If you enjoy looking at exciting and modern art installations full of light and wonder, you will feel right at home exploring the different venues partaking in the brilliant new edition of the much influential Lumiere London.

This event will be of such a grand scale that it could easily become your sole focus if you visit during those particular days.

Skating with Friends at Somerset House

In those days when you want to shake off the January cold with some enjoyable fitness, one of your best options is to get a pair of skates and your best friends and visit the ice rink at the Somerset House in Temple. This lively courtyard has been brilliantly adapted for skating, and there you’ll get a chance to mingle with skaters of all skill levels while enjoying some very pleasurable and proper winter fun.

Two Interesting Cultural Exhibitions

When you feel like putting on your figurative monocles to enjoy some cultural events, grab your cultured friends and head out for the British Museum in Bloomsbury to enjoy an intense look at the ancient Siberian warriors, the Scythians. For something more contemporary and cute, try the Tove Jansson show over at the Picture Gallery in Dulwich Village. Here you will enjoy reminiscing about the memorable and very recognizable work of this artist from Finland, whose work touched the hearts of people around the globe with her popular comic strip.
