FeatureNewsMayor of London Sadiq Khan welcomes visitors to London

Exclusive letter from the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan

 

Welcome back to London this autumn

It has been a challenging year for our capital. However, having overcome everything from plagues to fires to great smog, London retains its survivor spirit.

Londoners have made monumental sacrifices to help us move closer to being able to enjoy more of the things we love.

That is why I am urging everyone in our city – whether you’re visiting for the first time or have lived here all your life – to please keep up the effort.

Stay safe

While enjoying our city, please wear a face covering when in enclosed public spaces, and wash or sanitise your hands regularly. Try to use public transport at off-peak hours and wherever you are, keep to social distancing rules.

What’s on

Events and venues across our city including the Tate Modern, the V&A and the Natural History Museum have made adjustments. Please follow their latest instructions to enjoy them safely.

This year’s BFI London Film Festival (7-18 Oct) will be the first to be accessible to people living right across the UK, with more than 50 screenings and premieres taking place virtually.

Every venue taking part in the London Restaurant Festival (1-31 Oct) will be strictly socially distanced with a variety of at-home experiences planned, too.

Likewise, much of this year’s Bloomsbury Festival (16-25 Oct) will also take place online. It will showcase the best of London’s art, culture and science, with 60 per cent of events free to attend.

However you spend your time in London, I wish you a safe and happy stay.

Best wishes,

Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan
