Things to do in London in June

We have all been waiting for it, and now summer in the UK is finally approaching! This June there are some amazing events taking place in London, which are ideal if you’re coming to study at Twin’s English Centre in London. Our English Centre is a great way of learning English in an exciting city, and the friendly community of students makes it easy to make friends and memories that will last a lifetime

The long awaited festival season is back with a bang in London! One of the most talked about festivals, ‘Found’, is happening on 14th June in Haggerston Park, which is an all-day house and dance music festival and arguably one of the best festivals taking place this year, so don’t miss out; there are still some tickets left! Another popular festival is ‘The Doctor’s Orders’. The festival is hosted in Shoreditch, an area famous for throwing unique urban parties, and The Doctor’s Orders follows the trend. Southbank is hosting the well-known ‘Meltdown Festival’ this month too, which hosts a variety of musicians producing various genres of music, as well as plenty of workshops to get involved in.

You may have heard of the film ‘Around the World in 80 Days’; well, the British Museum is providing visitors with the amazing experience of ‘Around the World in 90 Minutes’. Discover fascinating places many people have only dreamt of as they have never had the opportunity to visit them. The experience is on offer every Saturday and Sunday between 11.30 and 14.00, and provides you with the chance to get away from any troubles and worries and observe the intriguing world we live in.

Everyone’s been talking about it for months, and now the World Cup is finally about to take place between 13th June and 6th July. Even though London isn’t hosting the tournament this year, the capital still knows how to celebrate the great event that football fans around the world have been waiting for. London is home to some of the greatest places to watch the matches, allowing fans to feel the tense atmosphere each game creates. The Victorian Warehouse, for example, is bringing Brazil to the UK, with huge screens showing the games, chilled drinks, cheerleaders and even going a DJ! Other fantastic places to enjoy the football season include The Far Rockaway in Shoreditch, The Met Bar in Mayfair and Bounce in Holborn. London is by far one of the best places to enjoy the World Cup and experience the exciting atmosphere.

Whether you love music and festivals, learning about the world, or football, this June London is overflowing with interesting and exciting things to do. Make sure to come back next month to read about some of the best events on offer in the capital in July!
