One of the great things about London is that there is no end to the number of places where you can go and take in some of the glorious summer sunshine. Whether it be chilling out in the numerous parks to choose from or relaxing by the riverbank, there is no better place to have a few cold ones and watch the world go by. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city then why not go upwards and check out some of London’s trendiest rooftop gardens bars. Here are a few you might want to check out with some great views to boot.
Arguably the best in town can be found in the Whitechapel area. The Culpepper Roof garden is a really lush green space and serves a range of brews. Popular with city folk its best to get there early if you want to get a good seat and watch the sun go down over the city. It also has a good food menu with reasonable prices and a lot of the herbs and vegetables on the menu are grown up here so you’re guaranteed freshness.
If you’re not too bothered about the eating and drinking then there are some spaces available for you to just sit and relax. The honor of the highest roof garden in London goes to Sky Garden in Aldgate. Spread over three floors there is plenty of Mediterranean greenery on offer and there are also a number of bars and restaurants dotted around for you to explore.
With some of the best landscape gardeners Kensington has to offer you don’t have to look too far in this trendy part of the city to find a nice space for you to relax. With iconic Kensington Roof Bar now closed after almost 35 years in the trade, a number of other bars have stepped in to fill the void. Curve Roof Bar is one such bar and does a pretty good job of it. Situated close to South Kensington tube station it attracts a casual crowd and when the sun has finally gone down there are plenty of bars nearby where you can while away the rest of the evening.
