If there's one thing that we love, it's a gorgeous photo-friendly pop-up. From urban beaches in summer to pumpkin patches come autumn, we're proving that you don't need to leave London for your seasonal fix. And now that winter is well and truly in our sights? We're bringing you all the best places to see snow in London - whether that's a festive woodland forest or après ski escape without the airfare.
Snow-capped trees, private chalets and Instagrammable scenes? Pergola Paddington is set to take London by storm this winter. Setting up shop at the buzzy West London outpost, the alpine pop-up is promising hot toddies, oozy camembert and twinkling lights all to the sound of live DJs and Oompah bands.
Wondering where to find snow in the UK? This Bloomsbury hotspot has got you covered...literally. Setting the scene with pine trees, falling snow, Christmas lights and festive gear, The Montague on the Gardens Ski Lodge is the perfect place for a fun time in the West End. Ideal for big group events, book your ski pass and tuck into alpine treats.
From tourists to Instagrammers and all the Londoners in between, Covent Garden is attracting a flurry of festive activity this winter. The Central London hotspot has once again been decked out with giant trees, gorgeous mistletoe installations and over 100,000 stunning lights. As if that wasn't enough, there's also set to be a mulled wine festival, a Dolce & Gabbana pop-up, and dustings of snow every. single. day. in December.
Between quirky cocktails and kitsch decor, Miracle at Henrietta is the winter pop-up that you need to check out. Back at the Covent Garden hotel for another year of cute sips, the US import is welcoming you with tequila-soaked creations, an elderflower-tipped Christmapolitan and the Yippie Ki Yay Mother F****r which blends four different kinds of rum with pumpkin-almond orgeat, lime and Angostura.
Miracle On Leake Street
The city's alternative festive event is back for 2022, with the quirky graffiti tunnel hosting all sorts of fun. Not only can you expect a Christmas street party and cabaret performances, but also faux snow, wreath-making and food from the area's top market traders. Get down to Leake Street on the 15th of December for this completely free event.
The Mitre, Hampton Court
Situated on the banks of the River Thames, The Mitre is a gorgeous Grade II-listed hotel that's ideal all year round. This season, their riverside terrace is transformed into an après ski haven via skis, sleds, frosted trees and a cable car for all those Instagram moments. A partnership with The King’s Ginger liqueur, the pop-up offers hot chocolates and warming cocktails as the temperature drops.
