What to do in London in July 2016

Well let’s be honest, the British Summer hasn’t started very well… but not too worry, there is plenty to do in London in July to cheer you up and forget about the weather! We have selected for you the must dos this month.

Let’s start July 2016 with a weekend dedicated to the foodies! The Soho Food Feast will pleased the food addicts who always wanted to try the finest restaurants in Soho. During these two days (Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd) the fundraiser organised for the Parish Primary School will be the occasion for more than 40 restaurants to build up pop up stands and sell the finest tasters of their menus to visitors for only one token each (2£ only). Located in St Anne’s Church, Tube Station Leicester Square. Entry £15.

The biggest event of July will certainly be the British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park 2016. Hoping that the sun will be out, it starts on Monday 4th til Thursday 7th and the event is completely FREE. It will be your only chance to see most of Hyde Park and also the Festival from 100 feet in the air thanks to the Barclaycards Better View Platform built especially for this occasion. Of course you will also find street food stalls, Djs, free activities and so on… Tube Station: South Kensington.


Another week, another type of event at Hampton Court Palace. Maybe not as famous as the Chelsea Flower Show but still very impressive, Hampton Court Palace has its own Flower Show from July 5th to the 10th. Take this opportunity to wander through incredible Garden shows but also thousands of free-flying butterflies in the specially created Butterfly Dome. They have special activities for Family on Saturday. You can find more information on prices and opening times here.


More to come for the end of the month, keep your eyes open!
