Visit an open air cinema
London has loads of open air cinemas to enjoy this summer. From rooftop cinemas in the east-end, to cinemas on tour boats and along the embankment – there’s something for everyone.

Visit an escape room
London isn’t always sunny in the summertime, so if you’re in search of an indoor activity this summer, the Omescape escape rooms would be the ideal choice. There are lots of different plots and storylines to choose from, and you can even opt for more or less complex rooms – depending on how confident you’re feeling. Escape rooms are really fun, challenging and unique – and Omescape are the best in town.
Visit a food festival
London is full of food festivals this summer. From the Chicken Wing Festival to the Gin and Tonic Festival – there’s something for every kind of foodie. If you don’t want to go to a specialist food festival, why not visit one of the many food markets in the city instead? Borough Market is amazing in the summertime, and you’ll have so much fun exploring the food stalls.
Go outdoor swimming
London might not be well known for outdoor swimming, but actually there are loads of amazing outdoor pools in the city to enjoy on those hot summer days. When the city gets too hot to handle, trying out one of London’s outdoor lidos is a fantastic change of pace, and the perfect way to cool down.
Party at Notting Hill Carnival
It wouldn’t be summer in London without the Notting Hill Carnival! This iconic carnival takes place every year and it’s so much fun, and truly part of the city’s history now! Put on your brightest clothes, and get ready to enjoy summer vibes and an amazing atmosphere.
Sunbathe in Hyde Park
When the sun is shining, all Londoners flock to their local park and enjoy the weather. Make like a local and head to Hyde Park and cosy up on some deck chairs in the sunshine. Perfect for enjoying a spot of people-watching whilst eating some ice-cream and catching a sun tan. Sounds like a pretty great way to spend the day if you ask us!
