After the mild Christmas season weather, colder temperatures are on the way. But you shouldn’t let that keep you cooped up inside. There are plenty of opportunities for fun days out with the kids, even with the cold weather. So grab a scarf, some gloves and a hat, and get out and explore. For example, London is not far away.
