Before we get into the excitement of Christmas there’s this little thing called autumn. The time where the leaves start falling and we cuddle up on the couch with a cosy blanket.

But wait… you don’t have to spend your autumn days (nights) inside…London has a lot to offer …every season.

We’ve put together a list of some of the best events happening in London in October and November 2018 to keep you going as the days get shorter and the nights get colder.
