Autumn has well and truly arrived in London. The trees are looking beautiful showing their spectacular colours in all their glory. Red, amber, and gold leaves carpeting the floor – a promise of the colder weather to come. The Royal Parks are the perfect place to see the beautiful displays of this majestic season. Wrap up warm and take a stroll straight from the lobby of The Bentley Hotel across to Hyde Park for an escape from London’s city life. Enjoy this haven of green space as you take one of the many trails that pass through the park, admiring the calming presence of the Serpentine. Nothing says autumn better then warming your hands on a delicious creamy hot chocolate, surrounded by nature, so make sure to add the Serpentine Bar & Kitchen to your route and plan a little treat!
Some people may say that the downfall of this delightful season are the darker nights, but here in London we love the chance to explore the capital lit up by night. Arguably, this is when London comes to life! Plus, the darker skies give us the perfect backdrop to enjoy light displays and fireworks events.
Have you had chance to explore the largest public art commission in the world yet? This autumn is the perfect time to enjoy the Illuminated River display. You can download a map here and find out other ways that you can tour this special event. Completed in 2019, the 3.2 miles of illuminated art celebrate the key role that London’s bridges continue to play as part of the capital’s identity, linking the whole city together. See all nine bridges uniquely lit in a special tribute to London.
If you don’t fancy walking, then the London by Night open-top double-decker tours allow you to see all the top sights, from the iconic Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament through to Tower Bridge. It’s a wonderful way to see London in under 2 hours and experience the joys of an open top bus.
