It’s autumn again in London. This season holds a special place in my heart. I love this sense of seasonal change in the air. The leaves turn and the summer crowds are over. The weather is still mild and pleasant and there is enough light to enjoy days before darkness sets in.
The main thing I love about autumn in London is the foliage. Watching the leaves turn in some loveliest locations is a lot to do with London in autumn.
