Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
London is great for visitors all year round – our awesome museums, galleries and theatres don’t have a seasonal lull and the capital’s nightlife and restaurant scene blazes brightly from January to December but you’ll need to tailor some activities to the season. Autumn is a good time to enjoy crisp walks, cosy pubs and fireworks. In November and December, you can hit up an ice rink and gawp at magical Christmas lights, while summer is peak time for outdoor festivals. But remember, London’s weather sure is unpredictable, so you’d be wise to pack an umbrella whatever time of year you hit town.
