October is less than a week away, which means that summer is definitely over. As colder temperatures and darker evenings approach, a lot of you might be tempted to stay at home and do nothing. We think you should leave hibernation for another time and book yourself an autumn getaway in the capital. Cosy pubs, brilliant events and leafy walks – we think London is the perfect place to get away for a few days.
As one of the best cheap Kings Cross hotels, we are situated in the heart of London. Therefore, we are fully equipped to give you the lowdown on all the exciting things happening in October. As we do every month, we have put together a guide to some of these unmissable events.
The Crime Museum (Friday 9th – Sunday April 10th)
This exhibition runs until early next year, but we have included it on our list because it actually opens in October. The Crime Museum has never been assessable to the public, having just served as a place for law enforcement to learn about criminals and study evidence collected over the years.
Until now. The general public are now being given the chance to step behind the curtains and learn about some of the most horrific and goriest crimes. The Museum of London will be holding some of the most fascinating exhibits, where you can view and learn unseen secrets from some high profile cases over history.
It sounds very exciting – we can’t wait to check it out ourselves!
The Rumfest (Saturday 17th – Sunday 18th)
Taking place in London for the ninth year running, this event allows you to check out over 400 different kinds of rum from around the world, as well as some of the best brands available on the market. You can attend tasting classes, as well as cocktail making, seminars and masterclasses.
There will be live music and food to enjoy, as well as an auction of rare bottles of rum – which is all for charity! It’s definitely one for those who love rum.
NFL on Regent Street (Saturday 24th October)
To celebrate the NFL international games that are taking place at Wembley Stadium on this day, Regent Street will be hosting a massive American themed block party. There will cheerleaders, a drum-line performances, as well as interaction games for everyone to join in with!
The event will last all day and there will be plenty to eat and drink! We think it sounds really fun and definitely worth checking out.
