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 an après ski escape without the airfare or a rooftop destination.
You don't need to wait for the weather forecast to know that Skylight Peckham has daily sprinkles of the stuff in store, as the covered rooftop venue's terrace will give you snow at 7pm every day this season (plus an extra shower at 2pm on weekends too). Sip your way through the candy cane-topped Nutcracker - a muddle of rum, Frangelico hazelnut liqueur, cranberry juice, apple juice, gomme, black walnut and foaming bitters - while you gaze at the display.
New to the scene this year? Humbug: The Immersive Christmas Dive Bar, where you can expect an adults-only grotto experience with a bad Santa and all his pals. Think interactive story telling, naughty cocktails and OTT decor - spanning everything from tinsel and tartan to Home Alone-themed murals and a shrine to Mariah Carey. But that's not all, since there's a flurry of snow as part of raucous performances too.
Wondering where to find snow in the UK? This Bloomsbury hotspot has got you covered...literally. Setting the scene with pine trees, falling flakes, 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 are dustings of snow every. single. day. in December - with a load of the white stuff falling on the hour, every hour between 12 and 9pm.
Miracle On Leake Street
The city's alternative festive event is back for 2024, 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 7th of December for this completely free event.
