Warm-up in a cosy pub
One of the nicest things that you can do in London in Christmas is to enjoy the warmth and cosiness of a London pub with a date while having a pint of beer, mulled wine or cider. The best pubs where you can get the genuine experience of a London pub are located outside Central London. You will get to experience the true London characters in these pubs, in addition to the eccentricity and history that London pubs offer.
Go to a museum (for free!)
This makes a perfect choice if you and your date have interests in art. London offers quite a lot in terms of beauty, history and many interesting exhibitions. The museum buildings themselves have a lot of stories to tell, and just by walking through them one can truly be fascinated by their beauty. The architecture of the Natural History Museum and the ceilings of the British Museum are sights to behold. The best part is that entry into most of these museums is completely free. Seeing the hidden gems in these museums is truly worth the time to experience.
If you are looking for unique experiences that are off the beaten path, you will be intrigued by the hyper-coloured crazy golf course in Camden Town. This Plonk venue is housed in the Victorian horse stables in Camden Market. The venue features a tropical theme spanning across 6 units. The BYOB venue makes a great spot for a night out with a date.
