After two years of living with the shadow of a pandemic looming over us all, things are finally looking up.
That said, most would argue that we're not out of the woods quite yet - which is why many still prefer to socialise outdoors, with the fresh air there to act as nature's best ventilator. Whatever your stance may be on all things Covid, it's hard to argue that alfresco drinking, dining and socialising doesn't have a special charm of its own - especially on a sunny day, with a light breeze rippling over you and gently ruffling your hair. In honour of that special feeling, here are some places with outdoor areas in London to enjoy - from gorgeous cafes
to roof-terrace restaurants
and outdoor craft beer
gardens ideal for chatting with friends until dawn, these 11 alfresco venues are sure to put people at ease without making them miss out on any of the fun.
