May Bank Holiday Fun in London

Amanda Gegg, May 2018

When it comes to our favourite months of the year, May is well and truly up there, with its warmer temperatures, longer days and most importantly… the bank holiday weekends! You certainly won’t find a better place to take full advantage of this than in London, where the excitement in the air is palpable thanks to the sunnier weather and the arrival of some pretty fabulous activities and events…

Skylight London (Tobacco Dock, Wapping)
After last year’s success, the Skylight team are back at their three-storey summer abode just in time for the bank holiday weekend and will this time be bringing with them a croquet lawn and one of the most impressive outdoor bars in London.

Is it even a proper bank holiday without an idyllic rooftop terrace to enjoy it on? When it comes to sunny outdoor spaces, Park Plaza London Waterloo is considered one of London’s best kept secrets and is an ideal place to experience its iconic skyline.
