    when I will have some free time

    I am going to describe you my upcoming stay in London in detail to highlight when I will have some free time.

    Is the sentence above correct? I'm not sure whether "when I will have" is correct there.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    Yes, but "I am going to describe you" is wrong.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It's wrong in the OP's sentence, but not always: I'm calling Aunt Jean, who's going to pick you up at the train station. I'm going to describe you to her.

    Now you know!
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
