Mayor’s Letter: August 2018

london mayor sadiq khanA big welcome to London this August

Welcome to the capital this month. As ever, our city is full of exciting events and great things to see. Buckingham Palace is, of course, one of the world’s most recognisable buildings, but have you ever wanted to see inside? Throughout August you can do so as the palace has its annual Summer Opening. 

The BBC Proms are a British institution and this month there is a programme of musical performances for people of all ages. As well as limited £6 ‘Promming’ tickets, there are free places available at many events, including concerts at the Royal Albert Hall. This is the month when the Notting Hill Carnival enlivens the streets of west London. Join millions of Londoners as they dance alongside a parade bursting with colour and incredible costumes. Whether you come for the music or stay for the food, carnival is an experience like no other.

Whichever way you choose to spend your time in London, I hope you have a fantastic visit!

Sadiq Khan
Mayor Of London
