Best Winter Day Trips From London

For the light-deprived

London isn’t the only place lit up with shimmering LEDs at this time of year. Swap Oxford Street’s baubles for a magical winter garden in West Sussex.

For frustrated commuters

Is there anything more magical than a train journey? Okay commuters, let’s rephrase that. Is there anything more magical than an old-fashioned steam locomotive.

For the fuzzy-headed

Whether you want to walk off the nut roast, exercise the dog or escape the family, at some point over the festive break you’ll need to leave the house.

For dedicated drinkers

Warming your toes by a proper fire is one of the best things to do in the chillier months, and nowhere does roaring blazes better than a country pub. 

For the always-peckish

Like a marathon runner building up to a race, prepare your body for the festive influx of food with a trip to Chapel Down in the Kent countryside.

For the bold and the brave

Stripping down to your swimmers might not seem like an obvious wintertime activity, but Thames Lido is a real delight, whatever the season.

For party planners

Hosting a festive shindig? Brush up on your cocktail-mixing skills at the Bombay Sapphire Distillery. 

For the digital-detoxers

Teeming with half-timbered medieval halls, cute cottages and pastel shopfronts, Rochester is one of Kent’s prettiest, greenest towns.

For night owls

Watching the light fade out of your office window hours before you leave for the day can make even the cheeriest of us feel a bit down. 

For crowd haters

When the crowds in central London get too much, ditch Zone 1 for a field in the middle of nowhere.
