Spend summer in the capital


It may only be April, but Brits will already have one eye on the summer sunshine that has been promised by the MET office.

Last summer, of course, saw temperatures rise in the capital, with July and August offering day after day of glorious weather.

And with something similar supposedly on the way in 2014, you may be wondering how to make the most of hot weather in the capital.

Well, you needn’t fret, as there are loads of top places to go where you can enjoy the heat.

Primrose Hill

One of the best places to spend a summer day in the capital is Primrise Hill, where you can enjoy an amazing view across the cityscape.

Take a camera with you and you will be able to capture some impressive images of one of the world’s most famous and historic cities.

And if you really want to make a day of it, how about taking a picnic and a football? During the summer, loads of families head up the hill to make the most of this idyllic spot in central London.


South-east London, meanwhile, is where you will find Greenwich Park, which was used as a venue during the 2012 Olympics and is always full of people looking to relax and unwind over the summer months.

Take a good book with you, sit on the banks of the hill and leave all your everyday stresses behind you (at least for a few hours).

Alternatively, you could just take the opportunity to do a bit of sunbathing while you have the chance to do so.

The park is, of course, also near to Greenwich market, where you will find loads of tasty treats on offer.

To reach Greenwich park, simply get the DLR to the Cutty Sark or Greenwich train station, both of which can easily be reached from the Montcalm Hotel.
