Social Distancing — Top Activities to Do in London While Staying Safe

With government regulations starting to relax a little, we want to give you a fresh list of ideas on how to make the most of this brilliant capital of ours! Whether you're looking for some indoor activities or to make the most of this gorgeous weather, we've got you covered, Londoners!

Top 5 Outdoor Activities

1. Pop to the park for a picnic. 

Summer is well on its way so take advantage of the glorious weather and get yourself down to one of London's luscious parks and while away the afternoon. Put together the basket yourself or treat yourself to a hamper from a local delicatessen.

2. Take a long walk.

After being cooped up in our homes for quite a while, why not set out on a slightly longer adventure? From the picturesque canals to some infamous landmarks, London is a brilliant city to explore on foot. Check out some of the best strolls HERE.

3. Hit the food markets.

With outdoor markets reopening on 1 June 2020, organise a socially distanced date at one of London's many open-air food markets. Soak up the alfresco vibes and chow down on some tasty brunch, lunch, or dinner from the local vendors.

4. Cycle off to see more.

You can venture a heck of a lot further when you're on two wheels! Pack a lunch and feel as though you've escaped the city for a few hours by venturing out on one of these beautifully scenic rides.

5. Take to the water.

Enjoy a moment of serenity away from the busy streets and float along one of London's lovely lakes. Get yourself down to the Serpentine in Hyde Park — one of the city's top boating lakes and a wonderful spot to spend an afternoon.

Top 5 Indoor Activities

1. Expand your indoor oasis.

With garden centres reopened, now is the time to build on and nurture your plant family. Track down a bunch of trendy pots and some flora that are going to thrive in the summertime and get planting! You'll never want to leave the gorgeous jungle you created.

2. DIY your own happy hour & dart o' clock.

As pubs are to remain closed for now, why not recreate the vibe of your favourite local at home! Order a dartboard online, set your household a happy hour, play a little 'round the world' and you'll have a fierce tournament on your hands in no time.

3. Enjoy the theatre.

At a time when we're all crying out for a bit of escapism, the UK National Theatre has certainly delivered. The adaptation they have shown during this time is inspired and they continue to offer up some incredible productions for the general public to enjoy. See what's showing this week.

4. Go on date night.

Let's ramp it up a bit from the usual pizza delivery, shall we? A bunch of London's top restaurants are now offering home delivery for the first time. Get dolled up and organise a memorable date night, with exceptional food, for that special someone.

5. It’s game time.

Now here’s one for the whole family! Let's move away from the consoles and get back to good old-fashioned gaming interaction! Board games are a great way to bring the family together. Set the whole day aside for Catan or keep the rounds quick with Bananagrams!


Whether you're keen to stay home for a while longer or you're ready to get out for some fresh air and adventure, make sure you continue to abide by the government guidelines. If you are going to be out of the house, toting a hand sanitiser is a good way to keep your hands clean as you practise social distancing.
