What To Look Forward To In London In 2022

We all hoped things would return to normal in 2021, but the pandemic had other ideas and has disrupted the world for another 12 months. But we all optimistically look forward to 2022, making tentative plans for travel and leisure.

We all hope there is a return to some sense of normality this year, so we can resume travelling. If you are planning on visiting London this year, maybe you want to see a new musical, visit exhibitions, or return to your favourite restaurants.

We have a look at some of the upcoming events in London this year - keeping in mind that events may not happen, dates and other details can change as the COVID situation evolves.

1. Big Ben returns (Spring 2022)

Elizabeth Tower at the Houses of Parliament will be returning to regular service after four years of restorations and renovation, and silence from Big Ben’s four quarter bells, which should be heard again from spring 2022, as well as the spruced up (and newly-blue) clock faces back on show for all to see and that scaffolding removed.

2. Borough Yards launches (Spring 2022)

Borough Yards is a new development of shops, bars, and restaurants to the west of Borough Market. The first phase, which includes a cinema, opened in 2021, but the majority of the openings, including restaurants Barrafina, Parrillan, Bar Daskal, Butchies, Brother Marcus and Vinoteca, as well as shops and public spaces, are due to open in spring 2022.

3. Women's Euros (6-31 July 2022)

The UEFA Women's EURO championships are being hosted at stadiums across England, including Wembley, due to host the final on 31 July, and Brentford's new home, Brentford Community Stadium, which opened in 2020. Teams from 16 European countries are due to take part in the competition.

4. Dippy comes home (summer 2022)

Dippy the Diplodocus is one of London’s most famous museum exhibits, but the replica skeleton was removed from display at the Natural History Museum five years ago to go on a nationwide tour. Dippy is returning to the Natural History Museum in a temporary display about its travels. Exact date and duration of return TBC.
