Our Seasonal Picks.

The holiday season doesn't end in December... 

January is a great time to visit the UK, with many traditional festive and winter events running, and some of the clearest winter weather. These are our handpicked, must-see events and activities for the late winter season.

See the Christmas lights

Illuminating the crisp winter streets with lights each winter, these festive displays fill the air with Christmas cheer. Now a well-known tradition, twinkling fairy lights can be seen in countless parts of Britain, from the palatial corners of Regent Street in the capital to quaint towns such as Harrogate in Yorkshire.


Festive food

For many, winter festivities mean tucking into some deliciously warming food and drink. This is certainly the case in Britain, as the holiday season welcomes traditional treats such as mince pies and Christmas pudding. Ask your family if you can help them to make a traditional British roast dinner!


Traditional markets

Warm up on a cold day by strolling through the many cosy Christmas markets around the UK. Some of these markets run into January - see the list below:


New Year's Day celebrations

Aside from London's famous new year's day parade, many places around the UK have traditional new year's celebrations. The 1st of January is a public holiday in Britain, so many people spend time with family and make new year's resolutions - promises to themselves for the year ahead. Ask your teacher if you can make some new year's resolutions together!


Hogwarts in the Snow

See the iconic Harry Potter film sets transformed for the winter season in a self-guided walking tour of the Warner Bros. Studio in London, during Hogwarts in the Snow around Christmas time, which runs until January the 16th.


Go for a winter walk

Britain is beautiful in the wintertime, and there's nothing like a frosty walk along country roads or through magical woodlands - wrap up warm, and see if you can spot some wildlife, like the robin, a bird known for its bright red belly that is a symbol for winter in the UK.


Shop the January sales

Grab a bargain in the famous January sales - many designer and high street shops have big reductions after the Christmas rush, so it's a great time to shop!
