Best places to enjoy snow in London
With winter now in full swing and Christmas just around the corner, the chance of snow falling over the capital is getting higher by the day, and in the event that we do get a white wintry blanket this year, visitors to the city will find loads of great spots in which to make the most of the weather.
The sight of London dressed in snow is always a memorable one, so it's a good idea to get up high in order to take in a view of the city. The London Eye is just one of the attractions that offers the chance to do so, and even if you've taken a spin on the wheel before, doing so when the city is covered in snow is an altogether different experience.
The observation deck of the Shard, meanwhile, also provides breathtaking views of the capital from high above the ground, with Europe's highest building standing at a whopping 300 m tall.
One of the great things about London is that it is blessed with so many wonderful parks, and these take on a whole new charm when it snows. By heading to Hyde Park, for example, you'll have the chance to see a frosty Kensington Palace Gardens, which is always a sight to behold. The park's lake, the Serpentine, is another of its most picturesque features, and with the possibility of it freezing over, it really does help to create that winter wonderland look.
Hampstead Heath is another place that's always worth heading to in the snow, as it has a distinctly rural feel despite being located in the city. You'll find loads of space here to make a snowman or have a snowball fight, and there are also a few hills which you'll be able to slide down on a sled.
