The best free outdoor things to do between Christmas and New Year’s Eve

Ellie Ross

Christmas Day is all about staying indoors – eating your fill of turkey with all the trimmings, unwrapping presents and watching a festive film or two with a glass of mulled wine in hand.

But come Boxing Day, and in the run-up to New Year’s Eve, it’s time to work off some of those extra calories, dust off the yuletide cobwebs and embrace the great outdoors.

And the good news is that this can be completely free.

So, whether you’re looking for fireworks, a workout or even Santa’s reindeer – we have the time between Christmas and New Year’s Eve all wrapped up.
