What are you planning to do this autumn? In and around London, there’s never a shortage of amazing things to do, see and experience, whether you are a local or an international visitor to the British capital. Plan it right, with the help of an AA executive London chauffeur driven car from AA Chauffeurs, and you have the recipe for a great few days out.
Never mind the classic attractions of seeing the sights from Buckingham Palace to St Paul’s cathedral, or shopping and star spotting on Bond Street. We’re talking about seasonal events, that demonstrate some really original ideas with unrepeatable experiences.
Fancy a trip around some of the capital’s landmark buildings and structures, places where you would never normally be allowed? Then Open House London is for you. On just one weekend a year, this year the 16 and 17 September, you can visit a quirky mix of 800 places, including the Gherkin office tower in the City of London, the Shard, and even some interesting private homes. It’s a free event, though some locations require pre-booking.
Perhaps you love American football and watch games from the NFL on your TV? Well, once a year you can get to watch an NFL game live, in London at Wembley stadium or Twickenham rugby ground. This year, four matches will take place. Expect some razzmatazz before the game, too.
Alternatively, maybe it is nature that you want to connect with. Autumn brings with it a fabulous change of leaf colours, before they fall from many of London’s trees. And where better to enjoy those wonderful reds and browns, than in one of London’s great green expanses, such as Richmond Park, Kew Gardens or Greenwich Park – guaranteed to be an uplifting experience.
If books are your thing, then there’s the London Literature Festival, running from mid October into the beginning of November. For 20 days, the South Bank will be filled with authors, speakers and poets, presenting and sharing their passion. Photographer Annie Leibovitz and author Philip Pullman are among confirmed participants.
And if you like your martini shaken, not stirred, then London Cocktail Week beckons. A week-long event at the beginning of October, this is the event to get to, if you love the variety of cocktails and want to be sure you pick up the latest taste trends before everyone else.
To ensure you get the most out of what London has to offer, don’t forget to plan your trip – and consider hiring an AA executive London chauffeur driven car to get you there and back. London is a large, busy place, and with unpredictable weather, and busy public transport, finding your destination can be at least a chore, and at worst a challenge. An AA executive London chauffeur driven car from AA Chauffeurs will cost you less than you think, and makes for speedy and convenient transport to and from your chosen destination. Enjoy London!
