by Nina Christopoulou
September is the month that signifies the beginning of the year, in more ways than one. As Autumn officially arrives, London puts on its best show with innumerable events and activities to get you inspired and excited for the winter ahead!
7. London Brunch Fest
Foodies out there, rejoice! Your festival is here… Just when we thought London couldn’t get more of a foodie city, it proves us wrong. On the 1st and 2nd of September you will have the opportunity to visit Brick Lane for an amazing brunch experience. There are two ticket options, the basic one and of course the one for the VIB (Very Important Bruncher) depending on your relationship with brunch! For more check out the event’s dedicated website .

This one has been up and running since 2014, and guarantees you will have the time of your life. A festival unlike any other, the music scene is set up by the likes of Paloma Faith, Billy Bragg and De La Soul, while the food village and family fun-filled activities compliment the music perfectly!

3. London Design Festival
London goes out on a limb every year to prove it is the capital of design, and every year it does exactly that. We suggest you investigate your key destinations beforehand, because with eight “Design Districts” and five “Design Destinations” alongside the innumerable museums, you are going to have a tough time deciding where to go! Thankfully, the London Design Festival website has all the information you need to sort out your visits for the LDF (find out more here). Get ready to start exploring on September 16th…

2. Open house London
One of the highlights of the year would definitely have to be this great opportunity to roam through buildings normally closed to the public. The architectural wonders of London open their doors for free and invite guests to join tours, guided walks and activities! Be prepared though, this will last a mere two days (22-23). If you would like to find out more, have a look here.

1. London Fashion Week Festival
This one attracts fashionistas from around the world, but it is quite an experience even for those that are not fashion crazed. From talks by industry experts to shows or shopping curated designer collections, LFW has it all! Even if attending is not in your calendar, passing by the venue means you will stumble upon some exciting street fashion – so save the date (September 20-24)! However, we suggest you have a look at their schedule as there are so many things worth your time!
