London is one of the worlds most vibrant and exciting cities.The weather is usually better than you would expect in spring and Autumn but even if it rains this is one city that knows how to cope with wet weather.
There is so much to see and do that it is impossible to sum it all up in one or two sentences.
Central London itself is an excellent place for a vast variety of activities. Galleries, exhibitions, famous London tourist attractions such as the London Eye, Big Ben & Oxford Street shopping. It has a vast variety of bars, restaurants, parks and theatres. London has some of the best museums in the world, including the British Museum and National Portrait Gallery, and there is also a huge variety of cuisine to enjoy across the city, from Little China to Michelin star restaurants.
Herne Hill is situated between the more well-known areas of Brixton, Dulwich and Camberwell. It also straddles two boroughs, and is a community of just under 12,000 people, with a range of independent shops, art galleries, bars and restaurants.
The area is home to Brockwell Park. Near a hilltop in Brockwell Park stands Brockwell Hall, which was built in 1831. The land surrounding it was opened to the public in 1891 after it was purchased by London County Council. Brockwell Park hosts the annual Lambeth Country Show and was the site of London's Gay Pride festival for several years in the 1990s. The park also houses Brockwell Lido, an open-air swimming pool built in 1937.
Situated in a park off Burbage Road, the Herne Hill Velodrome was built in 1891, is the only remaining cycle racing track in London, and hosted the track cycling events in the 1948 Olympic Games. Unlike most modern, steeply-banked velodromes, it is a shallow concrete bowl
The Ritzy Cinema, Coldharbour Lane, is a formerly independent cinema now owned by Picturehouse Cinemas. The building was designed as the Electric Pavilion in 1910 by E. C. Homer and Lucas, one of England's first purpose-built cinemas.

A range of smaller venues such as The Prince Albert, The Prince / DexClub, The Windmill, The Dogstar, Jamm, The Telegraph, Plan B, South Beach Bar, The 414, The Effra Tavern, Upstairs at the Ritzy, and The Grosvenor are a major part of London's live music scene.
