As we all know, London is a beautiful and diverse city. We enjoy visitors here all throughout the year, but we know that the influx is especially in the summer months. The school holidays bring international visitors who come from around the globe to see the typical “post-card” hotspots like Buckingham Palace and Tower Bridge.
Now that autumn is very much upon us, we’ll see a slight decrease in numbers, but it’s a great time to enjoy the city as a Londoner. Even looking at the guides written for the tourists can give you an idea of trying something a little bit different.
While the weather isn’t great, there’s still a diversity of things you can enjoy here. The 5th of November, for example, is a huge night across the country, and London will keep you spoiled for choice in terms of firework displays and the like. Look no further than the Wimbledon Park Bonfire to enjoy the most explosive night of the year.
Even for those looking for something a little more cultured, you can get plenty in the calendar, especially if you look to the city centre. Covent Garden is popular throughout the year but a look at what’s on over the next few months reveals everything from London Beauty Week to food and drink events all throughout autumn. All of this set in one of the best parts of the city centre.
If you are able to brave the cold, take a trip to parts of the city you might not otherwise visit and see what this great place has to offer. You might be surprised at what you find!
