Start planning for Autumn

Autumn is nearly here, and it's the perfect time to curl up with a cup of hot tea by the roaring fireplace, spend time with friends and family, have long walks and admire sunsets. Is there anything cosier? This is the perfect time to visit London. Lower prices, shorter queues, less crowded places. Envision yourself walking in the charming parks and elegant gardens of London, sipping British tea in a chic café, visiting the British Museum, going to London Fashion week and BFI London Film Festival. Trust me, you won't be short of things to do this autumn.

Gardens & Parks

London's streets will soon turn red and yellow and one of the best places to admire the ever-changing nature is Richmond Park. Embrace the peace and vibrant colours of autumn with a relaxing walk or cycle ride through a mass of trees in Richmond Park. You can enjoy an autumnal walk while admiring the natural wonders and the spectrum of colours. Autumn is chilly and, of course, don't forget the well-renowned British rain. Londoners always have an umbrella; be sure you pack it before visiting the capital. Londoners are blessed with a wide variety of coffee shops with flavours from all around the world, so stop in a café and enjoy a delicious hot chocolate along the way You can see some of our teams' favourite coffee shops in our latest blog here!
