The 6 Best Things About London in the Autumn

We’re now well into one of the loveliest times of year in London – autumn. If you’re getting ready for a visit, pack your stylish scarves and water-proof shoes, and take a look at why autumn is such a great season here in the capital.

  1. Park prettiness
    Hyde Park and Hampstead Heath are the best to visit if you only have a short time, with Regents Park and Kew Gardens following closely behind if you can swing it. The autumnal foliage and breathtaking range of rusty colours on display will make you want to frolic with the squirrels.
  1. Squirrel season
    Actually, we think squirrels deserve a point all of their own. Visitors to this city just love seeing the grey furry scamps flitting around the parks, letting you get just close enough for the perfect Instagram photo before scampering off. Adorable.

  1. Everyone goes inside
    The days get colder and shorter, so the incredible cultural venues of London ramp things up a notch. There are new exhibitions to see, musicals to watch, plays and gigs to go to… check out 19 of the most unmissable events in London this Autumn 2016, from Time Out. This is also a great reason to stay in a stylish serviced apartment, where you can spend your time cozied up with a good book if you so choose (because you’ll feel so much more at home than in a uniform hotel room!)
  1. Fireworks!
    Remember, remember, there’s plenty of fun to be had after dark on Guy Fawkes night, and later on in November there’s the Lord Mayors Show (also involving fireworks).

  2. Festival frenzy
    If you think summer is the only time we do festivals in London, think again! Autumn has the London Jazz Festival, Bloomsbury Festival, London Comic Con, Regent Street Motor Show and the London Restaurant Festival – not to mention Halloween!

  3. Coats, scarves and boots
    Everyone knows: London does autumn fashion best. Gawk at some of the city’s best dressed from your Marylebone apartment, get inspired, then hit the shops!

See you soon!
