The return of crisp days and cold evenings mean that autumn is well and truly here, but that's no excuse to hibernate. October is all about long leafy walks, pubs with fires, sunday lunches and picking out some of the capital's best fancy dress (for Halloween, of course). So get out there and enjoy London this October with our pick of events happening across the capital, because next thing you know it will be winter and that means a little something called Christmas is fast approaching.
