London’s Summer Highlights: Must-Do Activities for an Unbeatable Season

July 18, 2023

Time to bring out your summer wardrobe as the hot season is already here!

Summers in London are the best. The hot sun peeking through clouds and the warm summery winds gives us a refreshing break from the long winter season. This hot weather always calls for fun and action. Spending this season in London is truly a one-of-a-kind experience as there are numerous new adventures and unforgettable activities waiting for you. 

Without much further ado, let’s begin with the list of things you can experience in the hot season;

  1. Ride the Airline Cable Car

Look at London from a different yet breathtaking perspective with its airline cable car. It covers the city's classic tourist spots, including St. Pauls’s Cathedral, Canary Wharf, The O2, the Shard, Maritime Greenwich, the Thames Barrier, and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

  1. Kyoto Garden – Your Quick Getaway to Japan

This place is a treat for West Londoners looking for a break from chaotic city life to breathe in some fresh air. The Park and the cool Asian Koi carp that flows all around the vicinity cool you off during the hot day and keep you entertained with the in-park activities.


  1. Visit the Soho Square

Known for its nightlife and popular pubs, Soho Square is lively and perfect for you to cool down after a hot day. It’s a perfect spot to absorb London’s true beauty in a glimpse. This square also houses the Football Association and the British Board of Film. 

  1. Glide with Aquatics

Discover the magical underwater world at Horniman Museum's Aquarium. The aquarium showcases aquatics fauna from around the globe. You will not only see the majestic creatures living and moving but will also be able to learn about their interesting lives and fascinating transformation over the years.

  1. Experience the Lunar Festival

As London is largely populated by Asian immigrants, the UK metropolis is also seen participating in this famous Chinese festivity. The vibrant and loud celebrations usually take place in the Charing Cross Road, make their way through Shaftesbury Avenue, and end the parade in Trafalgar Square.

  1. Madame Tussauds London

Head to Madame Tussauds if you’re up for some fun and surprises! This wax museum attracts 2.5 million tourists and visitors all year round and displays global realistic wax sculptures of global stars. From world leaders to movie stars and musical masters, you will find phenomenal wax sculptures of them all. 

  1. The Harry Potter Tour

Calling out all the Harry Potter fans because this tour would be their dream come true. This 150-minute tour starts from the Diagon Alley all the way through the Leaky Cauldron, and Platform 9.

In a nutshell

The above list is a very tiny quantum of the number of activities you can experience in London. But if you want to keep it short and tight, visiting these spots would be more than enough for you

If you are looking for a hotel to stay in during your summer vacation in London, I recommend Park City Grand Plaza London. This hotel is located in central London and offers a variety of amenities, including free Wi-Fi, fitness centers, and restaurants.
