Whether you’re a fan of Christmas or not, there’s no escaping it.
But if you’re not feeling in the festive mood yet, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
We’ve rounded up some of the best festive activities out there – from themed cinemas to being a bit of a humbug Grinch.
Check out our choices below.
Both are set among ‘snow-topped trees’ and twinkling stars for you to cosy up to the likes of Elf and The Muppet Christmas Carol. There are also food and drink stalls, including one where you can build your own boozy hot chocolate.
Be a Grinch at Crimbo
If you’re a bit ‘bah, humbug’, then embrace Grinchmas with a new Grinch afternoon tea bus tour in London on a Routemaster.
You’ll breeze past some of the capital’s landmarks while tucking into a green- themed menu in the style of one of Dr Seuss’s most famous characters. How about ‘sweet as Cindy-Lou WHO’ lime pie?
Departs at varied times between Dec 1 and Jan 31, from £57pp, vegan and gluten-free available.
Cosy Cotswolds Christmas
For a good, old-fashioned countryside Christmas, look no further than Ellenborough Park. A traditional, 15th-century manor house near Cheltenham, it boasts roaring log fires, pine trees and extensive grounds, perfect for hearty winter walks.
Enjoy the many festive offerings, whether it’s just dropping in for afternoon tea (from £35pp), taking a wreath-making masterclass (£80pp), or a party night with prosecco, dinner and a DJ (£70pp).
