Things to Do in London This Summer

Things to Do in London This Summer

When the gray skies clear, London comes into its own. City parks and walkways bloom between May and September, and the warmer temperatures lead to long days of exploration. Here are some fun ways to see London and the surrounding area in summer.

  • Visit the lavish State Rooms of Buckingham Palace and see the Changing of the Guard ceremony. The Queen's private residence is open to the public from the end of July through September.

  • Watch a show in the West End, the heart of London's theater district. The options are endless, but classics such as Les Misérables and The Phantom of the Opera should be at the top of your list.

  • Take sightseeing to new heights and ride a loop on the London Eye. Set on the curve of the River Thames, the iconic Ferris wheel is loved for its unbeatable panoramas over London.

  • See where the Harry Potter magic happens with the Warner Bros. Studio Tour. The north London studio is home to props, sets, and costumes featured in the films.

  • Head out of the capital and into the countryside to see Britain's most mysterious set of stones. UNESCO-listed Stonehenge is at its best in the summer months, when you can walk around the prehistoric stones without shivering from the cold.
