Welcome back everyone! London is slowly but surely opening back to business as usual and it feels like the last 6 months have never happened.
August in London is here! Take advantage of the sunny weather (fingers crossed) by heading out into London’s great outdoors, exploring the city’s parks and embarking on a scenic walk around the capital. Now that London is gradually beginning to reopen, why not book a table at one of London’s recently reopened restaurants or at a rooftop bar to sink a cocktail against a sun-soaked panorama.
Many of the events and things to do that would usually be taking place in August in London have been postponed and cancelled to ensure event-goer safety. But, London’s brilliant and ever-resourceful artists, performers, experts and craftspeople are still bringing the fun to you. Notting Hill Carnival is going digital this year, as is the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall.
Whatever you do always check with the venue or event first before you visit to double-check what safety measures they have in place and if you have to pre-book in advance. Plus, always keep social distancing in mind.
Here’s your guide to the best events and things to do, online and off, in August in London 2020.

There are plenty of places to while away a sunny day in London, not least the city’s famous major parks. The grassy spaces are spread throughout the city, providing a flower-packed place to unwind and soak up some rays.

Notting Hill Carnival
It’s the sad news we’ve all been braced for: Notting Hill Carnival has been cancelled for the first time ever.
Organisers of the bank holiday parade, which is usually Europe’s largest street festival, had previously held off officially confirming its cancellation. However, today the board of Notting Hill Carnival Ltd announced the event, due to take place on Sunday August 30 and Monday August 31, will no longer be going ahead.
