Embrace all things autumnal in the capital and get stuck into our guide to all November's offering of cool, crisp things to do.

 

Bonfire Night

November arrives with an abundance of Bonfire Night fireworks to warm things up as the cold nights draw in. Wrap up snug and head to a firework displays to enjoy a show of spectacular colours.

Winter Wonderland

Kicking off the season of festive fun, Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park has become a highlight of Christmas in London, and it’s no wonder why, with a huge ice rink, two circuses, Christmas markets, an observation wheel and the Magical Ice Kingdom.

 

The Enchanted Woodland

The tenth anniversary year of Syon Park's Enchanted Woodland will see the 600-year-old gardens and their 400-odd specimens of tree transformed by specially designed illuminations and lights.

 

Lord Mayor’s Show and Fireworks

An 800-year-old inauguration ceremony that has evolved into a huge procession of marching bands, floats, and acrobats followed by a fireworks display in the evening. Not to be missed.

The 'French' half of 'French and Saunders' and star of 'The Vicar of Dibley' finally brings her solo show to London, playing a West End run of '30 Million Minutes' at the Vaudeville Theatre.

Skate At Somerset House

The grand 18th-century courtyard that is home to Somerset House ice rink provides a stunning location for a skating session this winter.

Thanksgiving

Give thanks for a bountiful harvest and stuff your face, US-style. Thanksgiving is your chance to have a pre-Christmas turkey dinner and there are plenty of restaurants to choose from to celebrate the main culinary festival of the States on 26 November.

Remembrance Sunday

11 November marks Armistice Day when the UK will remember the men and women who gave their lives in the two World Wars and subsequent conflicts. There is a special Silence in the Square event in Trafalgar Square led by The Royal British Legion, from 10am until 11.45am on 8 November, as well as the Cenotaph Parade in Whitehall on 11 November.
