London is a superb city, there’s no doubt about it. Whether you’re travelling from abroad or in the UK looking for a domestic holiday this year, you’ll be sure to find something for you in London this autumn. Perhaps you’re looking for a little retreat before the hustle and bustle of Christmas, or just fancy enjoying the view of the golden-orange trees in the city – either way, London is a perfect choice.
Are you, or a friend, a serious bookworm? Then you may enjoy the London Literature Festival at the Southbank Centre. Back for its eleventh year, this occasion will feature acclaimed authors, poets, speakers and collaborators for 20 days of wordy events. Featuring live readings, talks and workshops from the likes of author Philip Pullman, acclaimed photographer Annie Leibovitz and the Man Booker Prize nominees. At the end of October, Rebecca Solnit is doing a talk as part of this festival with A-lister Tom Hanks, who will be reading from his first published short story collection. Definitely not one to miss this autumn!
Speaking of books, 20 years ago you may have been reading ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’. Feeling old yet? Well, not to worry – this autumn you can embrace this fact in style with the British Library who are holding a celebratory exhibition – Harry Potter: A History of Magic – transforming each room around a Hogwarts subject. You can find out more on the British Library website.
Maybe you need something to brighten yourself up a bit while preparing for the cold, so how about some jazz?

Fans of music and culture will truly enjoy watching this central figure to the London jazz scene.
