Top 5 events this Spring in London
If you’re lucky enough to be spending time in London this Spring, now is the time to make a checklist of events not to miss! The city itself is beautiful in this season, especially when the sun comes out. But once you’ve settled into your serviced apartment and are done with strolling through St James’ Park admiring the early Spring cherry blossom, you’ll want something more structured to do. Maybe you’re in the city for a break with your family, or perhaps you’re in town on business and have a few hours to spare here and there. Whatever brings you to this great city, take a look at our pick of events that will give you a stay to remember!
1. For Families
London is full of attractions for kids of all ages. So if you’re checking into a serviced apartment with your family you will never be wanting for something fun to keep everyone entertained. However, for something a bit different and exclusive, check out the London Games Festival. Taking place from 2nd to 14th April across multiple venues, events include exhibitions and interactive game play. Saturday 6th April sees a gaming costume parade in the City of London which offers gaming and crafts. Then your family can try out emerging games at Now Play This, running from 6th to 14th April at Somerset House.
2. For Foodies
Your concierge service at your luxury serviced apartment can book your restaurant table for everyday gastronomic delight. However, if you love all things culinary and want a special event, head into central London on Saturday 20th April. The office of the Mayor of London lays on the annual Feast of St George event in Trafalgar Square. From midday to 6pm, live music mixes with traditional and international foods, artisan crafts and family friendly activities.
3. For Culture Vultures
London is a super-cultural city. The wealth of museums, art galleries and theatres mean that should you find yourself at a loose end on any day of the week there will be something to see. And your serviced apartment concierge can advise on the best shows. For the pick of the unusual in cabaret, comedy and emerging arts, however, there’s no better Springtime place than the Underbelly festival on the South Bank. Opening with a Gala performance on 5th April, this site near to the Royal Festival Hall teems with life for the sunshiny months and is a great environment to try something new.
4. For Sports Fans
Sometimes watching sport beats access to a top quality gym from your serviced apartment. If you’re staying in London over Sunday 28th April, take to the streets to watch the London Marathon. With 26.2 miles of the course, there are plenty of places to spectate from and the city comes alive in support of more than 40,000 runners. This carnival atmosphere turns the event into something more than just a race.
5. For Corporates
Corporate team building is a huge part of modern business travel. When you may only see some colleagues in the flesh for a limited time during a business trip to London, it’s important to take on an activity out of the office. So check out The Crystal Maze Live Experience. This hot ticket is installing itself in London’s Trocadero in Piccadilly Circus as we speak, opening on March 29th. It promises to be bigger, better and more exciting and is an unbeatable option for corporate events.
It can’t be denied that Spring weather in London can be… unpredictable! So some days it’s tempting to stay home and enjoy the spacious calm of your luxury serviced apartment. But with so many events on offer, we hope there’s something to entice you out! If you want to fill a whole weekend, or just a couple of hours between meetings you’ll find something truly memorable in the city. All that’s left is for us to hope for dry weather!
