Cuckooz Curates: Christmas in London
Words by Bryony Rosier, Friday 06 December 2019

We tried to supress it as long as we could, but resistance is futile when you live in London, and we've officially caught Chritstmas Fever! Sack off the regular tourist traps and discover London the right way.. by checking out Cuckooz top list of the best places to Eat, Drink, Shop and 'Do' this most wonderful time of the year...

Eat

Duck and Waffle, Bishopsgate

For those who are yet to visit London's famed restaurant atop the 40th floor of Heron Tower in the Financial District, now's your chance. Dressed to the nines in Nordic festivity, grab a spot in one of their gondola's and enjoy some seriously spectacular views across the City. Even the menu has had a seasonal makeover, serving a veritable feast of Christmas delicacies, such as decorative pine-infused panna cotta, served with almond shortbread, spiced cranberries and compressed apples in cider or their wellington nut roast served with maple baked sweet potatoes.

Drink

Dalloway Terrace, Bloomsbury

If you fancy a trip to the Swiss Alps without the cost of a plane ticket, head on down to one of London's most instagrammable retreats - Dalloway Terrace in Bloomsbury. If the thick wall of snow covered pine garlands, cow bells and frosty foliage aren't enough to transport you, give their apres-ski menu a try, and sample everything from Gruyere cheese sandwiches, Mont Blanc tarts, and homemade Toblerone. As for a tipple, we strongly reccomend you give their 'Chocolar Chaud' cocktail a try - marrying Nonino Wiliams Pear with white chocolate, creme de menthe and creme de cacao.

Shop

Sample Christmas Market

Love a Christmas Market but hate being shoulder to shoulder with frantic shoppers? Try the sample Christmas Market out for size. Located in the lush Penninsula Garden, you can find work from up-and-coming designers, hand crafted gifts and festive food stalls galore, alongside brass bands and gospel choirs to cheer even the scroogiest naysayers amongst you.

Winter Night Garden @ Backyard Cinema

Last but not least, our favourite pick of the festive season by far - The Winter Night Garden by Backyard Cinema. For those who thought Christmas magic was just for kids, wait til you see what the creative minds at Backyard Cinema have put together this year. Step through a wooden wardobe into a Narnia-style wintery garden, filled with lights and snow as you make your way to the cosy indoor cinema space, where you can book a whole range of festive favourites, from Christmas Classics such as Home Alone and Miracle on 34th Street to modern day corny classics such as Love Actually and The Holiday.
