London isn't made for sitting around indoors. Once the weather warms up and the sun starts making an appearance, you can't beat a day out in London. People start smiling (a bit), after-work tipples are relocated into 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 ,before 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.
