Museum Lates

The best thing about London is that you don’t have to spend a fortune to enjoy a culturally rich night out in the city! Yes, we are talking about museum lates.

Museums across the city hold ‘lates’ inclusive of engaging lectures, immersive events, and workshops. Don’t miss out on the extraordinary Victoria and Albert Museum late-night events and the monthly late opening, with candlelight shining throughout the Sir John Soane’s Museum.

Stargazing at Hampstead Observatory

For over a century, the Hampstead Observatory has been offering Londoners and visitors from all over the globe, a chance to look up and learn about the majestic night sky. The one-of-a-kind observatory is home to a 6’’ Cooke refracting telescope, offering spectacular views of the skies above the capital city. Recharge with a delectable afternoon tea at Hyde Park Hotel and head to this facility for an experience to remember! It remains open every Friday and Saturday night, so plan your visit accordingly.

Catch a Flick in a Fancy Cinema

Going to the movies is always a fun experience. However, a movie night in one of London’s uber-luxury cinemas is an altogether different ball game.

So, plan a trip to one of the luxury cinemas in the city, be it the fancy Electric Cinema in Portobello or the ever-so-popular Regent Street Cinema. Enjoy the show!
