After an extremely quiet three months indoors self-isolating, we can’t control our excitement for some London events and attractions to be opening their doors this month.
We know you’ve missed exploring the city as much as we have so we’ve put together a few London based activities for you to add to your diaries.
Catch a film at Rooftop Cinema Waterloo
As much as we love snuggling up on our sofas binge watching Netflix, you just can’t beat a rooftop cinema in the summer overlooking skyline views of the city. Rooftop Cinema Waterloo will be showing classic favourites including Pretty Women, Mamma Mia and Grease from 10th July. This experience also includes bottomless drinks of Prosecco/beer and one snack each. All visits require advanced bookings.
Take a walk around Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
If you’re in need of a change of scenery from your local park, why not take a walk around Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. The beautiful gardens are now open for you to enjoy the fresh air and reconnect with nature. Uncover the science behind the 50,000 living plants found across the UNESCO World Heritage site. All visits require advanced bookings.
Explore a museum
Although the return of galleries and museums will not open all at once, several will hopefully be open for us to visit this month. The National Gallery will be the first major UK museum to open its doors on 8th July featuring two major exhibitions – Titan: Love, Desire, Death and Nicolaes Maes: Dutch Master of the Golden Age. All visits require advanced bookings.
Visit the animals at London Zoo
The documentary Tiger King has been trending throughout lockdown but now we can see tigers in real life without listening to Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin’s drama. London Zoo has opened its doors for a safe outdoor experience where you can visit a wide range of amazing animals including gorillas, lions, tigers and penguins. All visits require advanced bookings.
Spend the night in a London Hotel
With many hotels reopening from 4th July, you now have the opportunity to spend the night in a luxury London hotel after your busy day of exploring. Hotels including the boutique Holmes Hotel, the stylish Park Plaza Hotels, or Radisson Hotels, all of which are centrally located and easily accessible to many London attractions.
