Things to do in London this autumn!

London City

If you’re planning an autumn excursion to London this year, here’s some activities to get you started!

The nights are becoming darker, the leaves are turning orange and it’s starting to feel a bit spooky. Just because the summer sun is officially behind the clouds doesn’t mean the fun has vanished with it.

Autumn is a month of harvest traditions, spiced lattes and surprisingly, an abundance of funky festivals. Why not keep the seasonal sadness at bay with a trip to the capital? Here’s some suggestions if you’re heading to the big smoke this season.

September 28th Emerge Festival

Imagining a museum after hours has always been an intriguing thought. Emerge Festival is a combination of a nightclub and ‘Night at the Museum’. Dance away to DJ sets, listen to some poetry and watch performances at some of London’s best museums.

 September 29th Japan Matsuri Festival

Not everyone can afford a trip across the pond, the Japan Matsuri Festival brings Japan to you. Celebrating all things Japanese, indulge in the delicate flavours of the cuisine and the not so delicate Martial Arts.
