London events in September

The best cultural happenings, festivals and other great stuff in London over September 2018

Think that September is just the damp end of summer? Think again. It's still warm enough to enjoy some of outdoor London, pop-ups continue to provide food, booze and fun, and there are tons of great autumn events to enjoy.

There's also the month-long Totally Thames festival to dip into and the annual London Design Festival. Plus, anyone desperate to get indoors can check the excellent Open House London weekend, when over 800 London buildings are opened to the public.
