Things To Do In London In The New Year

As we head into the new year it's nice to have something to look forward too and luckily for us the capital city of London has it all going on with plenty to see and do for everyone, whatever your interests may be. And you have no excuse not to travel to London, because it is easily accessible by train from many places across the UK and there are plenty of hotels if you want to stay over and make a weekend of it.

Watch the Six Nations Rugby Live

What's better to kick off the new year than a bit of manly sport. Being a rugby fan myself I can't wait for the six nations to start on 1st February. England will be playing two home matches against Ireland and Wales plus three away matches versus France, Scotland and Italy. But instead of watching it on the tv you could be there in person watching all the action as it happens and have the best seat in the house, by booking Six Nations hospitality.

See a show at the theatre

London is the best place to see theatre in the world, with 230 theatres alone. From The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre. The Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty's Theatre. Wicked at the Apollo Victoria. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at The Palace Theatre. The options are endless so get yourself to the west end for a theatre experience like no other.

Harry Potter Studio Tour, London

Talking of Harry Potter if you're a big fan of the fantasy film series, you need to visit the Warner Bros. Studios Tour located just outside of London in Watford but easily accessible by train or car. Whilst visiting you are given the opportunity to step on to authentic sets, discover the magic behind the special effects and explore the behind-the-scenes secrets of the film series. Plus until 26th January they have a special Hogwarts in the Snow, Christmas themed installation.

Adventure Travel Show

If you love to travel then you must visit the Adventure Travel Show from 18-19 January at the Olympia London. A UK only travel event dedicated to discovering the hottest new destinations, gain top tips and advice from travel experts, uncover hidden travel gems, enhance your skills in photography, writing and film plus so much more.

Lightopia Festival London

Chiswick House and Gardens will be hosting Lightopia Festival from 22 January to the 1 March 2020. The festival is an exploration of light, movement and form, beautifully captivating the senses with unique interactive and immersive lights, lanterns, installations and incredible 3D mapping light show. The ticketed event (from £18) will also include live entertainment, such as acrobatic performances and there will also be a host of food and drink vendors. So you can make a real day out in London.

As an added extra thing to do in London, the award-winning Winter Lights Festival returns to Canary Wharf on 16-25th January and it's completely free.
