London. In full swing this festive season.

Hopefully you now have your Christmas presents bought, you have ordered your food for your holiday season entertaining and you are ready for relaxation.

But, whether it be to stop the kids from getting cabin fever or to give those overseas guests a reason to leave the house, we thought we would give you a rundown on some of the best things going on in London over the festive period.

Even Your Homyze like to leave the house every now and then!

The Ice Rink at The Natural History Museum

Natural History Museum

As if ‘Hope’ as the replacement for ‘Dippy’ (that’s the blue whale skeleton that now hangs in place of the dinosaur one obviously!) was not enough entertainment for the kids at the Natural History Museum, at this time of year you can also make use of the ice rink set up in front of the building.

In what surely has to be one of the most scenic locations to get your skates on, the ice rink at the Natural History Museum in London provides a great outing for spectators and participants alike.

Kew Gardens

Kew GardensThere are only a few days left to enjoy the festive lights at Kew Gardens but there is never a bad time to go to Kew.

There are tours focusing on the wonders of winter-blooming flowers and exhibitions of artworks inspired by Egyptian garlands.

And if you missed getting tickets for the festive lights, don’t make the same mistake with the Orchids exhibition scheduled for February and March next year.

Winter Wonderland: Hyde Park, London

London's Winter Wonderland

The Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, London seems to get bigger every year. You can even see it as you come into land at Heathrow. And whilst, it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it does at least allow you a degree of escapism from London (but not always to somewhere like idyllic Lapland!).

Still, if you are looking for somewhere to eat German sausage and run the risk of revisiting them on an amusement ride, this is the place for you!

At Home

At Home with Homyze

We might be biased here at Homyze but we do think that being at Homyze is one of the best options during the festive season. We hope you feel the same, and if there is any way that we can help to make this the case, just let us know.

In any event, happy holidays from Your Homyze.
