As the days are getting longer and the daffodils are beginning to appear, we explore what’s happening in and around London this March - which has also been revealed by Rightmove as the strongest month to sell!
1. Celebrate St.Patrick’s Day
Although the 17th March is not a public bank holiday in England, you can join in with the St.Patrick’s Day celebrations in London on Sunday 13th March with the St. Patrick’s Day Festival. Now in its 19th year, the Mayor’s St. Patrick’s Day festival is the largest celebration of Irish culture and community in Trafalgar Square. The event is free to enter and showcases the best of the Irish arts, performance, culture, food and music.
2.Six Nations Final
The Six Nations Tournament will conclude with France vs England on 'Super Saturday' on Saturday 19th March at 8pm. Why not explore some of London’s best high streets in lively areas such as Northcote Road in Battersea or King Street in Hammersmith to watch the final game?
