When to go to London
Spring and fall. Summer can be humid and crowded. Annual highlights include the Chelsea Flower Show in May; the Wimbledon tennis fortnight in June; the Proms, a series of Royal Albert Hall concerts that run from summer through September; October’s London Film Festival; and Guy Fawkes night on November 5. While in town, act like a Londoner and always have your “brolly to the ready”—there’s a reason U.K. residents talk about the weather so much.
