Go ice skating in the West End
Looking for the ultimate outdoor activity? Head to Skate West End, an elliptical ice rink that’s taken over Hanover Square. Whizz around the rink with your colleagues and then warm up with a hot drink at the central bar. Skate West End is partnered with GOSH Charity (Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity), and a percentage of each ticket sale will go towards supporting the hospital’s work caring for seriously ill children. The ice rink will be open until New Year’s Day, and you can book tickets here.
Enter an immersive reality at Frameless
For Christmas parties of the cultural kind, step inside immersive galleries and bond over masterpieces from some of the world’s greatest artists. Frameless is the largest permanent multi-sensory experience in the UK, featuring four galleries that showcase art in ways never seen before. Bag your tickets here before they sell out. You can even hire the whole event space and work with the team to create a Christmas experience like no other. From dining in an Alpine forest complete with snowfall or a reception surrounded by the Northern Lights, Frameless offers endless opportunities to leave a lasting impression.
Enter a playground of perceptions at Twist Museum
If you’re looking for another fresh alternative to traditional venues, Twist Museum’s exhibits offer a mind-bending backdrop for your end of year function. Developed in collaboration with artists, neuroscientists and philosophers, Twist Museum is an immersive experience that explores – and puts to the test – the power of your mind in experiencing the world around you. Perfect for a drinks reception with a twist or festive workshop, make your group booking here and explore the world of illusions together.
Tuck into a festive feast
Refuel after an adrenalin-fueled activity with a festive lunch or afternoon tea on Oxford Street. Culinary delights at Market Halls include yorkshire pudding with all the trimmings at Sexy Buns, a Turkey Shawarma at Le Bab and Xmas Poutine at 20ft Chicken. For something more traditional, try a festive afternoon tea or a four-course Christmas day luncheon at the Bond Street Hotel, featuring classics with a twist like Black Norfolk roast turkey with Manuka-honeyed veg and Pancetta-wrapped wild board and apple sausages, with Nutmeg Brulee to finish.
