Expect lights, displays, and markets to stay up through early January. High Season (May to Mid-September, December): London is most heavily visited in the late spring and summer months, when the weather is warm and kids are off school, and during the December rush of shopping and seasonal activities.
The Off Season:
Peak tourist season in London is pretty much all year-round, but late spring (and summer) are especially busy. By making your London Town jaunt in late spring, you'll have the opportunity to witness the royal parks and gardens blossoming, and hit the city's weather sweet spot.
