Happy New Year!
Hope you had a great Christmas and are eager to get this year started! Below are some ideas of things to do in London this January.
January, for many, is the month where spending and food intake are reduced significantly to balance out a more lavish December. That's why, this month, we've done some digging on fun things that you can do for FREE!

18-28 January - Canary Wharf Winter Lights Across Canary Wharf
After being cancelled last year, the winter lights at Canary Wharf are back every day 5-10pm. The festival is the largest of its kind in London and is sure to bring a bit of cheer to the gloomy January evenings.
London Bridge Walk Westminster - Tower Hill
Wrap yourself up on a bright, chilly winter's day and walk across the main bridges in London. The classic route starts at Westminster and ends at Tower Hill, but if you have the time and the inclination to get those steps in, why not start further upriver!
22 January - Chinese New Year Anywhere/Chinatown
2023 is the year of the Water Rabbit; the rabbit being the luckiest of the Chinese Zodiac animals. Along with many other festivals, last year's Chinese New Year celebrations in Chinatown were cancelled, but hope is here for them to be reinstated this year.
25 January: Burns' Night
Receive an unexpected bottle of whiskey for Christmas and looking for the right excuse to start it? Why not crack it open on Burns night, with some traditional haggis or neeps and tatties. Try your hand in the kitchen (preferably before starting the whiskey) and cook up an online recipe.
