Summer is here, and that means there’s lots to do in London. June is a great month to visit the city, with great weather and yet fewer crowds than you’ll encounter during the peak summer season. In this blog, we’ll rundown our five favourite activities for this June…
Attend Trooping the Colour
If you’re eager to experience a real British institution while staying at the Montcalm London Marble Arch, then a trip to the annual Trooping the Colour festivities might just be the perfect match. Every year, the Queen’s official birthday is marked in this traditional mixture of military parade and royal ceremony, with a parade in the centre of London and lots to see at the Mall. The event ends with a wave from the royals, and a fly-past from the Royal Air Force at Buckingham Palace.
With a wide range of special offers & packages at The Montcalm Hotels, you’re never short of ways to indulge yourself in June! Staying with us gives you access to a wide range of incredible spa facilities and treatments, making it the idea way to rejuvenate and get into the summer spirit before heading out to see more of the many things to do in London.
Enjoy the Great Outdoors
You have eight Royal Parks to choose from in London, and each has its own unique character. There is the bustling Hyde Park or the stunning Richmond Park, with its red deer and wide open spaces for example. In addition to the Royal Parks, there are lots of other impressive green spaces perfect for a picnic, a bike ride or even a trip on a parkland lake. We recommend picnics at the likes of Hampstead Heath, or exploring the Victorian-era dinosaur sculptures at Crystal Palace Park while enjoying spa breaks in London.
Have a Great Meal
You’re never short of dining options, with plentiful restaurants & bars in London to choose from. Whether you’re in the mood for fine cuisine, a fantastic food truck or something in-between, there’s more than enough choice for any discerning foodie – and lots of local eateries have outdoor spaces to help you make the most of the summer sun at the same time.
Explore Local Street Art
London is a major hub for street artists, and now that the weather has improved, it’s the ideal time to get out there and see it all. Shoreditch has some of the best examples, with major urban art figures such as Banksy using the streets and buildings as their own personal canvas. Whether you’re a big art fan or simply want to find out more about the local street art scene, there’s lots of great ways to do just that while staying in the city, with regular tours and lots of opportunities for adding fresh photos to your social media feed this June.
