Even when Autumn approaches, London is a terrific place to visit. The outdoors are a wonderful palette of colour, with the trees changing colour in the parks, gardens and green open spaces across London. Take a leisurely stroll and enjoy the myriad of events lined up in the London social calendar this Autumn. There is so much on at this time of the year, from being spooked at any of the many Halloween parties, to London Cocktail Week, Diwali celebrations and plenty more of action in town.
Some of the things to do in London this Autumn are:
Experience the spookier side of London
While Halloween is a major celebration in the US, it is not as popular across the pond in the UK. Still, it is slowly becoming more popular in the country with London playing host to some of the biggest bashes in the UK. Belushi’s is a fabulous place to enjoy a full–blown Halloween Party in the city. With knockout cocktails, Halloween booze specials; live DJs and the works, it is one of the best venues to celebrate Halloween in style. Visitors can attend dressed in your best Halloween costume with prizes for the best–dressed costume. Belushi’s has several branches across the city!
Check out some of the top natural facades in West London
West London has some wonderful homes and they look even more splendid during Autumn. Their facades are draped in multicoloured flower vines that make them a stunningly beautiful sight. Some of the top places to check out are Curzon Street in chic Mayfair, South Kensington’s Kynance Mews and Marylebone’s attractive Wimpole Street. For more natural splendour head to Richmond Park with its colourful autumnal foliage and watch out for the deer as well!
Enjoy the fireworks display on bonfire night
The 5th of November is Guy Fawkes Night more commonly called Bonfire Night. It commemorates the disastrous attempt by Guy Fawkes to try and blow up the Parliament in 1605. There are numerous fire–displays held across the city at different locations. These include Crystal Palace Park, Victoria Park and Morden Park among many other locations in London. The weather gets rather chilly at that time of the year, so visitors need to wear something warm, grab a piping hot cup of chocolate or brew and enjoy the spectacle of colour across the London skyline.
Visit Kew Gardens
While Kew Gardens are stunning to visit in summer, autumn is also a wonderful time to drop in. The Royal Botanical Gardens of Kew are a popular attraction with visitors all through the year. In autumn there are a number of art exhibits on display. This Autumn there is the Down Under II and The Florilegium art events scheduled to be held at the gardens. These art events highlight the beauty of nature in all its natural glory. Visitors can head to Kew Gardens on the District Line.
