After the announcement that restrictions won’t be easing until 19th July (sad times), it looks like we’ll be sticking to parties for six inside and the club will have to wait. That shouldn’t stop you from having the ultimate London weekend and remember you can still get together outside with up to 30 people (yay!). We’ve put together our favourite London hotspots to make this weekend a banger.

Summer By The River, London Bridge
When the sun is shining in London, there’s no better place to be than down by the river. The Summer By The River Festival is being hosted over the next three months outside City Hall, London Bridge. Aside from the amazing views of Tower Bridge, the festival will be full of food and entertainment including rolled ice-cream (?!), a pizza parlour, a spritz bar and a leafy Greek Taverna with award-winning cocktails. Take a trip around the Mediterranean without having to quarantine afterwards and head down to the river. Need another excuse? There are no entry fees!

Electric Shuffle, Canary Wharf
Electric shuffle boarding? Surely not! The team behind Flight Club brings a modern twist on the centuries-old game of shuffle boarding. Courtesy of some technological wizardry, two teams can go head to head across three different games. Before you do battle on the boards, fuel up with Electric Shuffle’s epic pizzas and unreal cocktails, that will see you through the evening nicely. Toast your victory or drown your sorrows, depending on the outcome!

Sometimes you really just need to treat yourself, especially with the year we’ve all had. If you’re looking for the ultimate luxurious weekend and are willing to up your budget, why not book a spa day or a whole weekend if you really want to indulge. There are plenty of spas to choose from in London, but we’re loving the new subterranean spa in Knightsbridge’s Bulgari Hotel. The hotel has launched the ‘B. Beautiful Daycation’ package, made up of treatments to get you fully primed for the summer season. The package includes full spa access, two treatments, a mani-pedi, a cut and blow-dry, PLUS the option to stay overnight for an even more luxurious treat.
