We're assuming that since you clicked on this site, you're also searching for a list of the top winter activities in London. We have the ultimate list for you, so keep reading!

Wintertime and Christmas in London offer stunning surprises at every turn and around every corner. Be mesmerised by the Christmas lights in Central London or get into the festive spirit with a crisp winter walk around Hyde Park, the possibilities are endless!

We're presenting both indoor and outdoor activities to suit any London weather, sunshine or rain! We've got a London winter itinerary packed full of exciting activities for the festive season!

Why visit London in winter?

Although London is stunning all year round, you should think about going in the winter when prices for hotels and flights are typically lower and there are fewer tourists. The theatres, winter bars, and museums in London always welcome you with warmth and cosiness, even in spite of the season's shorter days and colder weather.

London is particularly attractive (though not at all deserted) in the weeks preceding Christmas. German-style Christmas markets appear around the city in the middle of November all the way to Christmas Eve and Christmas lights illuminate the whole of Oxford Street. 

Although the Southbank Centre Winter Market, which is located between the London Eye and the Royal Festival Hall, is one of the largest, the Leicester Square market may be the most spectacular. 

Other significant markets are located in the heart of maritime Greenwich and in London Bridge City, which is situated on the southern bank of the Thames between London Bridge and Tower Bridge.

Foodie heaven at Borough Market

There are a tonne of food trucks, coffee shops, adorable small stores, and pubs in the Borough Market.

This is the ideal spot to grab a hot cup of coffee and enjoy the aromas of warming cuisine, mulled wine and sweets beneath the covered market if you're visiting London in the winter.

Wintertime at the Borough Market means plentiful produce and Christmas products including gifts, decorations, and wreaths.

Explore the Tower of London

In the Summer, this is among the most popular activities in London.

But you essentially get the whole Tower of London to yourself throughout the winter! You can wander about and take your time exploring one of the most well-known English landmarks at this time of year.

You can see the Crown Jewels, explore the armoury, and hear gruesome and gory historical tales in the Tower.

The staff are also dressed in yeomen, which are historically accurate attire for the Tower's workers or servants. If you like history, this is a winter excursion for you!

Ice Skating

If you're in London, you should definitely go ice skating at Somerset House or the Natural History Museum, even if you're not very good at it (you have to learn somehow, right?). 

The locations are luxuriously decorated and illuminated, resembling a scene out of a fairy tale! A must this winter!

Winter Wonderland

Though it may seem like a given, no guide to winter in London would be complete without mentioning Winter Wonderland, Hyde Park's enormous celebration of all things Christmas. When visiting the capital, carve out some time to enjoy this Christmas cracker in addition to the many other attractions like ice skating, the Christmas market, and a Ferris wheel. A really popular wintertime activity in London.

Kew Gardens

Kew Gardens will be beautifully illuminated to commemorate the festive season from November 15, 2024, to January 7, 2024. The 2023 Winter Trail features fresh, stunning installations along its enchanted course. 

You can enjoy the ideal after-dark experience by following the one-mile trail that meanders through the garden. The show will feature laser beams dancing over water, a tunnel of lights, and flickering flames throughout the garden.

London museums

There are tons of museums in London, and fortunately, most of the better ones are free! Highlights from the most inventive curators in the city include The British Museum, Natural History Museum, and Imperial War Museums. There's loads to learn and discover!


He's behind you! It's not a trip to London around the holidays if you don't go to the pantomime. Despite its reputation for more serious stage productions, London also hosts a number of pantomimes that include a number of well-known celebrities. 

You have lots of opportunities to laugh, with shows like Elf the Musical, A Christmas Carol, and The Snow Queen, among others. The shows will put you in the mood for the season!

Richmond Park

Take a stroll through Richmond Park, one of West London's most serene and picturesque locations, especially in the winter, to round up your laid-back afternoon. You can't avoid the celebrations entirely because the park is home to 630 deer! For the whole family, taking a wintry stroll in London during this festive season is highly recommended.

New Year's Eve fireworks

It's important to have some fantastic New Year's Eve preparations to keep your mind occupied and welcome the New Year with a grin on your face once Christmas is done and thoughts drift to the dreaded return to work. There's no better way to spend it than viewing one of the biggest fireworks shows of the year in London.
