There is always plenty to do after dark in the city, and once the clocks go back there is more nighttime to do it in! Check out the ever popular BluesFest at the Royal Albert Hall or cheer yourself up from the winter blues this autumn with a dose live bands and DJ sets - there is something for every musical taste out there. Meanwhile, Ronnie Scott's jazz club is the place to go if you fancy a little jazz to take your mind off the cold and the dark; head there for some hot tunes.
Change your lifestyle
Many people think there is nowhere else than the pub to go now that the
nights are darker, but a number of fantastic events that take place throughout autumn that can give you a new lease of life. Head to the Good Food Show for tips on winter cooking, try a spot of yoga to brighten up your day or check our amazing designer jewellery in time for the new season at Dazzle.
Get out and about
Autumn is a great time to get some fresh air and enjoy the change of the seasons, and there are always plenty of great autumnal events in London that will make you want to wrap up warm and get out there. Celebrate the best of sports at the ATP Tennis Finals, or cheer on the teams as international sides bring their hard hitting rugby skills to London once again.
Kids and family events
Kids will also be starting half term the weekend the clocks go back, and there are plenty of exciting events for them to enjoy on their week off.
Halloween and Bonfire Night are two of the best things about autumn, and there are simply loads of fantastic events taking place for both occasions. Whether you want to party hard for Halloween or join in the spectacular fireworks displays, there is something to celebrate in autumnal London.
Exhibitions in London
The weather isn't always crisp and cold in autumn in London; sometimes it's damp and horrid, so the best places to go are definitely indoors on these days. Check out some of the best exhibitions taking place in October for a little culture and warmth.
Remember, the clocks go back by one hour on Sunday 26th October 2014. The change officially takes place at 02.00 Greenwich Mean Time, so set your clocks back before going out on Saturday night so that you get that extra hour in bed in the morning.
