I’ve been to London more times than I can count now and it’s always been a city I really enjoy. It’s one of those places that I know I like, but when I’m there, I always fall head over heels and wonder why I actually don’t visit more. So when we knew we wanted to go through the Highlands of Scotland for our November trip this year, I was excited to use London as our base at the beginning and end of the trip. And being the start of the Christmas and Winter seasons, I wanted to take in all I could of the British city for a perfect Winter weekend in London. There is so much to do in London and I’ve covered a lot of that in past posts you can find on the city here, but this time around all I wanted to do was wander and take in some of our favorite spots along with seeing some of the amazing Winter and Christmas festivities the city has to offer.
Some of my favorite London spots for a Winter Weekend:
- Hyde Park
- Borough Market
- Walking the South Bank of the Thames
- Cinnamon Rolls at Fabrique
- Watching people ice skate at the Natural History Museum
- A neighborhood walk through South Kensington
- Seeing the lights on Oxford Street
Headed to London?

The last time I went to London during winter was in 2011 or 2012. I truly believe its one of London’s best looks. Winter looks good on London.
So true! I definitely think London is one of the prettiest cities in Europe during the winter!
I’m sad I couldn’t make it to London this year, I was going to have a day and a half stop in London on my way back from Spain but the airline I booked my tickets with cancelled the flights so I had to re-do the itinerary 🙁 I spent more time in Spain and was able to visit Granada and Cordoba but really wanted to visit London. Hopefully in 2019! It would be nice to visit the city during the holidays.

YES to walking along Southbank! When I lived in London, this was my absolute favourite thing to do for a day regardless of the time of year. I’d start at Borough Market and walk all the way to Big Ben. Perfect day! Your list makes me itch to go back!
