What's on in London this month

Vivienne Westwood, as is so often the case, says it best: “There’s nowhere else like London. Nothing at all, anywhere.” We couldn’t agree more. There is, simply, so much to do in this wonderful city. We cover some of the finest postcodes in the capital and make it our business to know what’s going on in each of the local areas.

We present our guide on what to do, where to visit and where to be seen this summer.
