As the nights draw in and London is lit up with Christmas cheer at every corner, we thought we’d write a guide to the best places to have fun this Christmas in London. So dust off those Santa hats, squeeze into those 2009 Topman Xmas jumpers and hit the town with your band of merry elves!
Once Upon a Wigwam at Queen of Hoxton
“Wait a minute,” I hear you say. “Wigwams don’t sound very Christmassy.”
Well this one is. It’s on The Queen of Hoxton’s fabulous rooftop event space and you can find a whole host of merry things to make and eat. From wreath-making classes to ‘Egg Snog’ cocktails, plus the wonderland themes of the Brothers Grimm, Once Upon a Wigwam mixes the wonder of Christmas with fairy-tale fun.
Drink. Shop. Do., King’s Cross
The famous multi-tasking entertainers of King’s Cross are putting on an impressive array of Christmas events, including Christmas jumper knitting classes and Christmas card-making sessions. Of course, drinks will be served throughout, so try and be done with the scissors before your third sloe gin.
Winterville, Victoria Park
God, isn’t Winter Wonderland awful. Luckily, there is hope for Christmas in London this year. Winterville offers an alternative to Hyde Park’s tourist-trap/winter gulag. Here you can find comedy, cabaret and clubnights in the famous Spiegeltent, an ice rink, crazy golf and all the fun of the (adult alternative) fairground. Expect lots of booze and fun.
Ice Skating at Canary Wharf
Canary Wharf looks beautiful from the DLR. It’s almost possible to forget that all the high rise offices are filled with people responsible for everything wrong with the world since 2008. But let’s not talk about that.
At the foot of this economic powerhouse you can find a quality ice rink with a stunning, modern metropolis atmosphere. It may not be ice skating on the Thames, but Pepys would still be proud.
Christmas Dinner at Porky’s BBQ
That’s right! You can book Christmas dinner at Porky’s this year and enjoy a three course Christmas dinner for £26pp. Come along to any of our four London locations for a wonderful Christmas in London, available in BOXPARK Shoreditch, Bankside, Camden or Crouch End.
