The Capital city is gearing up for festivals and events targeted at holiday makers from all over the world this December, but if you are looking for things to do this weekend, don’t worry, we have got you covered.
Ice skating at Covent Garden
Covent Garden is always one of the liveliest and festive locations in London around this time of the year.

The space is beautiful with a lot of Christmas light displays which provide the best backdrop for festive photos. The ice skating rink pops up every year around this time, so you do not want to miss out.
Visit the gorgeous Kew Gardens
This is a popular spot for many London locals and visitors. The garden is an amazing collection of more than 30,000 living plants – the world’s largest collection of living plants. Well, arranged into landscapes and climates from around the world, the Kew Garden is not just a beautiful haven of plants to marvel at, but also a perfect place to learn about plants from around the world.

Check out the London Illustration Fair
Art lovers should go to the London Illustration Fair and see the amazing collection of artworks and prints from top designers and artists.

Go mini golfing in Shoreditch
Another fun thing that you should consider doing this weekend is visiting Plonk Golf’s Shoreditch venue. You don’t have to be a pro golfer to enjoy the mini course; all you need to do is get the ball past the series of obstacles and ramps. The Shoreditch venue is located in one of the busiest areas of the Capital – just a few minutes from the station and opposite to Box Park. This is an only BYOB mini golf course. The venue features an amazing design theme that screams “exciting!” the moment you walk through the paint covered door.
Planning a romantic weekend with your significant other? Then you should consider taking them on a festive horse-drawn carriage ride through Richmond Park. There is hardly a better way to see the beautiful Royal Park. You will get the opportunity to have a look at the working stables at Richmond Park.
