Don’t let London’s downpour dampen your autumn; the city still has plenty to offer! So, we’ve curated a list of indoor activities in Holborn to show you that no matter the weather, there’s always somewhere to explore in London.
Bounce Farringdon – London’s original Ping Pong bar, home to 17 ping pong tables, a restaurant and a bar, all in a single beautifully designed space. With so much fun under one roof, there’d be no reason to leave this shelter.
The British Museum
The British Museum is architecturally amazing outside and in. It houses some of the world’s most treasured collections, so it is the perfect place to get lost in for a couple of hours while you keep out of the rain.
We can’t think of a better way to stay cosy indoors than a relaxing spa day. Warm-up from the autumn winds in Sense spa’s amethyst crystal steam rooms and dry heat saunas. Treat yourself to an indulgent luxury experience and try out the signature facial or a fabulous massage. If the rain is particularity persistent, why not stay a little longer and enjoy some afternoon tea at the Rosewood Hotel?
James Smith & Sons
If you absolutely need to head outside during a downpour, use it as an opportunity to purchase a beautiful new umbrella. James Smith & Sons‘ umbrella shop opened in 1830, and its original fittings are still intact. So, take a trip back in time, give the rain what for, and invest in a handcrafted, incredibly made umbrella.
Foyles holds the UK’s most extensive range of books, with 50 departments spreading over 5 floors, you could spend hours just browsing the store. Once you’ve found your chosen read, settle into the shop’s cafe, have a coffee and escape the weather in another world.
