What to do in October 2016 in London

Autumn was a bit shy at the beginning but now it’s behaving as usual. Get your coats ready because we might need them tomorrow ! Whatever the weather, there are always plenty of things to do in London, and even more in October. Here are some suggestions.


New Coffee Shop opening in St. Johns Wood.

Good news for coffee lovers: we will have a new Coffee Shop in the neighborhood! The Ivy Café is opening on 19th October.

Less than a ten minute walk from Danubius Hotel Regents Park, located on 120 St. John’s Wood High Street, this Café, part of the Ivy Collection, will offer all-day dining 7 days a week.You will be delighted with plenty of options starting from breakfast and finishing with cocktails.

We need to highlight that two outdoor dining terraces are available for fresh air addicts.

Ask our Concierge Team for directions.



In 2013 New Yorker pastry chef Dominique Ansel invented the Cronut, a mix between a French croissant and a Donut. Believe it or not, Time magazine named it as one of the “Best Inventions of 2013”.

If you have a sweet mouth, now you have the opportunity to try the original cronut! Dominique Ansel opens his first bakery in London (see more info here).

The closest tube station is Victoria. Please feel free to ask our Concierge Team for directions.


Run for Osteoporosis

After having that many sweets we would suggest doing some exercise.

Hyde Park is the place where the Run will take place on October 22nd. Organized by PB Race Events (find more info here), there will be two distances: 5k and 10k. A donation from each entry will go to The National Osteoporosis Society.

15 minutes bus drive from our Hotel. The closest tube stations are Marble Arch or Lancaster Gate. Feel free to ask our Concierge Team for directions.


Regents Park in October

School Holidays are coming once again. Take advantage of our Family Package to plan your next trip to London (find more information here).

Make the most of the holidays putting the icing on the cake by attending Discover Autumn in Regents Park. The event is taking place just a short walk from the hotel on October the 27th, ask our concierge for directions.

Field Studies Council (FSC) run this event with families in mind. Enjoy part of the School Holidays by taking the chance to learn more about the animals and plants at this lovely landscape. It is time to become a tree and seed expert!
