Winter in London

November 16, 2021,
London at Park Lane, England

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! London is special at any time of year, but during the winter months it offers an extra special atmosphere with a host of festive attractions to offer something for everyone, creating unforgettable experience and memories.

Here are recommendations from the concierge team at Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane:

Skate through the season: A popular festive activity – nothing spreads festive cheer quite like outdoor ice-skating under the stars in London. This year sees the return of ice-skating at the historic Somerset House, and key London attraction Natural History Museum, with 2021 being its final year.

Feel festive at London’s Christmas markets: Throughout winter London is buzzing with an array of magical festive markets throughout the city, offering everything from warming spiced drinks to popular street food and unique souvenirs. Some favourites include South Bank Centre Christmas Market, iconic Borough Market – hosting special festive events throughout the season - and Selfridges Christmas Market, only a short distance from Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane

Dazzling lights on winter nights: From mid-November London lights up with the most spectacular Christmas lights and displays. Dazzling displays can be seen everywhere from well-known destinations such as Regent Street and Oxford Street, to creative festive windows displays at retail stores such as Harrods. Whether it’s taking a short stroll from the Hotel, or exploring the city by car at night, you are never too far from the perfect festive photo moment.

Christmas Retail Therapy: Synonymous with world-class brands and iconic style, London offers an endless amount of shopping and gifting opportunities. Head straight to big-name department stores or iconic shopping streets such as Bond Street to find numerous coveted designer pieces, or discover up-and-coming talent at smaller boutiques and unique finds at local markets. London is the ideal destination for Christmas gifting and treating yourself – a perfect memento for your time at Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane.

Walking in a Winter Wonderland: Every year, Winter Wonderland arrives to London and attracts everyone from families, groups of friends and couples, all wanting to soak up the magical festive atmosphere at the Hyde Park attraction. Here, you can find ice-skating, a Christmas circus, amusement rides and games, along rows of exciting food stalls.
