The London Festival of Wine (14 October, 2017)
The annual London Festival of Wine is one of the most popular events in the capital and it attracts hundreds of wine-lovers each year.
The Festival takes place in the prestigious Grand Hall of One Great George Street in the heart of Westminster, just a two minute walk from Westminster Tube Station.
The venue is surrounded by many of London’s most famous sites and upmarket shops and restaurants.
With over 40 exhibitors and 400 wines to taste, all included in your ticket price, the London Festival of Wine is hosted by Tom Cannavan, award-winning wine writer, broadcaster and publisher.
Visitors will also get discounts if they choose to buy wines on the day.
Tom and his team have run a major wine festival in Glasgow since 2002, and he is the man who set up ‘The Wine Gang’ in 2008, bringing a popular wine festival to London for the past seven years. Now, Tom is bringing his own unique day-long celebration of wine to London. The Festival is open from noon until 5pm, with re-entry via the Festival wristband.

If you plan to visit Westminster for the Wine Festival, why not take your time and look around the surrounding areas? Westminster Abbey and the Palace of Westminster were originally built on a small island called Thorney Island and have existed for around 1,000 years.
Westminster and St. James are two of London’s most traditional areas, rich with the city’s history with traditional shops, the Houses of Parliament and centuries-old customs.
