Enjoy the London summer
Have you ever wanted to go to a beach party, but you are stuck in London for the summer? Now the perfect place for that exists: the first Thameside beach opens in Fulham - not only as a place to chill but also as a BYO alfresco drinking and street food dining experience.
BYO booze, come on down and laze around on the white sandy beach, with palm trees, painted beach huts, summer cocktails and loads of fun. Doze in the deckchairs, be idle on the grass or choose your seating, at feasting tables, daybeds and beach huts, or simply lounge the day away in a deckchair on the beach. You can even go as a family with kids to enjoy the beach, as kids are very welcome on weekends until 5pm.
Concerning the BYO, they came up with a unique concept: you bring the spirits and the mixologists will create a delicious cocktail. On their website, you will find the list of the cocktails, with alcohol they suggest you bring to go with your cocktail of choice. The rules are: each person can bring Either 1 bottle of wine, prosecco, Champagne, 35cl bottle of spirits such as vodka, gin or rum or 6 cans of beer/cider. Sharing the beach venue this summer are four great street food stands which were chosen as the best London has to offer.
If you are afraid on the unpredictable British summer, don't worry, they got you covered under the pergola or inside the beach huts - quite over 300 covered seats. You can even book one of the beach huts (up to 8 people), or one of our beach daybeds (up to 15 people seated). They are running from 10th May - 3rd October but most of the events are already sold out and tickets are now available at the door. Don't hesitate to go there, it is worth it!
