It may be raining cats and dogs today, but there’s no denying it – summer is
around the corner! As one of the most vibrant cities in the world, London is
full of fun events and excursions perfect to explore on your own or with your
family. Here are our top picks:
Enjoy fresh air at Hyde Park
Hyde park is where Londoners truly get to relax. Whether you love to race
boats on the lake, marvel at art at the Serpentine Gallery, stroll through the
beautiful rose garden or wave at the Royals at Kensington Palace – there’s
something for everyone. Make sure you’re prepared for summer weather.
Wear clothing to protect yourself from the sun and enjoy plenty of food and
Day (and night) at the Museums
Did the English summer surprise you with downpour? London looks just as
beautiful on a wet day. But if the weather isn’t optimal for taking in the city
sights, we love going to wide array of museums and galleries around town. For
kids (and the kids at heart!), be in the same space as dinosaurs at the Natural
History Museum and then go next door to let your inner scientist play at the
Science Museum. See breath taking art and history at the V&A and see the
world’s best exhibitions at the National Gallery. Some museums are open late
– so night owls should keep an eye on their special events!
Party at the Notting Hill Carnival
The second largest carnival in the world never disappoints. Join the most fun
and colourful party in town over the August bank holiday weekend. There are
events suitable for kids and adults every day. Check out the route to find the
best viewing spot and have the time of your life.
…and don’t forget!
As a man and van company, we know that summer is the busiest time of the
year to move. So if you’re looking or planning to move between June and
September, make sure you plan ahead so that you have enough time to make
the most of summer in London. For information and free advice on how to organise a seamless move, get in touch with your favourite moving company today.
