Rooftop bar London

Rooftop-grade: 8/10
Prime season: May-Sept
Residents: 13 millions
Climate: maritime

London do not have many skyscrapers which results in some "lower" rooftop bars. The views from the terraces here are still quite magical with the River Thames and the city as scenery.

Despite its rainy and pretty cold climate, London has a lot of rooftop bars and many of them are of really high quality. Geographically, they are quite scattered, although most are located in the central parts of London. But even the business district and Shoreditch boasts cool rooftops for those who live or move about in these areas.

If you want a little quieter atmosphere you should visit the sky lounges located in the outskirts of the city and for more party you should go to the more central roof terraces.
