From those arriving here for professional reasons to families hoping to experience sights such as Big Ben and Trafalgar Square for the first time, London certainly does not disappoint. Let's take a quick look at some of the most popular attractions according to each season of they year. This will provide a bit of much- needed insight if you happen to be contemplating a trip in the near future.

London's Seasonal Delights: Experiencing the City Throughout the Year


Although the weather outside can be less than accommodating on occasion, London still heats up in terms of the attractions that it offers. For example, it is always possible to spend a day indoors experiencing sights such as the Natural History Museum or strolling the ancient halls of Westminster Abbey. If you happen to be arriving during the holiday season, be sure to check out the Harry Potter Exhibition at Warner Bros. Studio and to take a Christmas Lights bus tour.


London certainly comes to life in the spring. As residents begin to emerge after the dark winter months, the attractions likewise abound. This is also arguably the best time to soak up outdoor attractions. The Tower Bridge, attending the annual Foodies Festival (held in late May) and cruising down the River Thames on a day-long boat tour are all possibilities to keep in mind. Thankfully, the best aparthotels in London employ knowledgeable staff members who can provide even more tips and tricks. Be sure to take advantage of such an opportunity!


London can represent your best friend when the mercury outside begins to rise. Did you know that London is considered to be one of the greenest cities on the planet? This is due in large part to the number of parks that visitors can enjoy. Here are some popular locations:
- Regent's Park
- Battersea Park
- London Fields
- Greenwich Park

It is also possible to rent bicycles on a daily basis; yet another way to enjoy an up-close-and-personal view of the city itself.


Autumn is yet another popular time to consider a visit to London. Not only is it generally cheaper to book reservations during this time of the year (as opposed to the height of the summer), but there are many seasonal attractions to enjoy for the first time. One excellent idea involves visiting any one of the parks mentioned above in order to witness the bright colours associated with autumn trees and shrubbery. Other suggestions include obtaining panoramic views of the city atop the famous London Eye and celebrating London Oktoberfest; a great way to have a bit of fun and even to make a few new friends.

Regardless of when you plan on visiting London, there is little doubt that this city will impress throughout the year. The holiday of a lifetime could be only moments away!
