Best Rainy-Day Activities in London

  • Friday 4th November 2022


London is filled with amazing parks and beautiful outdoor sites, but what about on a cold and wet day? Don’t let that drizzly weather stop you from having a wonderful day out. London has a lot to offer when it comes to staying out of the rain!  

Here are some of the best activities to do whilst staying warm and dry in London on a rainy day!  

Go to the cinema

A rainy day go to for many, a day out at the Cinema never let’s you down! Grab a few of your closest family and friends, a big bucket of popcorn and check out a classic film at one of London’s many cinemas. Are you a big movie fan? We recommend you check out BFI South Bank!  

Dive in to the London aquarium

Avoid getting wet, but still enjoy watery views? SEA LIFE London Aquarium is the perfect way to escape the bad weather for you and the little ones. Take a peaceful stroll through the 14 unique zones and see a range of jellyfish, sharks, corals and colourful fish. Book in advance to secure your spot.

See the sites at London Eye

The London Eye is a well known spot to see a beautiful sunset over London, but how about in the rain? Enjoy some breath taking views of the Thames as you watch the rain drops roll down your pod. Plus visit both the London Eye and SEA LIFE London Aquarium and save. Find attraction discounts here.

Explore Borough Market

Even on a rainy day, Borough Market is a great day out for the family. The overhead shelter from the above train tracks makes the perfect hide away from the wet weather. Enjoy the hot soups, warm sandwiches and the wide variety of locally sourced food and gifts!

Go Bowling

What better way to escape the rain, then having a bowl? A fun filled day for Mums, Dads and kids alike, ten pin bowling gets the kids out and moving, and if you are up for it a little friendly competition. All Stars Lanes White City is a great spot close to central London.

Shopping Spree at Westfield

Everyone loves a shopping spree! Grab your reusable bags and head out to Westfield Shopping centre, White City. Be sure to shop smart and pick locally sourced products and small designers.   


So don’t let the rain get you down. Throw on your best and brightest rain coat and head on out for a fun and not so wet day in London!
