Seasons and The City: Spring Edition 12th May 2017

Spring is one of the loveliest times in the year. Summer is getting closer and the dynamism and vibrancy is taking over our moods. Even though nature is in its peak during spring, if you’re not in the countryside you can still live the best of the season right in the middle of London. Here we compiled the best ways to enjoy spring in the City of London:

Get artsy - The Londoners: Portraits of a Working City, c.1447 to 1980

London has been a career destination for many since the history. From chimney sweeps, waitresses to sportsmen and mayors, London has long been among the top destinations in the world for people seeking a promising job and career development. This exhibition which will last until 5th of July at London Metropolitan Archives is definitely worth a visit to see how London job scene has evolved via fifteenth century drawings and historical photographs.

Get drinks - Rooftop bar: Sky Lounge Bar

When is better than spring to enjoy a nice cocktail out on a rooftop? The Sky Lounge Bar, located on the 12th floor of the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel London – Tower of London is a premium destination bar. It offers a great selection of cocktails and drinks for you to enjoy across beautiful London panorama, overlooking the River Thames, the iconic Gherkin and St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Get lunch – Outdoor Terrace: The Culpeper, Spitalfields

What’s a better lunch spot for spring than a restaurant that grows its own herbs and vegetables on its botanical garden on the roof? The great news is that they opened their rooftop garden for the guests to enjoy their delicious menu offerings such as pancetta with snails, wild garlic and Jerusalem artichokes. Only a walking distance away from Aldgate East station, The Culpeper is definitely the greatest rooftop garden for lunch in the City to enjoy natural wines and unique flavours.

Get Oxygen – Greenspaces: Postman’s Park and St. Dunstan in the East

Spring is unimaginable without parks and greenspaces. Blossoming trees and warmer weather both call for more time spent outdoors. Luckily, being based in the City, you don’t have to go very far to get a lunch-break mindfulness. Our first recommendation is Postman’s Park for a little lunch getaway from the office. Grab your packed lunch or buy few bites from the nearby shops and enjoy this scenic park built in 1900 by Victorian painter and philanthropist G.F. Watts. Postman’s Park is a popular destination between City professionals and it offers many benches for you have your lunch on surrounding the beautiful garden centrepiece. The second City garden is St Dunstan in the East, which will make you feel secluded. If you know your botanic, you will especially appreciate this City Garden presenting range of plants. St Dunstan in the East is also available for hire for events with up to 45 attendees, which could be a great option for a reception evening.
