June 2019's must-sees

Looking ahead: the best of London coming up

Whatever the weather, London really hots up in June, with events and exhibitions coming up so thick and fast it can be hard to choose what to do. Here are four of our favourites for the month to help you enjoy your stay at The Beaumont, from transatlantic sports stars to Bill Gates' favourite book.

The concierge team at The Beaumont know London inside out, and they are here to help guests look beyond the obvious tourist clichés.

Ballpark figures

On 29 and 30 June, London becomes Europe's first city to host Major League Baseball as part of its regular season. For one weekend only, two giants of baseball - the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees - will meet each other at the London Stadium, which will be transformed into a 60,000-seater ballpark specially for the occasion. To celebrate, The Beaumont will be offering a special Boston Classics Menu in the Colony Grill Room.

The 2019 London Festival of Architecture, which takes place all through June and right across the capital, focuses on the theme of boundaries - borders, walls, fences, city limits and even personal space. Some of the world's leading architectural practices throw open their studio doors for what is the largest global festival of its kind, with more than 600 highlights to choose from, from exhibitions & walking tours to talks & family events.

Forest fantasy

Enter the world of Shakespeare's best-loved play, A Midsummer Night's Dream, in this new immersive production at the Bridge Theatre. Directed by Nicholas Hytner, it stars Game of Thrones' Gwendoline Christie as Titania, and transforms the theatre into a magical forest, in which the audience can choose to sit close to the action or follow the story on foot into a dreamworld of feuding fairies and uncontrollable desire. From 3 June to 31 August.
