Whether you live in the city and are wondering what activities you can do post-lockdown, or you’re heading to the capital to spend the festive season in your Christmas bubble, there’s plenty of fun experiences to enjoy. Here, we explore five things you can do in London this festive season.
- Experience the London Eye
The London Eye is open again from 2nd December for visitors to enjoy during the festive season. As you head up in one of the iconic capsules, you can enjoy a bird’s eye view of the city stretching for miles in every direction. There are plenty of fantastic London Eye offers to take advantage of, giving you excellent savings on the cost of tickets.
- Enjoy a fine dining experience
Restaurants across the capital will be welcoming back customers with open arms post-lockdown and will need your business more than ever. So why not head out for an enjoyable evening of fine dining with those you live with? There are plenty of fantastic Michelin star restaurants specialising in different cuisines, including British, Japanese, Portuguese and more!
- Take a walk in the parks
If you’re looking for outdoor activities to enjoy with your loved ones, then why not take a crisp stroll this festive season. With so many beautiful parks and gardens in the city, you really are spoilt for choice. Head to Regent’s Park to explore the beautiful Japanese Garden Island, go to Hyde Park to see the Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain, or St James’ Park to visit the famous Buckingham Palace.
- Explore the museums
Many of the iconic London museums are open after lockdown – and are a great place to spend a winter afternoon. If you need activities to do with the kids, head to the Natural History Museum where you can learn about dinosaurs, space, nature’s giants and more! Or, if you’re heading out with your partner, the V&A museum is packed full of amazing exhibits, including iconic fashion, art and paintings.
- Visit the famous landmarks
Want to venture out the house, but stay outdoors? Then you could plan a walking tour of the city to see some of the most famous landmarks. Whether you want to marvel at Big Ben, see the Houses of Parliament, explore the Tower of London or otherwise, you can do it all on foot. As some of the landmarks are far apart, it’s worth jotting down where you’d like to go beforehand and plotting a route to follow.
