Everything That’s Trending in London This Week
It comes as no surprise, but London’s Christmas offerings have been very popular this week. Although we’re not even halfway through November, it seems that Londoners are gearing up for the festive season ahead - jingle bells and all. To help you prepare for the winter months, we’ve put together a list of the top five trending venues in the city, from Christmas pop-ups covered in twinkling decorations to the return of the dazzling nutcracker ballet. If you’re more in the mood for an activity that’s not so festive (but still fun), then the Bindy Street app is bustling with alternatives.
Flight Club London Victoria are walking in a winter wonderland this Christmas. Their terrace has been transformed into a festive paradise, teeming with snow-frosted trees, shimmering baubles, twinkling fairy lights, and even seasonal cocktails from an exclusive menu. Out of all of their delicious drinks, we definitely recommend the Winter Colada with a tropical twist - the ideal tipple to wind down with once you’ve finished throwing some darts.
