A little bit of rain isn’t going to keep us indoors!

It’s not all sunshine and blue skies at the moment (thankfully for nature!), so here are some ideas for things to see and do while staying out of the rain, cold or snow.

Let the sun take a holiday
Save jogging in the park, walks along the riverbanks and outdoor markets for when the sun returns, which may be sooner thank you think! Today is rainy and you’ll need an umbrella.

If you don’t feel like staying in bed with a good book, there are many alternatives on offer… You can take your mind off the weather by visiting the indoor food market Les Halles de Lyon, seeing one of the shows, films or exhibitions on your list (don’t put it off!), or trying an indoor activity or spa. 

Don’t let the grey skies get you down.
