Guide To Celebrating Your Birthday In London This Winter
If you have a winter birthday, you miss out on long, bright summer days, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make a brilliant day (or more) of it. Take a look at our ideas for birthday celebrations in London and start planning your break!
You’ll find a variety of attractions and events, some of which also let you enjoy the magic of Christmastime in the city.
Begin your special day with brunch
What better way to kick off your birthday celebrations in London than by enjoying the best brunch Kensington has to offer? Let our round-up inspire you.
Enjoy steak and eggs, buttermilk pancakes, French toast, sweet potato and red chilli hash, or your choice of a variety of other meals at Ffiona’s. Available on Saturdays and Sundays, the brunch menu at Aubaine features granola and duck parfaits, buttery pastries, breakfast wraps, prosecco, Bloody Marys and other delights.
For a seasonal best brunch Kensington offers, head to Muriel’s Kitchen. Ricotta pancakes, banana bread with nut butter, and Buddha bowls are just some of the items on the menu. Clarence Court eggs on sourdough toast, bacon and egg brioche baps, and a full English breakfast are some of the items on the appetizing brunch menu at South Kensington’s Hunter’s Moon.
Alternatively, enjoy a slow wander through the streets of Kensington and Chelsea and browse the menus of some of the many renowned restaurants in the royal borough.
London winter birthday ideas
Your birthday shouldn’t revolve around brunch alone. Check out these winter birthday ideas.
Hop aboard the Christmas Steam Express and see the sights from a fully restored vintage steam train. In addition to enjoying the unique setting, you’ll also be served a fantastic dinner. If you prefer to eat on solid ground, why not enjoy a special meal in one of the winter igloos at various restaurants and pubs in London?
Add live entertainment to your winter birthday party by taking in a show at one of the West End’s theatres or by attending Gin-House Burlesque, a burlesque show at the King’s Head Member’s Club. Enjoy a pub crawl with a difference by going on a tour of some of London’s haunted pubs (the grey skies and early evenings make it the perfect season for this winter birthday idea).
If you want to combine some festive cheer with your birthday celebrations in London, you’ll find plenty on offer. Visit the Churchill Arms to see what might be the ultimate Kensington Christmas tree. The pub is usually decked out with baskets of colourful flowers, but those are swapped with decorated trees during the holiday season.
Explore the themed rooftop at the Queen of Hoxton – every Christmastime sees the bar and club’s rooftop transformed by a suitably fabulous theme. For birthday celebrations in London with a difference, gather your loved ones for a festive canal cruise from Kings Cross.
Curate a suitable celebratory meal by wandering through the famous Borough Market, or head to Covent Garden, where you’ll see a giant Christmas tree illuminated by 30,000 lights, as well as 22-foot silver reindeer. After marvelling at those installations, treat yourself to coffee and cake or a few gifts from the famous market’s stalls and cafes.

Your birthday celebrations in London would be incomplete without modern accommodation in a central location. Let part of treating yourself be a comfortable room at Park International Hotel London.
