Collecting ideas for a fun date with a friend, or a romantic meet-up that doesn’t involve alcohol in London? Have a look at our exciting list of alcohol-free activities for you to enjoy in the city of London.

Just because you don’t drink alcohol doesn’t mean the fun needs to stop, but preparation is key when you are in early recovery. Planning ahead ensures that the events you attend are fun and interesting, and not focused on intoxicants.

When recovering from addiction, you know your old ways of drinking or taking harmful drugs have to stop, but that means some lifestyle changes need to occur to maintain your sobriety. ‘Getting yourself out there’ and exploring new experiences is one way of beginning your new life away from alcohol or drugs. 

The Coronavirus is still lingering, so we have done all the hard work for you when it comes to finding an event that’s still operating.
