With the nights drawing in and a fresh winter chill nipping around our ankles (must give in to the socks and boots) we are all in need of a little Hygge. Hygge, yeah you know it, Danish for ‘quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment, or well-being.”
With this in mind, we’ve pick the top 4 top places to get cosy with your date. Wrap yourselves up in one another and give good Hygge.
Why let the eskimos have all the fun? Coppa Clubs fabulous igloos are back in town and can be found dotted along the riverside at Tower Bridge. Complete with sheepskin blankets, heaters and xmas tunes, these are the perfet place to dine with your date and break the ice… but get in quick if you want to book one!
We’ve always wanted to sit inside one of those snow globes..preferably without being turned upside down and shaken. No danger of that in these cosy little fixtures sprinkled along the Southbank. Or, head to their nearby après-ski style two story lodge on the Southbank where you and your date can also cosy up by the fireplace, sample a fondue supper on the rooftop or get your cheeks all a’glow with a hot toddy or two…
Part of the Southbank Centre’s Wintertime Festival, wrap up warm and mooch the market stalls. Or, should you wish to sample a little Swedish charm, head to the ‘Julmarknad’ for a novel xmas shopping experience. Running from 23-26th November and located at the London Church of Sweden, browse and buy gorgeous Swedish Christmas crafted items, perfect stocking fillers ideas, then cosy up over a mug of Glögg.
Lose yourself and stroll arm in arm thorough a magical winter wonderland at Syon Park’s Enchanted Woodland. There you can follow the trail of twinkly lights beside an illuminated lake…
Do you know of any other cosy date ideas this winter? Share the warmth (and love) @lovestruck
