Last week was all about London vs New York: if you read the comments, you’ll find London certainly came out on top!

This morning we woke up to autumn in London. Coats, scarves, macs and umbrellas were all in force on the journey into work.

But autumn in London means more than the occasional early-morning downpour. On the sporting calendar we can look forward to world-class rugby league, a visit from both the NBA and the NFL, and world gymnastics and world tennis championships.

With the weather turning colder, you’ve also got an excuse to check out London’s cosy museums and art galleries: autumn brings the Turner Prize to the Tate, Maharaja to the V&A, and Suburbia to the London Transport Museum.

You can also indulge in the Wine Show, the London Restaurant Festival and the RHS Autumn Harvest Show, bringing the countryside to London’s Horticultural Halls.

So, the weather might be a bit murky today, but there’s a lot to look forward to this season!

Let us know what your recommendations are for autumn in London.

    I love meeting friends for a cup of mulled wine or hot apple at a sparkly fireworks display.

    I’m going to try the Blackheath Fireworks this year I think ( I like the sound of the international food and drink – plus it’s free!

    The Wine Show is always great fun… And indoors, so who cares about the weather?!

    All the brilliant autumn ‘blockbuster’ exhibitions at London’s major galleries. Moctezuma, Maharaja, Turner, Pop Life etc. etc.
