Events in London – April 2019

April is a great time to visit London because we get some lighter evenings at last (for pavement drinking at the pubs). Sports fans have got county cricket and the London Marathon. There’s a gun salute for the Queen’s birthday, and Shakespeare’s birthday kicks off the Globe Theatre season from April to October.
