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.

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.
