Summer in London is hard to beat. The British capital’s parks are blooming and outdoor terraces and rooftops are booming with cool pop-up events, new summer menus and top cocktails. This month London welcomes a series of new rooftop and al fresco dining destinations – timely arrivals for the heady peak of summer. Skylark Roof Garden brings a premier sun trap to west London, complete with day beds, seasonal dishes and nautical-style seating, perfect for relaxing and watching the views and listening to top DJ sets. The Applebee’s Fish pop-up at the Southbank Centre is the perfect way to indulge in the quintessential British dish of fish and chips, while The Chelsea Courtyard is a stylish botanical retreat located just off the King’s Road.
