London is always an exciting place to be, but it’s even more exciting come Autumn and Winter time! Here is a short list of things to do in London in the Autumn and Winter!
Watch the Six Nations
With England’s astonishing win this past weekend, you can watch the Rugby World Cup finalists in the upcoming Six Nations Tournament in 2020. There are plenty of pubs in London to watch the game and other sport fixtures, like The Richmond which is over 100 years old or the The Thirsty Bear which has beer taps at the tables so you can pour your own beer and food and other drinks can be ordered via an iPad – so you’ll never have to miss a second watching the Six Nations Tournament early next year!
Go to a firework display
This weekend, there will be hundreds of firework displays happening up and down the country. London has some of the very best firework displays in the country, including Alexandra Palace, Victoria Park and Battersea Park. Firework displays are a great way to spend an evening; in many cases there are funfairs, fast-food stands and pop-up bars. There are plenty of firework displays and bonfire night events happening across London so make sure to get involved!

Go for a traditional roast dinner
May seem like an obscure one but hear me out – isn’t Autumn/Winter time the perfect season to eat warming, home comfort food? I’m talking big bowls of stew and dumplings, casseroles and hearty soups? There’s nothing nicer than having a full on roast dinner in a cosy place. There are hundreds of restaurants in London that serve up roast dinner, but the ones that I have constantly saved on my Instagram are The Pig and Butcher in Islington and Hubbard & Bell at The Hoxton. Anywhere that serves big fluffy yorkshire puddings and crispy roast potatoes is a big YES from me!
Christmas lights around the city
London comes alive with Christmas spirit as soon as the Christmas lights are turned on! There are so many different Christmas light displays to check out, including Oxford Street, Covent Garden, Carnaby Street, Regent Street and South Bank. If you’re looking for something to get you into the Christmassy spirit – this will certainly do the trick!

Only the best place on Earth!! Winter Wonderland opens its doors on the 21st November to the 5th January. You can expect to see Christmas markets, fun fair rides, beer tents, circus shows and an ice rink here, all nestled into Hyde Park in London. It’s a great day out for everyone and it can really help you to get into the Christmas spirit. I’d recommend visiting Winter Wonderland early – as the closer to Christmas it gets, the busier it will be.
So that’s my short list of things to do in London in the Autumn and Winter.
