CHRISTMAS MARKETS: December’s here, which means Christmas markets are opening thick and fast. To find the closest one to you, check our Christmas markets and fairs listing.
CANDLELIGHT MUSEUM: On the first Tuesday of every month, Sir John Soane’s Museum near Holborn stays open late to let visitors explore the building by candlelight. The event is always extremely popular, with long queues, so we recommend getting there early to get your free ticket. Free, just turn up, from 5.30pm
OPEN STUDIOS: Eel Pie Island Artist Studios in Twickenham have a rare open day, giving the public a chance to access the private island, see artists at work and buy or commission work. Free, 10.30am-5.30pm, 6-7 December
