The weather outside is frightful. But London's wintry pop ups are quite delightful. So get seriously cosy at one of the many Christmas-themed spots that spring up all over this city as December approaches. Think lashings of fondue, decadent hot chocolates, steaming mulled wines and ciders, twinkling lights and novelty festive kitsch. From Christmas bars that look straight from the set of ‘White Christmas’ to toasty igloos where you can gorge on hot melted cheese, here’s our round-up of the best hideaways, markets and quirky festive experiences waiting to lure you in from the cheek-tingling cold and warm your socks off.

Enjoy fine dining in a kitschy, wintry setting at Mercer Roof Terrace's festive igloos. Faux fur blankets, flickering candles, and the bright lights of the City of London supply maximum Christmassy atmosphere. Each igloo houses five to eight guests, or for smaller parties of up to four, opt for the venue's dinky greenhouses. The farm-to-table menu makes full use of Mercer's charcoal oven, serving up seasonal comfort galore.

When your Christmas shopping list is longer than Santa's, and you're totally partied out, then it's time to sit down with a good book. And that's something that St Pancras Christmas tree for 2023 can help with. Made in partnership with Hatchards, the UK’s oldest bookshop, this 12-metre-tall tree features a winding staircase, wrapping around 270 book shelves. At its base are eight cosy cubby holes where you can enjoy stories from some of the UK's best-loved authors: bliss.
