We don't care about Paris in the spring, or New York in the summer — there's nowhere on earth we'd rather be than London when it's sunny.
Drinking al fresco can only be beaten by drinking al fresco with a view. London is a beautiful city and one of the best ways to enjoy it is with a drink in hand, on the top of a tall building.
Here's our guide to the top rooftop bars to drink at this summer.
London's best ice cream
Cool off with some delicious ice cream or gelato — here are our favourite spots for indulging in the delicious cold goodness.
Head for a beer garden
There's a bounty of beer gardens in London, from the diminutive, cute little spots to sprawling spaces. We did some extensive (and very arduous) research and have mapped our favourites here.
Go for a walk
There's so much to explore in London, so strap on some comfy shoes and make the most of the city on foot. Whether you're after a major adventure, or a short stroll there's plenty on offer. Our list of weekend walks will get you off on the right foot.
On your bike
If walking pace is too slow for you, the city has plenty to offer cyclists.
London may be best-known for the major parks, but the little gardens have charm by the bucket-load. Why not eschew Viccy Park for somewhere like the Dalston Eastern Curve? There are plenty of other ideas here.
Eat by the water
Sitting in the sun alongside the river while eating your food is one of the many delights of summer in the city. Here's our recommendations for the best outside spots to recline over a repast, with a watery view.
