What to do in August

If you’re wondering what you can and can’t do, don’t worry we are too. To help you enjoy your August a little more, we’ve included some places that you might like to visit and things you might like to do this month.

OPEN-AIR CINEMA

You can still enjoy the surprisingly warm weather this summer by visiting an-open air or drive-in cinema. This has become so popular since the lockdown rules have relaxed and are now all throughout the southern region. Grab your popcorn, snacks, and get booking to enjoy a socially distanced night out at the cinema.

OPENING ROOFTOP BARS

What better way to enjoy a summer evening than sipping on a cocktail overlooking the sunset across London? Plus, outdoor spaces are deemed to be the safest places to socialise, so rooftop bars are more in demand than ever before. We’ve suggested some places you might like to visit.

Remember that most places are taking advanced bookings and are only offering table service, so get booking!
