Go to the Natural History Museum
Cromwell Road, London
There are a number of museums and galleries in London that provide a look into the history of art and culture but if you only have time to visit one, the Natural History Museum is the place to be this winter. It can get quite busy so you may still need a coat and scarf for queueing but once you step inside you’ll discover a world of wonder and history. Say hello to the dinosaurs and learn how the planet has evolved over millions of years. This is a wonderful activity for the family if you’re staying at The Piccadilly London West End with the kids.
Visit a West End show
The famous theatre district in London draws in millions of entertainment seekers every year thanks to the amazing venues and world-class performances. With daily shows taking place on stages across West End, you’ll be spoilt for choice if you’re looking for a fun night out. There are musicals, comedies, ballets and dramatic performances taking place daily which means that there’s something for everyone. With Christmas just around the corner, the stages of the West End will be gearing up for some of the best performances of the year, making now an excellent time to take in a show.
Brompton Road, London
With Christmas fast approaching, you may be looking to do a bit of shopping during your trip to London. If you’re looking for luxury and variety, there’s no better place to go than the famous Harrods department store in Knightsbridge. With multiple floors packed full of high-end brands and luxury boutiques, you won’t struggle to find the perfect gift for friends and family. A peruse through Harrods is a great way to have fun while escaping the cold weather.
Pit your waits against an escape room
The escape room trend has taken over London in recent years and there are now more places than ever to put your skills to the test and try out your escapology skills. The aim of the game is to solve clues and follow hints in order to make your way out of the room by working together with your teammates. There are plenty of experiences to choose from in London including an underground war-themed challenge and a sci-fi escape experience. This is a great way to spend the day with friends in London and is a perfect alternative to outdoor activities.
