The great thing about a visit to London is that’s there’s always something to see and do. During the warmer months of the year however, the city really starts to come alive with an even bigger array of amazing outdoor events and activities on offer for all ages and interests.
With our boutique hotels in London giving you an ultra convenient, centrally located perfect base for your stay, all that’s left to do is to decide which of these fantastic springtime activities you’ll want to experience first. Read on to discover our top picks of what to do in Central London over the next eight weeks.
RHS Chelsea Flower Show
Spring has well and truly sprung with summer just peeking its head around the corner, so what better way to spend a day in London than with a visit to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show for a true celebration of all things spring?
Starting on the 21st of May 2019, the event will see 500 exhibitors showcasing their prize-winning blooms in a spectacular array of colours and varieties in the heart of Chelsea. You’re not far away from this iconic event when staying at our boutique hotels in London.
London Craft Week
Taking place at locations throughout Central London, London craft week allows you to try your hand at artisan crafts including pottery, printmaking and dressmaking as well as offering a wide range of talks and workshops to enjoy during your stay.
If you’re a fan of fashion, this is certainly one not to be missed as many events bring together gifted up and coming designers for a little wardrobe inspiration. If your skills aren’t up to making your own clothes just yet, then our hotels near Harrods London give you the opportunity for a little luxury retail therapy and show you the latest trends for spring/summer 2019.
The Chelsea Fringe
If you’ve shopped ‘til you’ve dropped before returning to one of our hotels near Harrods London, then you might want to spend the remainder of the day at a slightly slower pace.
The 21st May 2019 heralds the start of a nine-day festival of all things green and garden-like at the Chelsea Fringe Festival and it offers several free events for visitors of all ages and gardening abilities.
Museums at night
If you’re lucky enough to be staying at one of our boutique hotels in London between the 15th and 18th of May 2019, then you won’t want to miss the May edition of Museums at Night, an amazing opportunity to visit some of London’s most iconic museums after the sun has set.
Featuring an array of talks, new exhibitions exploring our nation’s culture and heritage plus the ability to see some of London’s best-known historic buildings lit up against the night sky, this is truly a unique way to visit a museum. It is a must if you’ll be in the city during these dates as it gives you some excellent evening entertainment either before or after you’ve dined at the hotel restaurant.
