From summer sports to festive fun, there’s always something happening in London’s packed calendar of events. So whether you’re a football fanatic or mad about marathons, join the crowds with something to cheer about in London.
Known as the home of English football, Wembley stadium is famous for hosting some of the biggest sporting matches and tournaments of our time. The famous arch that spans the roof can be seen for miles across the city, so you won’t miss it as you take the adrenaline-fuelled walk up the Wembley Way on match day.
Home to the world’s most prestigious tennis tournament, Wimbledon is infused with sporting history. If you’re visiting in July and lucky enough to get a golden ticket, sit back and watch a tense match point at Centre Court. If you’re without a ticket, enjoy strawberries and cream while you soak up the amazing atmosphere in and around the grounds.
Whether you want to watch or you’re getting ready to run, the marathon makes a great day out. With a backdrop of London’s top landmarks, this sporting event is hugely popular. See top athletes going for glory next to charity runners in fancy dress and enjoy the carnival atmosphere created by the 44,000 strong crowd that are there to cheer them on.
Celebrate the festive season in style by whisking your family to London’s Winter Wonderland. This huge festival dedicated to all things Yuletide pops up in Hyde Park from the end of November and stays for six weeks each year.
