London, known as the Forest City for its greenness, is at the very heart of Southwestern Ontario. The city offers wonderful green spaces, a packed calendar of cultural events and festivals, and a lively downtown core. There are traces of the “other London” here too. The river is called the Thames, there is a Covent Garden Market, and you can take a tour in one of the iconic red double-decker buses.
About one million visitors flock to London each year, most of them in the summer months, to attend festivals such as Sunfest, the Home County Folk Festival and the London Rib Fest, Canada’s largest festival devoted to sticky and delicious ribs.
London’s parks are part of the fabric of the city. There are extensive bike – 13 miles (22km) of paved paths along the Thames, and walking trails, wading pools and waterpads. Victoria Park is the lungs of the city, located right in the city’s core. It hosts the festivals and celebrations that make London such a vibrant destination.
A short drive away are the historic sites, theatres, provincial parks and freshwater beaches of Shakespeare Country, this part of Canada that celebrates the heritage of one of its founding nations.
The climate is continental. Summers (June to August) are warm to hot and humid. The winters are cold. London has the most thunderstorms of any Canadian city.
The summer months of June to August are high season. This is when most travellers visit London as the weather is at its best and school holidays take place.
Winter is generally the low season due to the cold weather.
