London is alive with culture this Fall – here are our top picks for the season
London’s festival scene is as eclectic and diverse as the British capital itself, with something for all tastes. This summer Lovebox is the festival with the big names. Head over to Victoria Park on the 15 and 16 July to see Major Lazer, LCD Soundsystem and Jungle do their thing. Alternatively, for the more dance-inclined, South West Four at Clapham Common will provide all the beats you could want. The Chemical Brothers, Rudimental and Dizzee Rascal vie for your attention, among many more over the bank holiday weekend – 27 and 28 August.
There’ll be festive spirit coming out of your ears. December means fairy lights, champagne hampers, carols and ballet. Have a traditional London Christmas, with modern art and dance throwing in a few unexpected surprises – like silver charms in a glorious Christmas pudding.
What does the new year bring to London? Brush off the hangovers of NYE parties and check out some great events and exhibitions in January. From concerts and last chance exhibitions to side-splitting comedy shows and then Chinese New Year – January is an exciting month.
If you thought February would be a quiet month in London, then think again. The capital offers abundant ways to celebrate for loved-up couples on Valentine’s Day and plenty for those avoiding the celebrations. Continue to celebrate Chinese New Year throughout the month, with vibrant lantern displays that are not to be missed. Then its pancake-flipping-time on Shrove Tuesday.
If you’re planning a trip to London, one of the most important considerations you’ll make is where to stay. London is like a city of villages, each providing a different vacation experience. Our hotels in London are spread across many of London's neighbourhoods. For entertainment there’s no better place than the West End. Westminster is at the heart of politics and royalty. Or stay around Tower Bridge and soak up quintessential London and the ‘city life’.
Bloomsbury has attracted writers and liberal thinkers for centuries. Streets lined with Victorian architecture and beautiful garden squares contribute to its distinctive village feel. Our bestselling hotel in this area is 3* Royal National – it’s basic but, as a comfortable base in a great location, it is ideal. Alternatively, the 4* Doubletree by Hilton London West End is a stylish contemporary hotel in a beautiful Edwardian block, just off Russell Square. King's Cross St Pancras is one of London’s most newly regenerated areas and an exciting place to be. Here you’ll find The British Museum, The British Library and the much underrated Charles Dickens’ Museum. Fantastic transport links provide easy access around London, and across the UK, with Eurostar serving London's high – speed rail link with Paris, Brussels and continental Europe too.
