Where London - - Outdoors -

The Sum­mer­house, a canal­side venue near Lit­tle Venice, serves catch of the day along­side New Eng­land clam chow­der, seared scal­lops and rock oys­ters. Grab a ta­ble by the wa­ter on the cov­ered ter­race, which is heated so you can stay out late.

You could also try its nearby sis­ter restau­rant, The Wa­ter­way, which has a large wooden deck and gar­den with para­sols, blan­kets and heaters.

Lon­don’s bar scene has plenty of al­fresco op­tions. You can’t go wrong with Rum­pus Room, a slick rooftop bar that re­opened last month fol­low­ing a ren­o­va­tion. On the 12th floor of Mon­drian Lon­don at Sea Con­tain­ers ho­tel, it over­looks the River Thames.

If you’d rather be closer to nature, check out The Nar­row­boat, a beau­ti­ful canal­side bar in Is­ling­ton – you might even spot kayak­ers pad­dling past. The Crooked Billet, a park­side pub by Wim­ble­don Com­mon, is another pop­u­lar op­tion on a sunny day.
