Summer in London is fun – the city comes alive with festivals of food, culture or just good time bonkers events! The city is so well connected that a visitor is never too far from an amazing event – from a local neighbourhood street market to a huge open air cinematic experience.
London’s choice of alfresco film screenings is bigger than ever for 2014. Big-screen movie showings, with line-ups covering everything from well-loved comedies to cult classics, have popped up for the season and have been really popular during the hot weather.
And the summer weather has been perfect for doing what we Brits do very well – visit the pub! London’s beer gardens are the best – overlooking the Thames, along the Embankment with local ales on tap and fun BBQ’s. Or look up – the best places to kick back, soak in the sun and listen to the capital’s top DJ’s are the rooftops with venues offering the festival vibe in the heart of the city.
But for the culture vultures amongst us – the biggest music festival in London is the Proms. Spanning 3 months, London opens its doors to the greatest orchestras and classical musicians in the world. The big concerts attract big audiences but you can often get standing room space for £5, available on the day. All starts this Friday, 18th July.
