A beautiful event
The London Thams Festival is one of those holidays that most tourists do not know about, yet it is one of the most beautiful events that take place in London throughout the year. The dates change from year to year but it is usually held in the second weekend of September, because it is considered to be the closing party of the summer. It takes place all over the south bank of the Thames, from Waterloo Station to near Tower Bridge. There are shows, music, food stalls serving cuisine from all over the world (Spain, India, Mexico, Italy, etc ...). The event closes on the Sunday evening with a beautiful show of fireworks over the river, with the dome of St Paul's Cathedral making a stunning backdrop.
