31 Photogenic Reasons to Visit London in Summer

I’m sure any Londoners will be reading this with an inner chuckle in their head. Of course London in summer is beautiful, who doesn’t know this?! But those of us who don’t live in London have images of smoggy air, no greenery and grey skyscrapers at every turn. To us, going to London for a summer break would be the craziest idea.

And that would be dead wrong, London in summer is almost as good as London at Christmas. Provided the weather is what you would expect of summer (which, let’s face it, is likely not to happen) then it’s a great place to make the most of the weather. Here are some snaps from my more recent trip there that I think highlight why it’s so great.
