London in August… I have a ton of reasons why London is fabulous in August. The first is because Football has come home for the first time since 1966. So whilst there will be festivals a plenty, it will be begin with a parade. I’m feeling incredibly proud right now. This will be an August we won’t forget in a hurry.
Enjoy the outdoor dining and views; London even as a few festivals this month, all worth visiting come rain or shine. Always worth remembering is that museums have incredible air conditioning and with some cool exhibitions to see, catch them before they close in September.
If you are planning a trip away in September, check out our blog post on Malta, or the Riviera – both make for a perfect weekend away.
