The Best Of London’s What’s On

Many of you got in touch about the possibility of our hosting walking events shortly, but this is now on hold due to the newly revised social restrictions of not more than 6 people meeting up.

So whilst we hang on that bit longer we had another good look at what’s on in London at the moment. Here are some of our top picks, which include a mixture of places to visit in-person or online.

1. London Mural Festival – throughout September
The first of its kind, this street art festival looks amazing (above photo: Mr.Cenz, London Mural Festival, 233 Holmesdale Rd SE25 6PR). A feast for the eyes, this art movement of new large scale murals painted on suburban houses, city centres and cultural hubs, is well worth seeing.
