convenient of locations for a holiday in London to remember.
Don’t miss out on some special events planned just for winter like the city-wide pop-up ice rinks, transforming well known locations like The Natural History Museum, Canary Wharf and Hampton Court Palace. Book a place on the ice or have a drink with a view at one of the rink-side bars.
Seasonal Christmas markets are back and in full swing. Let yourself wander through the stalls sipping a hot chocolate a spiced latte or maybe even a mulled wine and sample a host of comforting street foods to warm you up from the inside. Conveniently, you can find these all in one place and local to The Washington at Hyde Parks Winter Wonderland which is open from 19th November to 3rd January. Ice skating, Christmas markets, a street food village and ice bar, not to mention traditional fairground rides and thrill zone for the brave among us, it really is a day out to remember.
Once you’ve had enough of the wintery scenes outside, how about enjoying them indoors by booking tickets to see The Nutcracker at the London Coliseum. Find yourself mesmerised by the spectacular performances of the English National Ballet as they perform to the well-loved Tchaikovsky score that is so synonymous with this time of year. Many London visitors make this sell out show a yearly tradition so make sure to book early so you don’t miss out. Booking from 16 December 2021 – 8 January 2022. For more winter show options, see the ultimate romantic comedy Love actually in concert with a live orchestra at the Eventim Apollo. Watch electrifying performances from skilled acrobats, trapeze artists and high-wire acts as they attempt jaw-dropping stunts and breath-taking feats, in Circus 1903 at the Royal Festival Hall. Or book tickets to see the magical Andrew Lloyd Webber classic of Cinderella at the Gillian Lynne Theatre.
