August’s Super Seven things to do in London

The “5 ring” madness starts tomorrow, and are you ready? London is busier than ever since Brexit, with many people either not wanting to go away, or tourists coming to London taking advantage of the weak pound. Either way, London is buzzing with or without the sun.

1. Watch the Olympics LIVE on the beach in London.  The Olympic park has beached itself up, as has the Southbank.. but check out other locations HERE

2. Night of Festivals : 6-7 August. More London / City Hall /Tower Bridge – over to Potters Park.  An evening of Brazilian carnival to celebrate the opening of the Rio Olympics. I’m going!

Kids Week starts 1-31 August.  Which means Kids go free with one paying adult.  Check out HERE shows participating, but this is such a great economical opportunity to see those shows on your to do list!

3. Great Fire of London exhibition is on until 2 September.  Learn about the history of this fire, that started in a little bakery, located at the site of Monument – this used to be central London.

4. Travel Photographer of the Year 2015.  I love to travel and maybe one day, I’d like to dream about achieving an image like some of these.  At the University of Greenwich, you will have more to enjoy than just photographs, with all that architectural beauty.

5. Natural History Museum : Colour & Vision. This 5* exhibition is totally up my street, I’m desperate to go on a 565 million journey through the eyes of nature. Understand how colours have evolved, and how we see them. The queues could be the only downside. Paid exhibition until 6 November. Click HERE

6. BFG Dream Jars : I know I’ve told you already about these, but they are such a joy to find, and the film is brilliant – do both! It’s a wonderful way to discover London with children, who aren’t chasing Pokemon.

7. Buckingham Palace Summer opening until 2 October : A wonderful opportunity to enjoy the most famous Palace in London, and see the Queen’s Coronation robes in the Exhibition of 90 years of style. 

Extras

1. Rooftop Film Clubs: Locations all over London to watch a film of your choice. Check the listings of locations HERE

2. Film4 at Somerset House: A fantastic location to hang out and watch your film of choice, just be sure to take something comfortable to sit on…

3. Notting Hill Carnival : 28-29 August. Could Rio be it’s inspiration this year, and make it bigger and better than ever? Teenagers & kids alike love it.
