With the Summer well and truly under way, we asked the team here which are their favourite spots to go in London. To compliment the location a notable song was also requested. Check out the playlist here: QF Summertime Tunes
Lora Galantini: “The Regents Bar & Kitchen, Regents Park for Prosecco with my mates after work.”
Lucy Charlesworth: “Kingly Court. A cold glass of rose, or Pimms – depends on the time of day”
Andrew Ackland: “Regents Park Open Air Theatre. Strawberry Daiquiri.”
Jez Frankel: “Holland Park Orangerie, a glass of very cold Prosecco and Roy Ayers on the gramophone…..:
Jamie Roper: “The Castle roof garden in Angel with a pint of very cold San Miguel.”
Lies Deneys: “A nice thing to do is Somerset House Open Air film screening. What a setting for a classic film or even an art film. A nice glass of cold crisp white wine…. The last film I saw there was last year in Summer, Wim Wenders’ Wings of Desire with Nick Cave.”
Sam Taylor: “Three Colts pub in Buckhurst Hill so I don’t have to suffer the sweltering central line in to London! A pint of orangeboom or a bottle of Moretti.”
Alex Bertschin: “Victoria park, with a cold brew coffee.”
As we say, “Bye Bye” to winter and “Hello!” to spring, here’s some music that makes us feel like spring has sprung!
But have we missed spring and is this now summer??
