Some Londoners headed out to enjoy the snow

It doesn't snow very often in the capital, which means Londoners are unlikely to have a sledge to hand. But when it does snow, many people like to have fun, whether that's building a snowman or sledging down the hill. After all, it's an infrequent occurrence.

Some Londoners got pretty creative when they decided to sledge down Primrose Hill in North London, as snow swept across the city on Sunday, December 11. In a video posted to TikTok, a woman showed the random items used to slide down the hill from the top of the famous London viewpoint. The video was captioned: "Sleds Londoners used on Primrose Hill."

It also came with the video-sharing app's warning that "participating in this activity could result in your or others getting hurt". The first random object used was a cardboard box. A second Londoner used a giant inflatable pretzel, one that's usually used in a swimming pool.

The third item was a plastic bag. One person did have an actual sledge to hand. The TikTok user who posted the video later said in the comments: "I forgot to include the one where a guy used a Lime scooter." Other TikTok users were quick to comment on the sledging.

"When it snows like this once a decade, I can't blame people for not having proper sleds," wrote one. "My dad and his mates used tea trays back in the day," a second added. And a third tagged their friend, writing: "An inflatable was such a good idea."

Meanwhile others gave their suggestions on what to use and what not to. One said: "For sale signs make a good one." A second commented: "I was there but I used a bin bag." A third added: "I used a blow up mattress once." While a fourth wrote: "I saw someone used an old bathtub once."

One TikTok user expressed their shock that a Londoner had an actual sledge with them: "I want to know why the hell that person had a real sled? As a Londoner myself, I don't know anyone who has a sled lying around." The TikTok video has racked up more than 130,000 views and 19,000 likes.
