Discover the best of London in November

By The Hub team, September 27, 2017

November is a great time to visit London. The weather may be chilly, but that means more opportunities to cozy up next to a log fire in a historic pub, see a firework display during Bonfire Night or go skating on a magical open-air ice rink. Autumn in London is packed with sizzling events, from cutting-edge art exhibitions to smash-hit theatre shows.

Hip-hop musical Hamilton will hit London's West End in November after taking Broadway by storm. Hailed as a "cultural phenomenon", the show written by Lin-Manuel Miranda tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, one of America's founding fathers. Another musical heavy-hitter, the MTV Europe Music Awards, will be rolling out the red carpet for the biggest names in music on November 12. Find out which musicians win big this year at the glitzy awards ceremony, which is being held in London for the first time in 21 years.

Big-name jazz stars will touch down in London in November for the 25th edition of the EFG London Jazz Festival, which takes place in venues across the capital, from the legendary Ronnie Scott's to Rich Mix in east London. The electrifying lineup features Hugh Masekela, Pat Metheny, Chico and the Gypsies, and Average White Band. They will be joined by many other international legends and emerging stars of the global jazz scene.

There are many exhibitions to see this month in London. Car enthusiasts can retrace the history of one of the world's most iconic car brands at Ferrari: Under the Skin at the Design Museum. Highlights include early cars and models hand-sculpted in wood and clay.

Autumn sees the capital's top art galleries roll out some of their best shows of the year. View some of the most memorable art of the 20th century at Tate Modern's long-awaited retrospective of pioneering force Amedeo Modigliani.

Cézanne Portraits at the National Portrait Gallery is also a must-see, bringing together 50 of the artist's portraits from across the globe, many of which have never been on public display in the UK. Hyped as a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition, the exhibit includes intimate portraits of the Post-Impressionist's wife, uncle and himself.

On London's sport scene , see the world's best eight tennis players, including Wimbledon-champion Roger Federer, at the Nitto ATP Finals. They'll battle for the coveted title at the O2 Arena in North Greenwich.

The Lord Mayor's Show on November 11, an 800-year-old custom that sees the City of London cheering on its newly elected mayor, attracts crowds from around the world. Dating back to 1215, the show features a spectacular parade and a dazzling fireworks display over the river Thames.
