5 Terrific Things to Do In London This Month: September 2020:
London in September is characterized by city-wide celebrations, festivals, and many fun family activities in the last weeks of summer. Although the pandemic may have slowed things down a bit, Londoners are not turning down the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors while the weather is still warm and partake in different activities happening in the city.
London is always a fun place to be all-year-round, but September is one of the best months to visit as the city marks the end of the summer with music, fashion, and architecture festivals. However, many of these large festivals have been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, so ensure to check the organizer’s website before making any plans.
On the bright side, there are still many paid and free attractions and things to do in London, but with social distancing and other safety measures in place.
Attend a London Festival
There is usually a line of up festivals happening around the city in September. Many of these festivals happen yearly, but with the coronavirus pandemic, many have been cancelled. Notwithstanding, there are still a few small festivals going on but with strict social distancing and UK government guidelines. The London Design Festival is one to look out for with large scale installations and design projects popping up around the city.
Attend a sporting event
The English Premier League is back, but unfortunately, fans are yet to be allowed back into the stadium. But not to worry, you can still be part of the games from the comfort of your home or at the local bar to catch the games with your mates. Another sporting event that creates so much buzz in the city is the Regatta London where you get to watch or partake in the race along the Thames. Regatta London is an annual fundraiser and celebration of paddle sports. The event is cancelled.
Go to the theatre
The West-End is considered the theatre district loaded with world-class plays and musicals. There are usually a good number of productions running in September. The line-up of theatre performances are quite enormous but are a few to go and see – Sleepless the musical at Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre; or go and see Jesus Christ Superstar concert performance at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.
Go crazy golfing at Plonk Golf
