What’s On This Weekend: 28-29 December

That tricky weekend between Christmas and New Year’s Eve doesn’t have to be spent in a food coma watching all those comedy DVDs you were given on Wednesday. As always, there is lots to see and do in London, including Boxing Day sales and a medieval celebration at the Tower of London.

Boxing Day Sales

You may know them as the January sales, but many of the best shops, malls and department stores start their sales on 26 December. We have a guide to the sales dates and how to make the most of your shopping spree, including Westfield, Harvey Nichols and Harrods. From 26 Dec

Medieval Christmas at Tower of London

The Christmas events haven’t dried up just yet, as the Tower of London is putting on a special exhibition from 27 December. Head to the famous London landmark and be transported back to Christmas 1284, where the Norman court of the King of England Edward I is preparing to celebrate the festive season in the newly built White Tower, complete with disgruntled Saxon workers outside of the castle walls. 27-31 Dec


The Roundhouse welcomes back its fastest-ever selling show, Fuerzabruta, this week, making this the perfect weekend to see what all the fuss is about! The show defies a straightforward explanation as it blends special effects with amazing stunts and a nerve-shredding soundtrack, as actors appear all round the venue for what is a captivating spectacle. 23 Dec-2 Mar

Disney on Ice: Dare To Dream

Disney on Ice is back for a short run at The O2 Arena for a celebration of Disney Princesses new and old. Kids can see Rapunzel, Tiana, Cinderella and, of course, Snow White strut their stuff on the ice. 26 Dec-5 Jan

Catch an Exhibition

It’s a great time to check out an exhibition this weekend, as the museums should be quieter than usual. Our list of the top ten current exhibitions would be a good place to start, including Paul Klee, Henri Matisse, Paul Smith and the Taylor Wessing Prize.

Spa Day

If you didn’t get that spa day you were hoping for, why not treat yourself to some post-Christmas pre-New Year’s pampering? We list London’s best spas and can think of little better to melt away the stress of stuffing the turkey and deciding where to go on NYE than a full body massage!
