With the recent heat wave, Londoners are out in full force making the most of this unusually hot weather. Check out our list of what to do in the capital over July.
Brixton Beach – from July 1
With the recent heat wave hitting our usually damp city, a trip to a typical London pop-up beach is the remedy. Brixton has the cure with a Cuban themed beach resort, bringing the delights of Havana to your doorstep.
With sand, palm trees, drinks flowing, music pumping, and exotic food galore, you wouldn’t want to miss this hot spot! Prepare to party the day and night away with a live DJ at this rooftop novelty with sizzling BBQ food, and quench-thirsting fruity cocktails.
Cinema screenings are also available in the evenings. Brixton beach is open every day of the week this summer!
Hokusai: Beyond the Great Wave – from July 1
If art floats your boat, then pay a visit to the British museum to see legendary Japanese artist Hokusai’s paintings.
Inspired by Eastern scenery, the exhibition will take you on a historical tour from his earliest paintings to his last, including famous works like ‘The Great Wave’ and ’36 views of Mt Fuji’. His work is believed to have inspired artists such as Van Gogh and Monet.
