Where to get takeaway mulled wine in London for a crisp winter walk

The best places to get takeaway mulled wine and festive hot drinks in London this winter. 

Lockdown 2.0 means that our options are pretty limited when it comes to weekend plans. But, although we won’t be heading to any bars or restaurants this month, there’s one thing that we most certainly can do, and that is to go for a walk.

That’s right, taking a long, crisp winter walk in one of London’s lovely parks is something we’re revelling in right now. And, while we’re loving the colder weather for the excuse to break out our winter wardrobes, it never hurts to have a warm drink to keep your hands toastie.

At this time of year, there is only one warm drink we’ve got in mind, though, and that’s a sweet cup of mulled wine. The good news? Certain pubs, bars and restaurants in London are still doing treats like mulled wine, mulled cider and hot toddies to takeaway.
