London has something for everyone. As a richly diverse capital city it’s inevitable that there will be vents, launches, openings, exhibitions, festivals and gatherings every night of the week. There’s never a dull moment to be had.
Here are Clarendon’s tips for those looking for a moment to remember this summer;
King’s Cross Station’s giant waterslide
What’s the best way to wake yourself up as you head into work, or on your way home after a long day? A waterslide, obviously. That’s what those who’ve built this waterslide by King’s Cross hope anyway. It’s free to use but you need to book your slot. And bring your swimming costume.
Buskers on the Southbank
Don’t just whizz past a busker thinking they’re not worthy of your attention, for the simple reason that it might be someone you love! This past weekend tourists didn’t spot legendary Niles Rodgers as he played guitar and sang on the Southbank by the Royal Festival Hall. It’s part of the Southbank’s Festival of love this summer.
London’s first trampoline park opens to the public this month. It’s sure to be a big hit and if nothing else it’s a great way to keep fit in the summer. The trampoline park is over in Barking – the best way to get rid of the strains of the day and bounce your way through it.
White Walkers and dinosaurs
Did you spot the White Walkers taking the tube to promote the latest season of Game of Thrones? It’s hardly likely to be the last promotional event you’ll see in London this summer. Lifelike dinosaurs took to the streets to promote the opening of summer blockbuster Jurassic World. Keep your eyes peeled!
Carsten Höller’s slides
At the Hayward Gallery this summer see art in a different way with Carsten Höller’s installation. Not far from Waterloo it’s part of an experiential exhibition that is about exploring perceptions and decision-making. Visitors encounter a range of situations (including which door to walk through at the entrance) and ponder if each decision they make has an effect.
