The weather’s turned, and though we’re still being treated to days of blue skies and sunshine, there’s a definite nip in the air. With autumn here, where are the best places to visit in London and where should you stay? We’ve picked our favourite places to visit in London in the autumn and highlighted where you should look for a London serviced apartment/apart hotel to stay in. And we’ve considered Covid too, so don’t worry!
· Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew are wonderful all year around. However, in autumn you are treated to a splendid display of the changing seasons, especially in the arboretum. You can book an additional timeslot for the Children’s Garden, ensuring the youngest members of the family have a safe and enjoyable trip to Kew too. Where to stay? The best area to book your London apartment for visiting Kew is in Richmond.
· Enjoy live classical music at St Martin-in-the-Fields
If you’ve missed live classical performances then you’ll be thrilled to know that you can enjoy live socially distanced performances as part of the re:connect series at St Martin-in-the-Fields. Where to stay? The ideal spot for your London weekend apartment, close to St Martin-in-the-Fields, is in or close to Trafalgar Square.
· Wander along Regent’s Canal
Indulge in the Little Venice to Camden walk and you’ll see a different side of London life, and it’s at its best in autumn. If you like, you can even hire a day boat. Where to stay? We recommend you stay in Camden. You can then also make the most of Camden’s market and own distinct culture.
· Relax in Kensington Palace Gardens
Kensington Palace Gardens are wonderful throughout the year, but with their mature trees, they really look regal in the autumn months. With the Diana Memorial Playground for children, or a romantic stroll along the Serpentine, this is a lovely place to be. Where to stay? Kensington, home of the rich and famous, has plenty of London apartment rentals perfect for visiting Kensington Gardens.
· Glide through Hyde Park
Hyde Park is another London park which really gains vibrancy in the colours of autumn. You can even ride horses here and that’s a brilliant way to gain a rosy autumnal glow to your cheeks! If it’s not too chilly, you could hire a boat. Where to stay? South Kensington is a good spot to stay in for visiting Hyde Park and many of the London museums which have safely opened.
· Enjoy time at Greenwich
There is a lot to do in Greenwich from the Royal Observatory to the National Maritime Museum. To walk from one to the other, you can walk through the glorious-in-autumn Greenwich Park. Standing up at the top of the hill you can enjoy wonderful views over London. Where to stay? There are lots of apartments to stay in within Greenwich itself, which are perfect for exploring everything that the area has to offer. Obviously, to make the most of the autumnal colours, you’ll want to enjoy outdoor spots in London which are more naturally Covid-secure. However, if you want to visit indoor attractions, don’t feel nervous. Look for the Good to Go logo and you can rest assured that it’s a safe place to visit, despite Covid.
