Get in the Festive Spirit!
The Snowman at Sadler's Wells

Christmas at Kew
The Royal Botanic Gardens Kew transforms into a winter wonderland once again, with various shows, installations and events for all the family. With over 1 million twinkling lights, it’s nothing short of completely magical! Until 1 Jan
Christmas Shopping at Highgrove
Receive the royal treatment as The Prince of Wales welcomes you to Highgrove, his private estate, for a spot of Christmas shopping with a glass of fizz in hand. Hosted in the Orchard Room, you’ll find unique gift ideas from the estate. Make a day of it and book in for a two-course lunch. 22 Nov – 17 Dec.  

Located a little further South? Britain’s most creative coastal town flings its doors open to one and all for Brighton’s Artists Open Houses Christmas Festival, when hundreds of local artists will welcome visitors into their homes and studios over three weekends. Find out more here. From 25 Nov
Try London's Best Italian Restaurants
Bocca di Lupo, Soho
This fabulous restaurant in Soho has won numerous accolades since opening in 2008 for its menu of constantly-changing Italian regional specialities. One highlight is the pasta with raw duck egg, parmesan and white truffle. Full review here.
Popolo, Shoreditch
Head to trendy Shoreditch this weekend for food that you'll struggle to forget. Combining Italian, Middle Eastern and Moorish cuisines, standout fusion dishes include grilled octopus with smoky baba ghanoush. Read our full review here.
Modigliani Exhibition Opens at Tate Modern
Get down to Tate Modern for the opening weekend of the long-awaited Modigliani exhibition. The 20th century’s most strikingly original painter of nudes, Modigliani’s works were banned in his lifetime. Contemporaries were shocked by his brazen approach to the female form.

Paintings of his friends and lovers have been assembled from across the globe this winter at Tate Modern to display his unique talent. 23 Nov – 2 April.
