Last Saturday I headed to the Roundhouse in Camden, for their Pop-up beach with some friends. It was insanely hot (I soon ditched the black trench), so we grabbed a jug of Pimms and some deckchairs and lay out to sizzle. It as pretty surreal being surrounded by sun and sand, with London’s city scape just about visible over the pastel crates, and yet still very relaxing.
The beach is open for August so head down there when you have a few free hours. There’s quite a family vibe in the morning but as soon as the 2 for 1 cocktails start, people soon crawl out of the woodwork.
