Autumn the Perfect Time for a London Travel Adventure

 

If watching the pageantry and excitement of the Olympic Games in London this past summer has whet your appetite to see London in person, why not travel to London this autumn for an enjoyable experience up close and personal? As the leaves on the trees turn stunning shades of gold, red and amber and nightfall comes on quicker, there are plenty of interesting ways to enjoy the unique sights and sounds of Britain's most popular metropolitan area.

                            Hyde Park

London has a series of parks and gardens that are beautiful to browse through in the fall and open free of charge to the public. Check out the opportunities to go horseback riding in Hyde Park, where there are five miles of easy to navigate bridleways, some of them adjacent to the gorgeous Serpentine Lake. If you plan on visiting starting the first week of November, you're in luck to put on your skates and glide around the ice rink that opens annually at the Natural History Museum on the 4th November. From November 4 through November 6, London's parks participate in Bonfire Night with spectacular fireworks displays every evening.

One of the best ways to enjoy the autumn foliage is to schedule a cruise on the River Thames. You'll be able to see numerous historic buildings and other landmarks vital to London's history as you cruise along and you can make it romantic by taking a cruise for two with a special someone. No visit to London would be complete without investing in some Theatre Tickets so you can enjoy some of the best live entertainment available anywhere. You can telephone the theatre box office directly to purchase Theatre Tickets, use an online booking agent such as Theatre Tickets London or work with Encore Tickets, the official partner of London Theatre Online which offers both full price and discount tickets for a wide variety of shows. Dramatic plays range from War Horse and The Waiting Room to Hedda Gabler and Henry V. Musical favourites include Spam lot, Shrek the Musical, Billy Elliot and Les Misérables.

For those who are athletically inclined, put on some walking shoes to explore many of the city's historic districts or take a mountain bike to the Lake and Peak Districts or the Scottish Highlands to be inspired by some of Great Britain's most interesting scenery.
