Fall in London. For many the fall season is the ideal time to travel for the frugal adventurer. One of the biggest reasons would be the cost of the trip. Your biggest expense is airfare and you will quickly that costs decline this time of year. You might not notice it at first, but flight availability is much better during this slower season, so you have a much better chance of finding the exact dates you want to travel at a lower fare compared to the difficult peak season. Ok, you‚Äôve narrowed down the dates you want to travel and you‚Äôre just about ready to purchase your tickets, now you need to think about where you want to stay. Just like airfare availability, hotels will have plenty of room‚Äôs open which in turn means lower nightly rates. If you combine these two reasons alone and you‚Äôll notice that you‚Äôve already saved a good amount of money by choosing a fall vacation.
If you visited London during the peak season in the past then you will be pleasantly surprised by the lack of large crowds in fall. This means you will spend less time waiting in line or in a queue as the British call it, to attend events or even just getting around the city. Less waiting and fewer crowds mean less stress; this is a vacation after all.
Fall also means that the kids are back in school, so families are less apt to be on their family vacations. This makes it the perfect time for a romantic trip with your significant other and means things are much more intimate wherever you go.
Some might argue that the downside of fall is the cooler temperatures that it brings. However as long as you are prepared when you pack for your trip this shouldn‚Äôt be too much of a downside. This doesn‚Äôt mean you‚Äôll need your winter coat every day, but you should plan your outfits in easy to remove or add layers. This enables you to be ready for whatever the day is like as well as how quickly it can change. The key thing to remember is an umbrella. London is well known for its quick and sometimes long rain showers.
Above all enjoy yourself. Don‚Äôt over plan your days so you feel like you have to rush. Give yourself some wiggle room and allow the city to unfold naturally.
