August in London is here! Take advantage of the sunny weather (fingers crossed) by heading out into London’s great outdoors, exploring the city’s parks and embarking on a scenic walk around the capital. Now that London is gradually beginning to reopen, why not book a table at one of London’s recently reopened restaurants or at a rooftop bar to sink a cocktail against a sun-soaked panorama.
Many of the events and things to do that would usually be taking place in August in London have been postponed and cancelled to ensure event-goer safety. But, London’s brilliant and ever-resourceful artists, performers, experts and craftspeople are still bringing the fun to you. Notting Hill Carnival is going digital this year, as is the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall. If you’re still more comfortable staying in at the moment, there’s plenty of online theatre to watch and restaurants and bars delivering to your door.
Whatever you do always check with the venue or event first before you visit to double-check what safety measures they have in place and if you have to pre-book in advance. Plus, always keep social distancing in mind.
Here’s your guide to the best events and things to do, online and off, in August in London 2020.
