Let’s face it, the weather is now freezing and a standard glass of red wine is not going to warm us on a cold winter’s eve, which is why we are very excited that mulled wine season has arrived. We’ve tried and tested some of the best places to hug a mulled wine in London and thrown in some impressive vantage points for good measure. It’s now time to mull over our picks below…
Visit the mesmerising botanical bolthole located on the top of Olympia London. Enjoy a beautiful winter sanctuary, the perfect escape from the winter chill.

Perhaps you’re looking to keep things a little more traditional with a festive feeling pub where you can huddle by a blazing open fire and enjoy a mulled wine.
