Events in London – January 2018

London begins 2018 with a big parade on New Year’s Day. The school kids will still be on holiday during the first week, and the streets will be busy with shoppers in the sales, so the cold weather and short days (it’s dark by 5 PM) makes it a great time for trying London’s quiet galleries and museums.
