Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
The whirlwind (okay, more like a cylone) that has been 2020 means that we’re now seeing London with fresh eyes. While at first glance it may seem like your enjoyment of the city is now somewhat restricted under social distancing, there are actually still loads of brilliant things to do in London. From incredible art exhibitions and iconic attractions to secret spots, by day and by night (well, pre-10pm!), there are actually so many amazing things to do in London. This London bucket list (curated by our editors and always hotly debated in the Time Out ‘office’) is a good place to start.
Our city checklist will help you hunt out what’s still happening in London – including some actual real-life events – from hidden happenings to something new at one of London’s landmarks. In the absence of major West End shows, we’ve still got theatre for you to seek out. And without leaving the country you can travel the world through a hundred amazing cuisines. So grab your face mask, get together your group of six and go forth in a London that’s admitedly a little different, but still bursting with opportunities for a great day out.
