Top 5 Places to Hide from the Rain in London
August 18, 2019
London is such a great place to visit and the main focus when planning your UK holiday. The city is wonderful when its sunny but even when it rains you can walk around with a folding umbrella or find shelter in cosy and wonderful shops and cafes. There’s also a bunch of amazing free places such as museums and reading rooms worth a visit. See our selection of the best places to hide from rain below:
- A must see: James Smith & Sons
Established in 1830 Victorian umbrella shop filled with every kind of umbrella possible from regular ones to folding umbrellas and unique one off brollies. Its an umbrella heaven!
- For fun: Draughts Board Game Café
For £5 this cafe has more than 500 board games to choose from and is a perfect place to wait out the rain.
- For shopping: Stables Market
Camden Market is a popular tourist attraction but you may need a folding umbrella visiting it in the rain. Instead focus on the Stables Market for a selection of bohemian stalls and a network of old horse tunnels.
- For food: Dinerama
A Shoreditch indoor food market beaming with delicious food and casual atmosphere. No folding umbrella needed. Try everything and you wont notice when it stops raining!
- For drink: Sipsmith Distillery
To keep things interesting at the end of the day why not see how gin is made with a tour and a tutored tasting at £25.
Dont forget about all the museums that are free to visit. You will not miss out on anything if you only manage to visit Tate Modern, British Museum, National Gallery and Victoria and Albert Museum. And if you dont mind spending money you should definitely visit the Warner Bros. Studio Tour and Buckingham Palace tour.
There’s plenty of things to see in London rain or not, the city has such powerful energy that even when it does rain you wont mind walking around with a folding umbrella. Just remember about the big city umbrella etiquette!
