London Food Month:
A food festival set to return for 2018 and one you’ll want to catch is the London Food month, which includes plenty to do all over the capital and some night markets. Perfect to check out in the summer and with lots of different mini events popping up all over the capital you’ll have lots of opportunities to catch a part of it! The exact dates are yet to be released but last year it was over the month of June, you can check out the site for more updates as they come.

The Taste of London:
Located in Regents park, this festival is a showcase for some of the best restaurants, top chefs and food and drink options. Being centrally located, this is a great option if you don’t want to travel too far outside of London. On from June 13th to the 17th the Taste of London is a great one to check out and makes a great reason to escape to the city for a summer weekend!

BBC Good Food Show:
With events all over the UK this is one to keep an eye on, they have some London based events including one at Hampton Court Palace called the Festive Feast popping up in December to get you truly in the mood for Christmas!

If London isn’t on your doorstep then why not plan in a mini break to be able to visit one of the festivals, you could combine it with checking out some other city sights or taking in a west end show! There are plenty of places to stay with options close by to the festivals such as thistle Kensington Gardens a perfect location for checking out the festivals and the city.
