London is one of these places that can never be fully explored. Every month a new layer of the city exposes itself in another series of events and festivals, waiting to be discovered by its residents.
November is a great month to go and explore London because the transition into autumn adds so much beauty and nuance to this place that even places you have visited before seem fresh and new.
If you want an overview of the best things that London has to offer this autumn then this is your guide.
This should be the number one exhibition for the sculpture fans among you!
Rodin is widely regarded as the sculptor who changed art history. This exhibition will offer unique insights into his innovative ways of working and explore his work through a modern lens. There will also be unseen, experimental work on display to reveal a new side to the French sculpturist.
As someone, who watched a documentary about Rodin in 10th grade and has been obsessed with the “founder of modern sculptures” ever since, I cannot wait to book my ticket! You shouldn't either!
Christmas at Kew is a stunning, seasonal light show in one of London's most beautiful botanical gardens. Get ready for sparkling tunnels of light, dancing waterside reflections, and trees covered in strings of glittering fairy lights.
It's imagary straight out of a fairy tale and everyone, who has gone to Christmas at Kew in the past can confirm two things:
- It’s amazing
- Tickets are gone really fast, so book yours now and get ready to enter the romantic and magical world that Christmas at Kew is.
This suggestion is for all the autumn fans among you!
Kyoto Gardens in Holland Park is filled with colourful plants, shrubs and water ponds with koi fish. There is also a roaming muster of peacocks. The gardens were created by a Japanese designer and fully reveal their beauty in autumn, when the leaves on the trees turn red, yellow and brown and the park is even more colourful and breathtakingly gorgeous than usual.
If you are not in the mood to spend a lot of money but still want to see something special, Kyoto Gardens is the place to go to.
"The Bronze Garden" at 180 Studios is part of a series of Zen Garden works by New York-based artist Daniel Arsham. The exhibition is inspired by his travels through Japan and visits to Zen Gardens. The works investigate the ideas of time and impermanence and play with materials, colours, light and to a degree, even sound.
Bronze Gardens will be an exceptional visual experience that makes use of creative tools to place you in a space where time does not exist.
Don’t miss out on it!
