3 Things You Must Experience in London During the Summer



If you consider traveling anywhere throughout the course of summer 2019, let it be London. There are a plethora of things to see, do, and experience throughout the months of June, July, and August in England’s capital city, whether the sun comes out to play or not!

 

Here are three of the things you cannot afford to miss when you travel to London during the summer months.

 

Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships

 

Even if you’re not necessarily a big fan of tennis (or even sport in general), a trip to Wimbledon should sit pretty on your London summer bucket list. Whether you indulge in VIP Wimbledon Hospitality or whether you just head to the grounds to sample the electric atmosphere, a trip to this sporting event will be sure to be one that you never forget.

 

If you want to book your place on a Wimbledon hospitality package, you’re going to need to act quickly. With just a few months left before the action kicks off and a waiting list ten years in the making, if you and your party want the best seats in the house, it’s imperative that you get everything sorted now. If you don’t and you do, in fact, miss out on Wimbledon this year, fear not, as the event will be back in 2020.

 

Buckingham Palace

 

The Palace may be there for all to see (from the outside, at least) come rain or shine all year long, but if you want to take a peep inside the official London residence of the Queen, then you need to visit it during the summer time. From July right the way through to October, Buckingham Palace opens up its doors to the general public. Before summer 2019 is over, you could very well find yourself exploring the State Rooms and checking out the Royal Collection’s most lavish treasures.

 

A few things that you can expect to see when you venture inside Buckingham Palace during the summer include:

 

  • Paintings by a number of infamous artists, including Rembrandt, Poussin, and Claude

  • Sculpture created by none other than Chantrey

  • The world’s greatest collection of Sèvres porcelain

 

London’s top music festivals

 

If you’re more into music than you are sport or art, then traveling to London during the summer months should be a no-brainer for you. This is because London plays host to some of the world’s very best music festivals throughout June, July, and August. Come the summertime, England’s capital is quite simply awash with artists and stages left, right, and center!

 

Some of the best summer festivals to grace the London music scene include:

 

  • Barclaycard presents British Summer Time

  • Lovebox

  • Wireless

  • Citadel

  • Meltdown

  • Field Day

  • South West Four

  • All Points East

  • KISSTORY on the Common

 

If you’re lucky enough to find yourself in London throughout summer 2019, then you should make it your mission to experience as many of the events listed above as you can. If you do, you will be sure to make memories with your friends that last a lifetime.
