London is amazing all year round, but in Summer it’s even more special. The city really comes to life and there’s always something to do, no matter your budget! Here are the top 5 things to do in London during the summer months.
Walk down the Thames
Whenever I’m in London, I make sure I have time to walk down the Thames, starting at Tower Bridge and ending at the Houses of Parliament (and then onto a pub). It’s the best way to see London; especially on a sunny day. You can see all of the sights at once and there’s just something about the area that feels special. There’s also a lot going on, whether it’s a book fair, street performers or a custom-made beach, Southbank is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in London. You can also pop into the Tate Modern while you’re there.
One of the things London is most famous for is tennis. Seeing a game of tennis at Wimbledon with a glass of Pimms is one of the most British things you can do. And with Wimbledon Hospitality 2020 packages available, you can make the most out of your visit.
Go on a pub crawl
One of the easiest ways to get to know all of the different areas in London, is to visit their pubs! There’s an area for everyone, whether you fancy Camden, Shoreditch or Soho, or if you’re feeling flush, what about Chelsea? In Central London you’ll find countless historic pubs, or if you fancy something a little more trendy you can head East. There are so many pubs with beer gardens you’ll be spoilt for choice.
London hosts a number of music festivals and special gigs throughout the summer, including ones hosted in parks – ideal for a warm summers day! Check this list for summer gigs in London.
See a Shakespeare play at The Globe
The Globe theatre doesn’t have a roof, and it’s mainly standing, so summer is the best time to go. Every summer The Globe hosts an array of Shakespeare plays, and if you travel to London they are a must see! You can pay extra for a seat, but it’s much cheaper if you stand.
