Summer Activities in London


Summer is officially here. As we head out into an (almost) unsocially distanced world once again, we have put together the top activities that are a must for your bucket list in the Capital in July, August and September. 

1.     London Wonderground

 London Wonderground is a summer playground with adventure for the whole family. From a city beach to vintage rides, live music and outdoor bars to streetfood, there’s plenty to keep everyone entertained. There’s even live shows such as ‘A Matinee At The Musicals’ and ‘London Comedy Allstars’. London Wonderground is free to enter and runs from 15th July to 26th September. 

Location: Empress Place, SW6 1TT

2.     London Transport Museum After Dark

The Transport Museum’s ‘After Dark’ sessions feature activities such as interactive poetry sessions, quizzes and panel talks, with drinks and refreshments available for all. Each session is themed around topics such as London’s lost rivers and the history of the Thames Tunnel, making it perfect for those who want to know more about the Capital’s historic transport network. 

Location: London Transport Museum, Covent Garden Piazza, WC2E 7BB

3.     Between The Bridges

Set over 4,000 square feet, Between the Bridges on the Southbank, boasts the title of London’s biggest beer garden. Alongside masses of space for alfresco boozing, you can also find street food-faves including vegan wizards Club Mexicana and patties from Burger and Beyond. The space will also be hosting a great line-up of DJs and music, weekly themed markets and even mini-golf and drag brunches. What more could you ask for?
