Make the most out of the last – and longest – weekend in August (Saturday August 29 - Monday August 31 2020). Bank Holidays may not feel quite the same in this new normal world, but thanks to the ingenuity and sheer grit from London creatives and event organisers there’s still plenty of things to do and see. Now lockdown’s eased, why not jump into a London lido or snooze in a big old London park. Or, join one of the many events still taking place this year, like the virtual Notting Hill Carnival, Greenwich Docklands International Festival - south London’s annual celebration of outdoor theatre, or have a mosey around The British Museum, which is open again after being closed for its longest period in history. You’ve gained this extra day off, after all, so make it count.
