April is that time of the year when cherry blossom trees go into bloom in London. That is one of the main reasons for you to take private sightseeing tours London anytime soon. So in addition to taking snaps of the streets lined up with the pink-rich trees, take London private tours for these experiences as well. We have got quite the line-up of events and experiences that will cater to just about all tastes.
This festival returns to the South Bank district this April and runs through September 29, 2019. It is a sign that summer is on the way. The festival, known for the upside-down purple cow tent theater, specializes in short shows of theater, comedy, dance, circus, spoken word and so forth.
Cocktails in the City
Twenty-five of London’s finest bars will take part in this two-day cocktail celebration from April 04 to 06, 2019. They will open temporary stalls below the Waterloo railway station. As the best in the business compete for the title of the best bar, we are promised tastings, bar battles, as well as ‘sensory cocktail adventures’. In addition, your tickets will also get you a free cocktail from any bar in the event.
Ice Age Kingdom
The Gunnersbury Park is set to host this outdoor immersive experience, which will bring Ice Age creatures to life, before embarking on a UK trip. It will run from April 06 to 28, 2019, at the park in West London. In this, you get to meet animatronic life-sized mammoths, sloths, cave lions, tigers, etc., and find out how these creatures used to live.
If you have got your place to run, we presume you already know the date of the London Marathon. For everyone else, April 28, 2019, is the day London’s athletes need your full support. Go to the streets along the route of the marathon and egg them on. If you are up to any other activity on that day, be aware of the closure of the roads.
Everyone is invited to the free Vaisakhi celebrations, set to take place in Trafalgar Square on April 27, 2019. This celebration of the Punjabi and Sikh tradition, culture, and heritage comprises live music, live performances, workshops, food and drink, and fun for people of all ages.
Exhibition on Stanley Kubrick
A highly anticipated exhibition in London is this one devoted to Stanley Kubrick, one of the visionary filmmakers of all time. The Design Museum will host it from April 26 to September 15, 2019. You get to see costumes, props, set models, and photos from the filmmaker’s career. They will give you an insight into Kubrick’s fascination with design. Besides, you get to relive scenes from some of his popular films.
Royal Gun Salute
The birthday of the Queen falls on April 21. As it is a Sunday in 2019, a gun salute will take place on April 22 to mark this royal occasion. On the day, salutes will be fired from many locations in London city. In the Green Park and Hyde Park, more rounds are fired on Royal Gun Salutes since they are royal parks. There will be a lot of rounds at the London Tower as well.
Back to the Future in Concert
On April 13, 2019, the Royal Festival Hall will screen this 1980’s blockbuster with a live performance by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra. Robert Zemeckis’ film about a boy’s time-travel adventures is an all-time sci-fi classic, and the orchestra will only heighten the experience of watching it. After all, who could forget Marty McFly and his trip to the past and back to the future in a DeLorean. This will also send down a whiff of nostalgia to those in the audience, enough reasons to book a ticket to the HD screening.
Now Play This
This is an experimental game design festival, to be staged at Somerset House from April 06 to 14, 2019. This is where people get to try new games, get hands-on with new technology, and immerse in gaming sessions.

The “Sapphire Star” will welcome visitors, just as they walk through the Victoria Gate. The botanical gardens will place unique art installations across the grounds.
Made from Lego bricks, and devoted to them, this bar opens at an unconfirmed location in Shoreditch. You have to book a slot well in advance of your visit, and your ninety minutes gives you access to the Lego furniture and sculptures, as well as a brick-made ping-pong table.
