With fur throws throughout and adorned with tartan blankets and cushions for winter, the Churchill’s Terrace and Bar at the Hyatt Churchill hotel is transformed into a snowy, silver branch filled winter wonderland.
The original themed garden terrace in London, the Dalloway Winter Terrace is something of an instagram legend. Get cosy amidst silver poinsettia filled flower walls and fur rugs galore, did somebody say Narnia? Open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner it’s THE place to get that festive feeling (pictured above and below).
One area of London which goes ‘all out festive’ is around the Bond St and Mayfair where the shops, bars and hotels seem to compete for the most festive and fabulous Xmas fronts and windows.
From Tiffany’s to Louis Vuitton, to the Regent Street lights, this xmas my favourite places which have pulled out all the stops are Annabel’s (above), with their magnificent Xmas tree facade and Sketch (below), who’ve transformed the venue into a ode to the nutcracker suite. Don’t forget to check out the famous gift wrapped pod style toilets! They’re amazing!
Straight off the pages of Hans Christian Anderson’s iconic winter fairytale, Hansel and Gretal, the ginger bread house has found its way to The Kings Road and manifested onto the Ivy Chelsea Kitchen. It’s super kitch, beautiful and sweet as you like! (pictured above and below with TheBlondeFlamingo.)
Glittering on the banks of the River Thames like fairy-light filled snow globes, the Coppa Club is London’s first venue to bring us the glass igloos. Enjoy dinner, drinks and festivities under the stars but in the warmth of glass dome and be wowed by dramatic views of Tower Bridge and the London skyline beyond,
Other favourite spots in the city include ice skating at Somerset House, The Natural History Museum and the tower of London. For a fun night out head to Skylight Studios’ igloo and skating rooftop bar or go all out theme fair style and get yourself to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park or Winterville in Clapham Common. Enjoy xx
