And if you are going to spend your spring break and holidays in this beautiful city, here is a short list of the best events in London that you must spectate this April 2017.

The London Marathon. Established on March 1981, The London Marathon is an annual long-distance running event in all of London that is held during spring break. The event, which has been on the run for 36 years now, is sponsored by the Virgin Money and is participated by thousands of amateur runners. This year, The London Marathon will take place on April 23, 2017, Mapping Megan says.

London Games Festival. Happening from March 30 to April 9, 2017, the London Games Festival is one of the biggest gatherings of consumers, video gamers and trade specialists in and out of UK. The event allows its approximately 50,000 participants to try 400 new and experimental games of all sorts - from board games, virtual reality entertainment to video games, Visit London says. There is also a live concert called the Games AV which features DJs, artists, musicians, filmmakers and animators who were influenced by the video game culture.

The Queen's Birthday. Every 21st of April, the city of London celebrates the actual birthday of Queen Elizabeth II. During this celebration, you can hear out the firing of gun salutes in Central London, as well as in the Hyde Park and in the Tower of London. If you are lucky enough, you might also catch the Queen as she goes on a walkabout to personally say "Hi" to her people.

The Re-enactment of the Passion of Jesus. Witness the spectacular full-scale re-enactment of the popular biblical story, The Passion of Jesus, which is held every Good Friday in the Trafalgar Square. With more than a hundred actors spearheaded by the Wintershall Players, this amazing performance honors the day of the arrest, trial and crucifixion of Jesus Christ in observance of the Holy Week.
