There are a huge variety of attractions, family-friendly activities and special events happening throughout the month that gives everyone a chance to discover something new in the capital.

If you’re planning on visiting the City and are unsure about what to do during your 2023 February holidays in London, then look no further as we list below three top attractions and events that you won’t want to miss.

Grimaldi Service

Finally, visitors will once again be able to venture in person to All Saints Church located in Haggerston to witness clowns donned in full outfits, as they gather to honour the proclaimed ‘king of clowns’ Joseph Grimaldi. The last two years have seen the service pre-recorded which means that this year will be extra special and you can bet that the costumes and props that will be on show during the service will be fantastic. We’d recommend arriving early as this event usually packs out quickly, and after a two year absence we imagine that this year will be even busier than previous ones, the service begins at around 3pm, followed by a clown show which is suitable for all ages.

Big Penny Beer Fest

If you’re a beer aficionado then you’ll know about Blackhorse Lane, it’s one of the holy grails of London in terms of locally brewed, outstanding craft beer. Top tier breweries like Signature, Exale, Beerblefish, Hackney and Wild Card are just a few names of the powerhouses of breweries that have come to exist in that area over the last five years.

The area has become such a hot spot for fans of a good pint that there’s even a Blackhorse Beer Mile, situated on said Mile is a popular spot known as Big Penny Social. These guys are hosting what promises to be a monumental beer festival, to really solidify its place within the area as a Beer Mile destination. Attendees will be able to sample over 150 cask ales and beers, all of which will be provided by the best independent breweries in the south. The aforementioned breweries will be in attendance plus loads more fan favourites such as Burning Sky, Five Points and Redemption. Although it is a beer festival, punters will be able to sup their favourite tipples including, local spirits and cocktails provided by the same breweries mentioned. Expect live music, DJ’s and even a pint glass included in the price just to make the deal a little bit sweeter.

‘Saint Jude’

This new immersive show from Swamp Motel will have you on the edge of your seat for the entire performance. This encompassing piece of storytelling takes you on a monumental adventure through the Cold War and also includes a choose-your-own-adventure aspect which includes good old fashioned adventure that all takes place in the mind.
