30th April 2018

It’s finally rooftop season, so take your socialising to new heights with this list of things to do over the bank holiday weekends. We like to think that we’ve put together a list of some of the quirkiest (and let’s not forget cheapest) rooftops London has to offer.


  1. The Culpeper Rooftop

Get ‘An Introduction to Organic Container Growing’ on The Culpeper Rooftop, a gastropub with a rooftop garden. Grower Janelle will offer knowledge on urban gardening, how to plant, grow and harvest cucumbers and a variety of flowers in small spaces. Ticket price includes lunch made of produce harvested by participants, which is served at the foot of an 8ft gherkin. What more could you ask for?!
