Try a new restaurant

It’s always a good idea to try something new. Let this new thing be a restaurant you haven’t eaten in before. Be open, discover new places and cuisines. It can be very cozy to watch the rain from a warm and comfortable restaurant while eating something delicious. You can also just get it delivered if you prefer staying at home, just set up the dining room like you were in a restaurant with candles and your best china.

Visit a museum

Nice idea isn't it? London has an incredible selection of museums and most of them are free too. What's not to like here?! You can learn many new things and it’s a lot of fun too. You will find plenty of interesting museums in London and there are definitely more where you have not been. It’s a good choice to visit one on a rainy day.

Go for a walk in nature

Yepp, you read it right. Nature sounds and smells so different during rainy days so why not embrace the rain and make the most of it. Just put on your rain coat, your wellies and explore nature around London. It's the perfect way to avoid the crowds and to enjoy nature in an unusual way. You can always book a restaurant at the end of your trail to warm up next to the fireplace with a hot coco.

Go bowling

Honestly, who doesn’t like bowling, right? If you’ve never tried it, rainy weather is best to go bowling. Find the place closest to you and book with your friends or family. Make your own little championship and celebrate the winners after the bowling with medals and trophies. Perfect excuse to grab a bite after to refuel after the sporty event.

Spa day

Healthy soul in healthy body. Everyone sometimes needs a relaxing day when they just take care of themselves. A spa day is a perfect way to do that. Take a day off if you can, forget everything that happens in everyday life and gather everything you need for a spa day. You are guaranteed not to regret your decision. Not just on rainy days, but anytime you need a little rest. This is a perfect stay in option too, just let the experts come to you.

Escape room

Of course, this cannot be left out of the list. Shared experiences, lots of fun and special puzzles. Sounds good doesn't it? Book an escape room with your friends and family. No matter what the weather, it’s always fun, but if it's raining and you'd rather do something inside, you couldn’t find a better way to spend time together. Our Print+Cut+Escape series is perfect if you don't feel like leaving the house.


Do some shopping

Let's go shopping! Or just a little window shopping?! You can decide what your cup of tea is. Bad weather is a good opportunity to look around the shops and refresh our wardrobe, buy some decorations for our home or look for a nice gift for one of our loved ones.

Watch a movie

This is a jolly joker when talking about fun. You can almost always find yourself a movie you’d love to watch. Especially that we can go to the movies again and we all know that nothing compares to the silver screen. Is it raining outside? Not a problem. Check out what movies are in your favorite movie theater, pick one stock up on snacks and enjoy! Popcorn, comfortable chair and 2 hours of switching off from the world.

Embrace the rain
