Plans to do in London in May and where to change from euros to pounds

May is the month of flowers, the days are super long and the weather is very pleasant. Visiting London in May is ideal for making plans outside.

 

1. ENJOY THE FLOWER FESTIVAL IN CHELSEA

 

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is the world's most prestigious flower show and takes place in London in May. These days, the Royal Chelsea Hospital becomes an ephemeral art museum where international landscape architects use flowers and greenery from across the UK to fashion their works.

If this exhibition is out of your budget, you have a free plan B. Be sure to take a walk through the streets of Chelsea, one of the most elegant neighborhoods in London, and enjoy Chelsea in Bloom.

It is an alternative floral art show where local shops, restaurants and hotels compete by adorning their entrances with the most creative themed floral designs.

 

2. SAIL BY BOAT ON THE THAMES IN LONDON

 

Going by boat in London is one of the experiences that we most recommend. The boat trip on the Thames in London allows you to enjoy a bit of relaxation (which is appreciated in a city as busy as this) while you get to know the main monuments of the city from a different perspective.

Most cruises in London usually have an open-air room and another acclimatized for cold days, but the best thing is that they also have a bar/cafeteria where you can have a warm coffee or a beer.

 

 3. PARTICIPATE IN THE LITTLE VENICE FESTIVAL

 

The bridge of the first weekend of May (early May bank holiday), the canals of Little Venice are flooded with colors. The Inland Waterways Association hosts the annual Boat Gathering where more than 100 boats moor along the Grand Union Canal between Blomfield Road, Warwick Avenue and Warwick Crescent to participate decked out in this cavalcade.

Lots of fun awaits you here, dancers, street food stalls, Ale taps, craft stalls, live music and children's activities.

 

4. GET TO KNOW LONDON IN SPANISH WITH THE AVAILABLE FREE TOURS

 

Put on comfortable shoes and join a free walking tour in London. They are the best way to get to know the city. Free tours are guided walking routes without a stipulated price. It is you who will have the freedom to voluntarily assess the work of the guide once you have already known his work. They are based on the idea of ​​why pay for something before knowing it if I don't know if I am going to like it or not?

 

5. SEE LONDON FROM THE HEIGHTS

 

Any time of the year is good to see London from above. Our advice is that, if you can, do it at sunset. If you are lucky and the day is sunny, you will see how the sunlight draws pink strokes on the clouds in the sky and dyes the buildings in ocher and gold tones, with pronounced shadows that will make your photos spectacular.

 

6. ENJOY THE OUTDOOR THEATER

 

In May, the season of London's Regent's Park Open Air Theater begins. This is a great opportunity to see an outdoor play in Regents Park, one of the most beautiful parks in London, making it a unique experience.

If you really like the theater, don't forget that London is the home of the West End, the neighborhood with the highest number of theaters per square meter in all of Europe. The best plays and musicals are here. The Phantom of the Opera, the Lion King, Les Miserables...

 

Well, as you can see, you have many activities available to do in London if you travel this spring, all you have to do is pack your suitcase and enjoy your getaway.
