Lovetovisit's top pick of attractions, theatre shows and things to do in London this autumn

23 August 2022

We simply love London during the autumn.

The temperature is a little cooler, the parks and pavements turn golden brown with hues of burnt red and orange, and there's an endless amount of things to do and experiences to be had!

Whether you're visiting the UK capital with your family, your friends, loved ones or flying solo, we think you'll love what we have to share - especially when there are some great discounts on offer!

Check out our top picks of London's attractions, theatre shows and things to do in London this autumn season below.

We've even packaged up some of London's best attractions for you with the Merlin's Magical Pass, London Pass and Greenwich Day Pass

If you're up for doing lots and lots on your trip to London this autumn, these attractions packages and passes are perfect.

Merlin's Magical Pass gives you access to the London Eye, London Dungeons, Madame Tussauds, Shrek's Adventure and Sea Life in any combination you could want.

And if a day trip to Greenwich is on the cards, the Royal Museums Greenwich Day Pass is a great way of experiencing it all. 

Meet your favourite characters and celebrities in London on the West End and Madame Tussauds

You don't need luck to bump into somebody famous in London. Did you know there's a guaranteed way of meeting a whole bunch of them?

A ticket to one of London's top attractions Madame Tussauds means you can meet some of the world's most famous celebrities like Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, George Clooney and loads more. If you love your music, pop in and say 'hi' to David Bowie, Taylor Swift, Freddie Mercury, Little Mix, Ariana Grande, Beyoncé, Ed Sheeran and the rest of the Madame Tussauds music gang. Don't forget your bows and curtsies when you meet Her Majesty the Queen!

Why not pay a visit to the West End and book yourselves some tickets to see your favourites characters from movies and tv? 

The kids will love seeing Disney's Frozen come to life on stage and a chance to meet their friends Elsa, Anna and of course, Olaf!

Disney's The Lion King is a spectacle on stage for both children and adults alike. This incredible production has spent more than 20 years on the West End and is one of London's top shows. Marvel at how the cast and crew bring the characters of Mufasa, Simba, Rafiki, Nala and the whole of Africa's Serengeti Plains to a stage in London. 

Fans of classic British sitcoms will be ecstatic to hear that there's a new musical in town - Only Fools and Horses The Musical. Plus, from the 3rd October, TV favourite Les Dennis will be joining the cast. 

And finally, if you loved the movie, we just know you'll love the stage musical. Grease has held a place in our hearts for decades and the characters Sandy, Danny, the Pink Ladies and T-Birds just never seem to go out of style. This new production also stars Peter Andre as Vince Fontaine!

Discover the wonders of the natural world in the heart of London

When we think about London, our minds may go to images of a marvellous concrete jungle, with big red double-decker buses, a world-famous underground network, a city full of historical and architectural landmarks - we may even refer to it as the 'Big Smoke'.

Which is why we wanted to share with you some of London's top attractions that celebrate the wonders of the natural world. 

Immerse yourself in the autumn colours at Kew Gardens, meet animals from across the world at London Zoo, and explore the oceans at Sea Life London.

Halloween in London

If you're looking for somewhere to go for Halloween this year, we recommend London.

Steeped in bloody history, there are some terrifyingly brilliant attractions to visit that will send you back in time to learn what life was like for those who lived and died hundreds of years ago. 

Prepare yourself for frights and gory delights at the Tower of London, The London Dungeon and The London Bridge and Tombs Experience!

Go full tourist on your autumn trip to London!

If this is your first time in London or you've not been here for some time, why not go full tourist and book yourself a visit to some of London's most famous landmarks and attractions?

From Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, a visit to Greenwich by Thames Cruise, a journey through the city on the top of an iconic big red bus, or taking a spin on the London Eye, there's no end of things to do in London for a wannabee tourist. 

What to do with the kids when it's raining in London?

It's the question we dread asking, but sometimes it's necessary. 

What do I do with the kids if it rains?

Luckily for us, London has so many indoor attractions that will keep the little ones entertained and the grown ups dry. Here are some of our favourites this autumn.

See the kids step into a city where they'll feel like grownups at Kidzania, meet Fiona and Donkey at Shrek's Adventure and get all star struck at Madame Tussauds.
