Free lunchtime concerts in London:
Royal Opera House presents young artist series -- entirely free but reservations required due to high demand.
St Martin's in the Fields at Trafalgar Square and St James of Piccadilly are two of many beautiful churches that offer free lunchtime classical music concerts. Just turn up before 13:00. Donations are suggested and highly recommended to keep these concerts going.
October will see my 4th visit this year to this amazing city (see latest photos of London). Each time I saw how much cleaner and upmarket it has become, dined at chic dim sum restaurants, indulged in opera, concerts, festivals, and most of all, enjoyed London with good friends near and far.
September, October, November
What defines the beginning of autumn? When trees start shedding their leaves? When the sun no longer shines as often or as brightly? When the rituals of going back to school or going back to work resume? When the mourning of a short summer begins?
