The thought of sipping on a steaming glass of mulled wine or a cup of hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows in a wooden log cabin under snow-covered Christmas trees, in London sounds impossible right? Well, you’re wrong…
Welcome to The Winter Forest located in the heart of London’s busy Financial district, Liverpool Street, Broadgate Circle. The festive wonderland is back and bigger than ever complete with snow-covered pine trees, fairy lights as well as festive food and drink and you can even visit the big man himself, Santa.
The Winter forest is packed out with entertainment for the public including live jazz music, gin masterclasses, quiz nights, live bands and Christmas singalongs as well as a new Everyman cinema which will be showing Christmas films and the highly anticipated Disney film, Frozen 2!
The Winter lodge is the main attraction for this year’s festivities. It is an idyllic escape for those who are wanting more of a cosy evening with soft comfy seating in Christmas aromas surrounded by warm interiors. For larger groups that are wanting more intimate seating you can reserve log cabins in advance. There is also a variety of street food including stone baked pizzas and a selection of Christmas beverages.
This year is extra special at The Winter forest as they have teamed up with the mental health charity “Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest” and will donate all their ticket proceeds to support their amazing work that they do for the charity. Broadgate’s collaboration with the charity has allowed them to bring in amazing workshops to help promote a healthier mindset, such as flower arranging, jewellery making as well as baubles and centrepiece designing. All dates and how to book these workshops are on their website.
The Winter Forest is open all day with The Fever Tree Winter Lodge open Mondays to Saturdays from midday to 11pm and on Sundays from midday to 7pm up until 20th December 2019. The closest station to the Winter Forest is Liverpool Street Station and its just a 10 minute tube ride from Bethnal Green tube station.
