Our Top Winter Travel Content: Part One

Every year, when the weather starts to turn chilly in our corner of the world, we find that the content we produce for clients at World Words begins to take on a distinctly seasonal slant. All of a sudden, the travel content agenda is dominated by all things wintery, from celebrations like Christmas and New Year, to activities like winter sports.

Our winter travel content is for everyone to enjoy. Disappointed you’re not cosied up in a chalet by a roaring log fire? Read about our Alpine adventures in St. Moritz and pretend you are. Rather be flying down mountain slopes on skis? Read our expert blog about winter sports spots in Lake Como. Want to turn the clock back a few days to imagine yourself at the height of the festivities? Read our rundown of seasonal activities in South East England.

Our winter content isn’t all about mince pies and snow either; we’ve also written about Ryanair’s latest winter sun destination, Eilat (for those who want to escape the bleak weather) and London’s best cultural events (for those fed up of staying indoors). We’ve selected five of our finest winter pieces, so scroll down to read a little of each.

Museums at Night: London’s After Dark Exhibitions
As the popular Night at the Museum movies attest, there’s something that sparks the imagination when we think about what happens to exhibitions after the tourists leave, the doors close and the lights go out. The fact is, museums do take on a totally different atmosphere after dark, and this is a rare opportunity to see for yourself…

Winter Sports in Lake Como, Italy
For most visitors to the Italian lakes, it’s all about sun and swimming, but when Lake Como casts off its summer skin (and crowds) it makes room for wintery delights. Down around the lake’s edge in winter, the atmosphere is peaceful and serene, but up in the mountains, thrill-seeking skiers and snowboarders tear up the Alpine slopes…
