One of my favourite places to slide over on the ice in London has to be Skate at Somerset House. Although there’s plenty of choice from the equally stunning Natural History Museum, or even Winter Wonderland- the grandeur of Somerset House, with it’s beautiful open festive courtyard and it’s central location always have me at hello. On top of that, with the rink being with Fortnum and Mason- there’s plenty of delicious food to feast on (all the hot chocolate) and a Christmas Arcade too. What. A. Dream.

I’ve mentioned Sketch plenty of times on this blog (including a big old feature in my afternoon tea guide)- but over the festive period Sketch are sprucing things up a little, and taking Christmas to the next level. If afternoon tea isn’t treat enough, throw in some carol singers (which legit make you feel like you’re in a scene in Love Actually), some delicious additions to an exclusive Christmas menu and some decorations to boot. It’s definitely a treat (and would make a perfect Christmas gift as it’s available until the 31st), so book now if you fancy something very special this season! Alternatively, Mandarin Oriental, Lanes of London and The Orangery also have great festive teas!
