Park and Barbecue Style

This is the time to embrace the hot weather and go outside! Londoners are particularly fond of the great parks the city has proudly maintained throughout its evolution, despite the difficult challenges associated with population's growth.

Different locations across the city provide these cherished green spaces to walk around and sunbathe. It's really cool to see everyone enjoying the sunshine like lizards warming up their bellies in the wild.

From Hyde Park to Pimrose Hill and Hampstead Heath, these are like oasis in the desert, where people can replenish their energy levels and relax in a serene mood induced by the primordial contact with nature.

Another great thing about London's lifestyle is without any doubt the barbecue, whoever has a garden or a roof terrace eagerly waits for the hot weather to come in order gather friends for a healthy meal outdoors.

Barbecues are a great way to socialise and meet people. Sometimes things can get out of control, from people ending up on the roof to strangers joining in without being invited, but it's all about having a good time.

They can also be themed gatherings where everyone dresses up as a gangster or wears a wig. The barbecue's most common alcoholic drink is definitely Pimm's, a refreshing mix of fruits and mint.

You can also enjoy this fabulous weather on a roof terrace bar, from Aqua to Shoreditch House, which has a fantastic swimming pool. London offers its magnificent views within stylish surroundings and glamorous people.

Whatever you do, you will need a hat, sunglasses and a big bag to carry a magazine, a book and a sarong. The most important thing is to enjoy yourself and get as much vitamin D as you can! Smile and be happy!
