A Magical Winter Forest Is Heading To The City Of London This November

Winter Forest

The Winter Forest brings a touch of magic to Liverpool Street.

Ok, so I know that 40% of London is green space and woodland, but there’s only a tiny fraction of it that’s magic. That little slice is known as The Winter Forest, a Christmas pop-up that will be setting up in Broadgate Circle from November 6th. Filled with snow-covered trees and winter goodies, this is one forest we wouldn’t mind getting lost in.

Since none of us cash-strapped millennials can afford a trip to Lapland, the folks behind The Winter Forest will bring it to us instead, for a second year running. Except in 2018, it’s even bigger and better. They’re setting up an enchanted woodland of three hundred pine trees, all lovingly draped with snow and festooned with twinkling fairy lights. The result is, as you’d imagine, rather stunning – and quite Instagrammable, too.

Hiding amongst the trees are some real Christmas crackers. The Winter Forest’s wood cabins will be filled with hot buttered rum, food, arts and crafts, and libations from Mrs Fogg’s pop-up bar. They’ll also be hosting live music from up-and-coming talent, and of course, a visit from the man with the bag himself (that’s Santa, to those who are currently suppressing their Christmas spirit).

Best of all, The Winter Forest will be raising money for Centrepoint, who provide housing and support for young people – so there’s an opportunity to get that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from helping others. And isn’t that just the true meaning of Christmas?

Location: Broadgate Circle, EC2M 2QS. Nearest station is Liverpool Street. See it on Google Maps.
Opening hours: November 6th until December 24th, open seven days a week.
Entry: free! (See more free things to do in London)
More information: from their website.
