Autumn is a lovely season to visit London. The days are getting cooler and the nights a little longer but it can still be warm and sunny. Fewer tourists are visiting, the streets are emptier and it is easier to get about, but our fantastic city is always buzzing with life. It may be autumn in London, but there are still plenty of interesting things to do before the frenzy of the Christmas season starts. We’ve been looking around for some great events and here is a selection of our favourites.London Cocktail Week 4th – 13th October Over 250 bars take part in the worlds biggest cocktail festival in London. Download the app and pay £10 to enjoy fruity sweet or sour drinks, depending on your taste.
