A swim a day keeps the humidity away. While the hottest of the Summer Sun may have come and gone, it’s still pretty warm in the capital, so why not head to your nearest Lido for a dip? Bring a bunch of friends for an early morning swim or make a day of it with a picnic at Tooting Bec or the Serpentine Lido.

Hit a Summer party in Shoreditch

The Last Days of Shoredtich: Riviera is a Thur-Sat party that combines ‘bars, beats and beach life’. You can expect to find the best London DJs, karaoke, great cocktails and delicious food, including an avocado bar. This weekend-only event will run throughout the Summer until 27 August, don’t miss it!

Especially if you’ve never been on it, take a Summer ride on the London Eye and see amazing sunset and skylines to write home about. It’ll make for a special experience for a family or a romantic date night, either way it’s a great way to see the city.
