It’s raining, it’s pouring but your winter doesn’t have to be boring!

Yes, the rain does ruin your hair, your mood and more than likely, your winter plans. But cabin fever doesn’t have to kick in too quickly. While binge-watching Gossip Girl for the 5thtime may seem appealing when the weather is drizzly and dull, don’t let that stop you from embracing the winter.

If you find yourself needing a bit of inspiration for what to do on those grey days, here is a list of the 10 greatest things to do when the sun isn’t shining.

Putt a Hole in One at Swingers

Nothing like a competitive game of golf to forget about the dreary weather outside. Swingers West Endbrags two romantic, traditional seaside themed crazy golf courses, together with four glamourous cocktail bars. Rainy days suddenly don’t seem so unappealing huh?

Gaze over views of London at the Sky Garden

If gazing over views of London (for free might we add) is your thing, then look no further! Offering both panoramic views of the city and a botanical paradise all in one viewing gallery 43 floors up in the sky, the Sky Gardenis the perfect place to marvel over the gorgeous city of London without getting drenched in the rain.

The Sky Garden also has bars and restaurants on offer, so if you fancy a martini 160 metres in the sky, this is your calling.

Get Cosy at the Everyman

Multiplex cinemas are a thing of the past; dreary weather in the winter calls for a luxury, à la mode cinema experience and the Everyman provides nothing but that. Swanky seating and table service providing drinks and snacks changes the cinema game entirely and transforms a simple trip to the pictures into an opulent affair.

Laugh the Night Away at the Comedy Store

The Comedy Store in Leicester Square is the perfect place to drown your sorrows and laugh away your winter blues. Providing both matinee and evening performances every day of the week, these especially, hand-picked comedians are sure to make you forget about the gloom of winter at this underground, cosy venue.

Reach for the Stars at Oxygen Freejumping

Working out can seem like a drag during these cold months and hauling yourself out of bed to actually go to the gym is exercise in itself. However, Oxygen Freejumping have changed the game entirely and made working out fun (yes, it’s possible!). Named the UK’s Number 1 trampoline park, you can jump and flip until your heart is content; unleashing your inner 5-year-old, while burning off all the Christmas calories too.

Get a Strike at Rowan’s

A bowling alley, bars, karaoke, table tennis, arcades and many more activities squeezed into one venue in Finsbury Park, what is not to love? Providing something for everybody, Rowan’s is a perfect place to hide from the dreary, cold weather for a couple of hours. Located conveniently in Finsbury Park in North London, Rowan’s is easily accessible from all across the city, so, what are you waiting for? Loser buys the drinks!
