An electric energy buzzes through London in the fall. Starting with the lively fireworks on Bonfire Day until the sparkling display over the River Thames on New Year’s Eve, the action is nonstop, from blockbuster musicals to brand-new galleries, cozy jazz bars, and unique experiences that you can find only in London.
London is a modern city where trends are set and the latest fashions are made; it’s a place where cutting-edge cool meets centuries old grace in the flash of a Tube ride. This diverse mix supplies endless events and new openings, such as the unveiling of the worldclass Darwin Centre at the Natural History Museum last month, which is one of the only science-in-action experiences of its kind.
London’s dining scene has come a long way from fish and chips-today you’re as likely to put vinegar on your fries as you are to savor impeccably fresh sushi prepared by some of the world’s best chefs. Get your taste buds up to speed at the first-ever, city-wide London Restaurant Festival (Oct. 8-13). The six-day event will feature a diverse range of eateries, menus, and events.
