With the weather finally starting to warm up, we’ve rounded up five rooftop locations in the capital for you to bask the sunshine in.
- Netil House, Hackney
A short stroll from London Fields, Netil House is a buzzing warehouse space boasting a rooftop with panoramic views of the city.
With its relaxed atmosphere and decent prices, Netil House is an ideal spot for a few drinks with friends or to wind down after a long day at the office.
Plan ahead however, as you’re sure to expect a queue at this trendy location come the weekend and with any slight suggestion of sunshine.
Nearest tube: a 14 minute walk from Bethnal Green Tube
2. The Lock Tavern, Camden Town
Ok, so its not exactly a bar, but we couldn’t resist including this understated North London pub.
Situated opposite the bustle of Camden Market, The Lock Tavern is a great low-key spot to grab a cider and enjoy the warmer summer nights.
With a small roof-top deck and a good selection of ales and spirits, its the perfect place to relax on a Saturday afternoon.
Nearest Tube: Camden Town
3. Madison’s, St Pauls
For a more upmarket feel and unparalleled views of the city, head to Madison’s, which is situated on the top floor of One New Change.
A great selection of cocktails and its incredible views of St Paul’s Cathedral make this an ideal place to catch the sun set with friends.
And, with outdoor heaters and blankets in the winter – you can visit all year round.
Nearest Tube: St Pauls Station
4. Pergola On The Roof, Paddington
With an expansive seating area and a selection of some of the city’s most-loved restaurant offerings, Pergola On The Roof is a firm favourite among Londoners.
Hold your horses however, its Paddington location is set to open again come April 26th until October.
Nearest Tube: Paddington
5. Queen of Hoxton, Shoreditch
Alongside its bar and club venue, The Queen of Hoxton is also host to one of East London’s best terraces.
The roof top location opens twice a year in both Winter and Spring, with the venue transforming to capture one of its various enchanting themes for the year.
This winter the bar took inspiration from the far away intrigue of Morocco, returning again this May to bring you a just as magical ‘Lost Vegas’ theme.
Nearest Tube: a seven minute walk from either Liverpool Street or Old Street station.
