Your 2016 Events Guide to London

During the month of April, in 2016, a person who is paying a visit to London can find himself or herself to be rather occupied if he or she makes the choice to go for the Virgin Money London Marathon or be a part of the celebrations of Record Store Day which are scheduled to be held in the city on the 16th or April and the 24th of April, 2016.

Record Store Day takes people back to the time when discovering new music entailed going through a music store and sifting among CDs to find music which would fit the preferences of the individual.

Training for the marathon can be a gruelling effort, to say the very least but can also be said to be well worth all the time put in. A large number of people pay a visit to the city each year, just to take part in this annual fitness fest. Even if a person is not of the mind to take part in the marathon, he or she should go right ahead and make his or her way to the sides of the scheduled or planned running route and cheer the runners on.

In the month of May, there is an exhibition which is starting, which runs till the month of September. The same runs on the theme of the Rolling Stones and is scheduled to be held at the Saatchi Gallery, which can be found on Kings Road.

The following month, that is the month of June, is the month during which the UEFA Euro Championships, 2016, are to start along with Pride London, as well as Guy Garvey’s Meltdown at the Southbank Centre.

Pride London is a festival which is to be held in the trendy area of Soho during the week or so between the 18th and 26th of June. It is a festival which celebrates the culture of the LGBT community of the city. As a matter of fact, there are thousands of people who come from areas which are quite far away from the capital to take part in the festival and contribute to the success that it is.

The UEFA Euro Championships will mean that most of the bars and parks which are located in the city will be screening matches and perhaps a small fraction of the population of the city will head over to France, across the English Channel to watch a few games live. However, it is to be kept in mind that the success of England in the competition is key to public interest in London remaining on the football oriented happenings of the UEFA Euros, in France.

From June 10th, the same day the Euros begin, till the 19th of the month, there is the annual Meltdown Festival which is held by the Southbank Centre, on the southern side of the River Thames. The music which can be discovered by attending the festival is quite diverse in nature and it can be said that it well warrants a visit.

 During the lovely summer month of July, there is the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, which happens to be the largest of its kind, in the world. It is to be held between the 5th and 10th of the month.

Furthermore, there is also Love Box, which is the music festival of East London and will be held between the 15th and 16th of the month.

The Caribbean diaspora and people of this ethnicity celebrate in a big way in the month of August, between the 28th and 29th in the form of the Notting Hill Carnival; creating a party atmosphere which is eclectic.

While in London, it is very likely that a visitor would need a hotel to stay at and it is important to make the right choice of hotel as this can have a large impact on the quality of his or her trip to the city. The London City Suites By Montcalm are well worth giving a chance to and it can be said that they represent an option which combine quality and comfort and as well as a rather reasonable price when one takes into account what he or she is receiving in return for the money paid by him or her.

The London Design Festival takes place in the month of September and the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Barbican are the places to be.

Those who like their drinks made perfectly would do well to visit London Cocktail Week between the 3rd and 9th of October. Covent Garden is the place a drink enthusiast would find himself or herself.
