4. A West End Show

One of the best winter activities in London is to go to a West End show. 

If there’s something that London isn’t short of, it’s theatre performances and shows, and when the nights begin to draw in a warm show is all the more inviting. 

There are numerous sites you can visit to find out what West End shows are on during your visit to London, such as Time Out or West End Shows to allow you to plan accordingly.

Whatever your preference, you’re bound to find a memorable show in London this winter. 

5. Cream Tea At Harrods 

What better way to escape the cold in winter than in London’s most iconic department store? 

Cream tea is a British classic, and nowhere does one quite like Harrods.

Not only will you tick off a famous sightseeing spot in the glorious Harrods department store, but you’ll also get to experience two hours of drinking tea and eating scones with plenty of clotted cream and homemade preserves. Delicious.

If you really wanted to spoil yourself, you could even upgrade to have afternoon tea at The Harrods Tea Rooms
