London isn't made for sitting around indoors. Once the weather warms up and the sun starts making an appearance, you simply can't beat a day out in London. People start smiling (a bit), after-work tipples are now sipped in beer gardens, ice creams suddenly become a viable snack option – and that's just for starters.
Make the most of alfresco London and catch an open-air film screening or an outdoor theatre show, or even take a dip in an outdoor pool. And don't forget to do some sky-high dining and drinking at London's best rooftop restaurants and rooftop bars.
Like we said, you really can't beat this city when you've got the whole of the outdoors to play with and our comprehensive guide to help you along the way.

The Last Tuesday Society
A weird and wonderful cocktail bar on Mare Street located above The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities, Fine Art and Natural History. Expect oddities, bones and books in a nod to downstairs, as well as a gallery space and a full-sized taxidermied lion named Leonora at one of the tables. Inspired by the prohibiton era, TLTS have a menu devoted to Absinthe, as well as two pages of cocktails and a handful of beers and wines. Bar nibbles include a cheese board, kalamata tapenade and roasted cashews. Regular events are held here, too, including workshops in taxidermy or cocktails, lectures, literary launches and more.
Venue says: “Join us for aperitivo east London style! Sample Broadway Market's finest cheeses and meats, free with each cocktail order. Every Thursday!”
