New York summers are all about spending the most time possible out doors, meeting friends and enjoying the thriving cultural scene that made this city so famous. Summer means outdoor barbecues, cold beer, spending time in Central Park and most of all, free concerts! Take advantage of the season, fly London – New York City for £328 this June.

The city heats up once summer rolls around in more ways than one. Hot days combined with free concerts means that from May to August this year, there’s no better time than the present to finally plan that trip to the Big Apple. No matter what your style, you can see it all from rock at South Street Seaport to classical at the Metropolitan Opera or jazz at one of the city’s best festivals, SummerStage and CelebrateBrooklyn!
