Outdoor Events in London
Sure, we like to moan that there's no sun in a British summer, but once that big yellow ball starts shining down on us we all start to panic because we need things to do in the sun in London. For every problem, the capital has an answer and is ready with loads of different things to do outside ranging from boat parties and canal cruises to rooftop exercise and outdoor cinema. So when the temperature's rising, put on your finest string vest and get down to the best outdoor events in London.
Head for the skies with this unique rooftop bar in Tobacco Dock. Enjoy panoramic views of the city from on high while you sip on cocktails and even take in a few rounds of croquet or petanque during summer, while in winter it's all about their ice rink.
Combining a bar, event space, and open air cinema, Roof East is one of the best rooftop bars in London. Hop up the lift and into the space where you can play crazy golf, get involved in an American-style batting cage or simply grab a gin and tonic and appreciate the sunset over the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Baking is so in right now, so why not get your friends together and compete to see who's the best and making something delicious. All in a cute marquee, you'll be provided with the ingredients and 90 minutes to come up with the best piece of cake you can. Can you beat out the other 9 teams to be crowned London baker extraordinaire?
Make the most of long summer nights by heading to Brixton's Prince of Wales, and explore their schedule of epic events. Perfectly placed in the buzz of South London, the rooftop bar's selection of live DJs, epic soundsystems and quirky parties are a must-see.
Make the most of long summer days by scouring El Mercado for international street food, interactive workshops and masterclasses, and stunning live music. The all-new eco-friendly village market in Hackney promises to be one of London's hottest spots this season.
