1. Mount Street Summer Fair

Taking advantage of this, the annual Mount Street Gardens summer Fair brings all the elements of a traditional summer Fete to the center of London. Enjoy the homemade cakes, jam stalls and even a barbeque, while children experience all the fun of the fair with coconut shys and a bungee trampoline. Learn more here.
