January’s Super Seven things to do in London

Welcoming in 2017, we thought we’d inspire you this month with 7 things to do outside to get those endorphins moving after the Christmas & New Year holiday. We can wish for crisp cold days, but put a date in your diary to do at least one of these things, and see if you feel all the better for it.

So our message this month, is to get out, get active and discover somewhere new in London. There are always the extras for those who aren’t so keen! We wish you all a very Happy New Year.

– Kids: New Years Day Parade through Central London.

– Discover the walk along Regents Canal. Designed by John Nash, now you can walk from Little Venice to Camden for a 5k walk. Take in this hidden area of London, and discover one of the many pubs along the route!

Chinese New Year 29 January: Year of the Rooster. This is a huge amount of fun for kids, but it is very busy, so go early and pick a spot to watch all the action, and be sure to book somewhere to eat. I’d nearly advise not to eat Chinese, and escape to somewhere quieter!

Burns Nights 25 January : Cutty Sark was named in the Robert Burns poem Tam o’ Shanter, so they have an evening of celebration and dancing in Greenwich on 21 January. Tickets & kilts required.

– Snow drop days at Chelsea Physic Garden 28 January : This is such a delightful trail, every year I’m amazed at how many varieties there are, and they also have the most wonderful restaurant.

Look Up London. Read our blog post on Katie’s Alternative Christmas shopping walk. But discover her other walks, Southwark’s Saucy Secrets, or maybe it’s a West End Wonder. Either way, well worth doing. she is a mind of information.

Magic Lantern Festival at Chiswick House: Explore the Silk Trail. In its second year, this festival delighted all ages last year, and is sure to again this year, tying in with Chinese New Year expect big roosters..!!


Movie buffs: Short Film Festival
Art Exhibition: Robert Rauschenburg at Tate Modern, and don’t forget the Elton John collection of vintage prints.
Crafts : Kipling Exhibition at V&A
