London in Autumn is a spectacular blend of cosy pubs, healthy harvests and glowing sunsets. It is the perfect time of year for a trip to the city, so grab a scarf and head out to soak up some of London’s Autumn ambiance. We’ve rounded up the best days out and events throughout London in Autumn:
The oldest enclosed Royal Park is a haven for Autumn vibes. You can crunch through fallen leaves, stock up on conkers, and gaze at the gorgeous red deer that roam the park. Bring a picnic and head to the top of hill for a spectacular view across the river Thames.
Up your soup game this Autumn and stock up on seasonal veg at Borough Market. This time of year the stalls are a riot of colour, filled with plump pumpkins, rosy apples and hearty loaves. Warm up while browsing the market stalls with a hot spiced brew from The Cider House, or stop by one of the many takeaway stalls for a hearty dose of comfort food.
Now the Summer holidays are out the way, you can visit one of London’s most famous museums without rabbles of little ones causing lengthy queues and crowded corridors. New to the Natural History Museum is Hope the whale, who has replaced Dippy the diplodocus in the iconic Hintze Hall. The museum has also launched their latest exhibition, Whales: Beneath the surface, where you can explore the lives of whales just like Hope.
Grab your bike (or a Santander Cycle!) and pedal through rust coloured leaves and flowing fields in Richmond Park’s 2500 acres. The West London park is home to over 600 deer, and at this time of the year you may witness the stags clashing antlers in a bid to impress the ladies.
This Autumn, the biggest Broadway musical of the decade, Hamilton, will be heading to London’s West End. Written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the much anticipated show is already sold out, but there is still a chance to get your hands on tickets. There will be two lotteries taking place when the show opens, you can either head to the Victoria Palace Theatre before each performance where an allocated amount of tickets will be available, or take part in a weekly online ballot for performances taking place the following week.
One place to get a real feel for London in Autumn is Kew Gardens. You can climb to the Treetop Walkway and enjoy the Autumn colours across the skyline of 14,000 trees, or stroll through the crowns of Oak trees and enjoy the local birdlife. Guided walking tours are available every day in the Gardens and are completely free to join.
However you choose to spend your time in London this Autumn, be sure to stop in at The Rembrandt to warm up, rest your feet and enjoy some delicious food. Treat yourself to a Traditional Afternoon Tea by the roaring fireplace or join us on a Sunday for a scrumptious Roast lunch in Palette Restaurant. Book a table online, or call us on 020 3740 7145.
