What to See
Radio, ME Hotel, Central
If you’re looking to get high in London then it doesn’t get better than Radio on top of the all-new ME Hotel. There’s a 180-degree view of London so soak that up while the sun is shining, and once it’s gone down there’s a laser show to keep you entertained.
The cocktails suit the swanky vibe up here and the white cabanas will make you feel like you’re kicking back in St Tropez.
However, the view of St Paul’s, Big Ben,
The Shard and The Gherkin will soon remind you
that you’re livin’ it up in London town.

Frank’s Bar, Peckham
A car park? In PECKHAM? Yep and this is the best thing to hit Peckham since… well ever actually. This is one rooftop that is well worth the trip south. Frank’s Bar on the 10th floor of a multi-story car park in Peckham has changed the game in this part of town with its epic views across the London skyline, laid-back vibe, £5 serious cocktails and BBQ kitchen serving up delights like smoked aubergine and hummus.
When the sun is shining, or setting, get yourself up
here, grab a spot on a wooden bench, or even chill
on the floor, and do it like the cool kids of the south.

The Tattershall Castle, Embankment
If you’re going to drink outside and soak up the sunshine what better place is there to do it than on a boat? The Tattershall Castle is moored up along Embankment and you’ve got to cross the plank to get on board. Once you’re on get involved with cold beers, chilled wines and a relaxed crowd. Come 11pm it might not feel quite so relaxed though, there’s a party that goes on
until 3am… and yes, you’re invited.

Dalston Roof Park, Dalston
This is a full-on garden on a roof and we dig it. There are deck chairs lounging on the fake grass, pop-up bars, foodie stalls and a huge cinema screening classics to the al fresco crowd a few nights a week.
The roof park is the kind of place you will hang out all day, OK all weekend, when the sun is out and they’ve got parties going on ’til the wee hours. What excuse have you really got to leave?

Vista at the Trafalgar, Central
Vista is a classic. This rooftop over Trafalgar Square has one of the best views of London so you can pitch up with mates, grab a spot and watch the tourists climb over the lions below. Winner. If it gets chilly (as let’s be honest, this mega heatwave can’t last forever) there are blankets to snuggle under and killer cocktails to warm your bones. Despite its ‘tourist town’ location this spot is rarely
as busy as it should be so get up there!
