5 Reasons to Visit London in September

Here are our 5 reasons to visit London this month of September. Click on the titles or images of each event for more information.

The Royal Parks, across London.

Take advantage of the long summer days to visit one of the many breathtaking parks in the city. As we all know, London wouldn't be the same without its beautiful parks, and summer is the best time to visit them! From the perfectly trimmed hedges of Regent's Park to the rugged centennial oaks of Richmond Park, the park selection couldn't be any better. Hyde Park is another wonderful "green lung" of the city, and if you get lost deep enough you can't even feel that you are in a 12million people metropolis!

Buckingham Palace Opening and Diamonds: A Jubilee Celebration, London.
31st July and 7th October 2012

This year Queen Victoria celebrated her Diamond Jubilee. In recognition of this, Buckinham Palace will be displaying some of her perosnal jewels both acquired and inheritied. It will outline how diamonds have been used by British monarchs in the last 200 years. As part of this celebration Buckinham Palace has extended its summer opening til early October. You will also be able to visit The Royal Mews, the most beautiful working stables to be seen! Become a witness of life in Royalty this summer at Buckingham Palace. The palace is a mere 10 minutes' walk from The Cavendish London.

The atmopsphere is going to be Jubilant with massive crowds expected to line the bank of the Thames to see the amazing firework finale, that ends the festival with a big bang.

The Great River Race, London.

Starting at London's Docklands and making its way upstream towards Ham, 300 boats with around 2,000 participants will be competing for one of 35 trophies up for grabs. It is regarded as the boat equivalent of the maqrathon and will be celebreated with festivities along the bank at Richmond, along with the usual live music, children's beach, donkey rides and stalls serving hot and cold food and beverages. The race will start at 10.30am and will culminate at Ham with an "oar-inspiring" party. 

Staying at The Cavendish London, London.

The Cavendish London is an amazing place for a great summer break in the city. We are in a privileged location in the centre of London, just a few minutes' walk from Piccadilly Circus, Green Park and Buckingham Palace. If you're willing to visit the Summer Opening of the palace, we are a great option to stay in. We are also within walking distance to Leicester Square and the West End, which makes catching a musical easy and convenient.
