Get Outdoors

Longer evenings means more time to spend enjoying the weather (when it's not playing hot and cold) and making the most of your surroundings. Local parks and communal gardens are a great - and free - place to host a picnic and soak up some Vitamin D (if the sun stays out!).

One of our favourite things to do in Summer is pick and park, get some friends together and enjoy a communal feast. Bring a selection of nibbles (our Savoury meal topper is a perfect picnic snack) and a frisbee for a simple, cheap and fun day out. Here are some of our top al fresco spots in London:
