Here are 6 reasons why this iconic U.K. city is best to visit in fall:

Glowing Colors Of Fall

There are some amazing places to discover vibrant colors of fall in the U.S., yet it's not always the most adventurous.

Escaping to London in the fall will fill your heart with adventure as you discover a whole new side of one of England's most historic cities.

The leaves tend to transform into variations of golden orange, lighting up some of the already stunning sights.

Would you fly across the ocean just solely for fall foliage? Perhaps not. Yet, it sure is an added bonus to an amazing city worth a fall trip.

Drop In Airfare

Colorful leaves aren't the only thing dropping in fall. Flight prices change quite often for a variety of reasons, but tend to consistently drop after summer.

No matter the airline, fall is the time to find your next escape. With so many carriers, both U.S. and European-based, flying directly to this immaculate city, now is the time to whip out your credit card.

Let's take a gander at what may be on your fall travel wishlist. We have covered the fact you will be blown away by the fall foliage intermixed with stunning cityscape, but what else is on it?

You probably want all the pumpkin flavors you can indulge yourself in. London can take care of you there, too!

Not only can you get your Pumpkin Spice Lattes at one of its many cozy cafes, but what about some Pumpkin Spice Tea?

We all know the Brits love their tea, and so can you. Next on your list, let's assume you have been itching for sweater weather.

The hot summers turn to cool weather, usually in the 50s and 60s. The only downside is you may need an umbrella on occasion, but what better time to get your Pumpkin Spice Latte or Pumpkin Spice…Tea?

Go Off-Path For Pure Serenity

While we may dream of riding double-decker buses and making the Royal Guard laugh at Buckingham Palace, there is a whole other world just outside the city.

You have probably heard of Hyde Park, which is Instagramable in its own right, but Epping Forest offers pure serenity to escape the city crowds.

What better time to explore this area's beautiful nature than the fall season? There are quiet trails full of fall's finest colors with a mix of orange and maroon.

On your way back, you can stop in a lesser-visited area for fish and chips at a traditional English pub.

Trending On TikTok

According to Conde Nast Traveller, London receives more TikTok views than just about anywhere. This amazing city is trending because it truly is one of the prettiest autumn destinations.

While some places are represented unfairly by filtering images, there is no need to touch up London's photos.

Social media is actually a safe bet for a guide to this city with some truly amazing hotspots for fall foliage, less-crowded sights, and lower prices.

Best Time To See The Sights

Let's get one thing straight: London is almost always crowded. Yet, in the fall, it's much more enjoyable to explore the city.

Summer brings in hoards of tourists, so naturally, the fall crowds tend to become much more manageable wandering the city.

This is the time to take that double-decker in the cool breeze, visit Buckingham Palace with fewer lines for photo-ops, and see all the gorgeous city parks this time of year.
