Stock up on the factor 50, buy a disposable barbecue and roll out your picnic blanket: this bank holiday is predicted to be a scorcher. 

According to the Met Office, the sunny skies we’ve enjoyed so far are set to continue into the four-day weekend with highs of 26 degrees predicted. As the temperatures climb, Londoners will be coming out in hoards, covering every green space in sight. 

If you want to make the most of the balmy weekend, grab a bottle of water and slip into your trainers to explore these stunning spots around London.
