Reality and Virtual Reality in London.
August and September are good months to visit London, it’s quieter, the visitor peak has passed and many Londoners are away on holiday. The weather is generally warm and pleasant.
Here are a few other good reasons for coming then.
You can visit the State Rooms of Buckingham Palace – they are open to visitors in August and September. Sorry, you won’t meet the Queen, but don’t let that deter you, this magnificent palace alone is worth coming to London to see.
Have you ever wanted to sail on a Tall Ship? You can between 15-18 September. Greenwich, a must see for many London visitors, has an added attraction then. A number of these majestic Tall Ships will be at historic Greenwich and available for you to have a 2-2½ hour cruise down and back up the Thames.
The much acclaimed Rolling Stones Exhibition – Exhibitionism is at the Saatchi Gallery on The Kings Road until 4 September. A must for old and young rockers alike!
The Notting Hill Carnival 28th-29th August. Join London’s biggest street party as the Notting Hill Carnival fills the streets of West London with Caribbean colours, music and flavours.
London is the hangout for the rarest Pokémon. Tentacool, Dratini, Electabuzz, Hitmonlee, Kabuto, Mankey, Snorlax, Mr. Mime and even the occasional Dragonite have been found at places like the Tower of London, inside Regent’s Park, at London Zoo and in the flowery gardens of Kensington Palace. Here are several guides: Time Out, Attaction Tix and Evening Standard.
For a family of four, the cost of two rooms in a good 4 star London hotel is a minimum £400/night. For half that sum they can stay in one of our comfortable rental properties with much more space and benefit from our full concierge service. Check it out.
