TOP THINGS TO DO IN LONDON THIS CHRISTMAS

Looking for things to do in London this Christmas? Whether you live in the city or visiting over the festive period there is so much going on!

BACKYARD CINEMA AT WINTERVILLE  

 

One of my favourite things to do at Christmas is watch Christmas movies! The backyard cinema is an immersive pop up cinema located at Winterville festival on Clapham Common. On arrival you pick one of four doors which will lead you through a magical maze to discover the cosy , enchanted forest cinema. You can snuggle up on beanbags with blankets and enjoy boozy hot chocolates and popcorn. They are screening all of the classics from Elf, Home Alone and The Holiday. It’s the ideal festive day out or date night.

Tickets are priced from £18.98

The igloos are back for another year! Set on the south bank with incredible views of Tower Bridge and The Shard, it’s the ultimate festive location. They even have a dedicated gin menu! Everyone went crazy for these last year and bookings are already sold out until January 2019, however they do accept walk ins if you’re willing to wait.

ICE SKATING – SOMERSET HOUSE / NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM 

There are always so many pop up outdoor ice skating rinks around London including Somerset House, Natural History Museum, Canary Wharf and Hampton Court Palace to name a few. There’s nothing better to get you in the festive spirit!

WINTER WONDERLAND 

I usually head to Winter Wonderland every year in Hyde Park and i absoloutley love it! It has a huge ice rink, fun fair, Christmas markets and loads of seasonal food & drink. It’s free entry however you have to pay for most things inside. It’s also best to book the activities in advance as its gets super busy especially on weekends. The Ice Kingdom is a must visit as well as the carousel bar!

Aviary is a rooftop bar located on the 10th floor of the Montcalm hotel. This year they have pop up igloos on the terrace with amazing views of the city skyline. This is definitely on my to-do list this Christmas.

BURTON MENSWEAR AW18

BURTON MENSWEAR AW18

 

It’s that time of year guys, when the temperature drops and we need to invest in some warmer clothing. I have picked out 4 different outfits from Burton for the AW season which I love and I think you guys will too.

My first look is all about layering up but I wanted to still keep this outfit smart-casual. The knitted camel crew neck sweater stood out to me straight away, the colour is great and is the main focal point of the outfit. The white shirt is a must in every mans wardrobe. It goes with everything and it makes the outfit a little smarter. If you know me, then you know how much I love the colour black, so the skinny jeans, boots and Jacket was an easy choice. I opted for black leather Chelsea boots because not only do they look smart, they are great for the colder days. I have always been a fan of bomber jackets and this one looks great with a curved hem detail and double zip.

My second layered outfit is more of a casual, everyday look. The grey tapered fit side striped jersey trousers have become one of my favourites. Stripes are everywhere this season and it gives the trousers a little more detail. White trainers with a plain crew neck T-shirt always looks good with these type of trousers (and of course the ankles have to be out ha!). The slim fit blazer is such a snug fit and very comfortable so you feel very relaxed when wearing this. The hoody just brings it all together, giving the outfit more of an edgy look.

We all need to invest in a few coats this time of year so here is my first outwear look. Again I am wearing the skinny black jeans with the black leather chelsea boots. This time I have added a roll neck and styled it with a camel overcoat. Roll necks are always in during the AW season and can make any outfit look smart. The camel faux wool chesterfield overcoat is a must have and the black roll neck goes so well with this coat. If you follow fashion like me you will see the camel overcoat everywhere on Instagram. It is definitely a key piece for the wardrobe.

My second outwear look is again wearing another chesterfield overcoat but this time in black (what other colour of course!). I had to have the coat in both colours. The black version can look very smart for work but also goes well in a more casual style. I am wearing the black skinny jeans again but this time I have changed the boots. They are still black leather boots but more of a military style boot. Then to layer up I have added the white crew neck T-shirt with the salt and pepper textured crew neck jumper. The jumper is great and gives the outfit a splash of colour. I also have a plain black scarf to keep the neck warm on those chilly days.
