London is a great city to visit if you are looking to beat the winter blues and book a winter break. January and February in particular can be slow months, once the excitement of Christmas and New Year is out of the way and a winter break can be the perfect remedy to break the monotony up.
There are always lots to see and do in London, and the colder season is no exception. You will find some fantastic festive attractions throughout the capital from amazing ice skating rinks in places such as at the Tower of London and Alexandra’s Palace to tucked away corner cafes where you can indulge in a delicious warming hot chocolate; you will find many things and more to entertain you on your winter break.
Even if the weather turns bad, there are still plenty of places you can visit. Take in the sights at one of London’s famous museums such as the Natural History Museum or visit one of the many art galleries. For families there are attractions such as the Sea Life London Aquarium and the Science Museum. If you get there in time you could even visit the Reindeers at the ZSL London Zoo. Once they’ve finished helping Santa deliver his presents, of course.
If you do choose to book a winter break in London, there are plenty of cheap hotels in London. Why not pick a hotel located close to some of the main transport routes to make getting out and around easy and simple? Picking a hotel near Paddington for example will mean you are well placed to navigate around London quickly and easily, with minimum time spent wandering around in the cold winter air.
Of course, choosing to see London by foot could mean you make some great discoveries, which you might otherwise have missed London is a bustling and buzzing city, and there are many hidden gems which are often missed out of the guide books. You might just stumble across one on your way around and what could be more romantic than that? Just make sure you invest in a decent map!
