By Time Out London contributor

Did sumer slip by when you weren't looking (or were transfixed by Netflix)? Here's a recap of the things that got London going this summer.

1. Lawn games became cool

Londoners under 50 started showing an interest in bowls; possibly something to do with it being barefoot and accompanied by DJs, craft beer and street food.

2. We couldn’t get enough of ice-cream sandwiches

Especially the ones from the Blu Top van, which came sprinkled with Lucky Charms!

3. We exposed our knees

Never have we been so proud of our pale, nobbly patellas than when we were sporting this summer’s ubiquitous peekaboo ripped-jeans look.

4. Scooters whizzed back into fashion.
