London Fashion Week

My husband and I are taking 2 weeks in September 9- 23 to visit England and France. I see from your book that London fashion week is Sept 12-16. Should we avoid London at this time or will fashion week have any effect on the average traveler?

I see from your book

Rick Steves doesn't hang out here, but if you had clicked the "Chime In" button a staffer will answer. If not it is just us regular folk.

Other than reading about it in the paper each year I never know that Fashion Week is on, and I travel into London 4 or 5 times a week for work.

As Emma says, it may affect hotels, but if you are all booked up that won't be a concern...

Somerset House is regularly used as a venue, so it may cause problems visiting the art collections and exhibitions there. Other than that, London is a big enough place to absorb the visitors.

Thanks, all. I'd say London's pretty busy year-round. Once your hotel is booked, the question of availability and price will be solved.
