Woah there, don’t pull on those slippers just yet. September gets a bad rep as the chilly harbinger of winter but it’s still pretty warm out. Forget burying yourself away and dive into a whole treasure trove of amazing autumn events instead. From the last of the night markets and music festival finales, to the month-long Totally Thames festival and wonderful Open House weekend, pack a brollie (just in case) and get stuck in.
Our September 2017 highlights
The annual Open House London weekend gives Londoners the chance to explore behind the closed doors of some of the capital's biggest, most renowned and most secret venues for free. This is your chance to explore a bit of hidden London and have a poke around some of London's best buildings – but it's not just about being nosy, there are also loads of walks and tours to bring the buildings alive.

Villandry - St. James's
An all-day restaurant and café, this is one of two Villandry venues in London - there's another in Bicester Village, too. It's open from breakfast through to dinner, with weekend brunches and afternoon teas completing the all-day offer. The food ranges from sea bass ceviche starters to Mediterranean mezze platters, artisan cheeseboards, Waldorf salads and grilled sea bass served with artichoke, broad beans, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, green beans and quail eggs. A varied cocktail list is available, too. Keep an eye out for a fancy weekend brunch, offering unlimited Champagne within a two hour window.
