By April, spring is definitely in the air. The coldest months have gone in favour of more sunshine and a few rain showers.
Visit the London Wetland Centre in south west London, or another one of London’s city farms, zoos or nature reserves, to spot ducklings, chicks and other spring arrivals this month. Or sit back with a boat trip on the Thames or with a meal al fresco on a sunny day.
Get set for the arrival of the Underbelly Festival on London’s South Bank from 6 April, as a line-up of circus, theatre, cabaret, comedy, music and children’s shows returns for the 10th year. Plus, grab a drink in the sunshine at one of the capital’s largest outdoor bars.
One of London’s biggest sporting events, the London Marathon, takes place on 22 April. Enjoy the party atmosphere and cheer on the thousands of participants from the sidelines as they run past some of London’s top landmarks.
