The super cool rooftop at Skylight in Tobacco Docks
I love London in the summer sunshine, although it’s not always plentiful even in July. When it was I made the most of it, on rooftop bars and open-air concerts. And to guarantee some sunshine I left London – heading to Zurich to visit my sister Zoe and her boyfriend Tom, where they definitely aced the local guide business!

Errr, can anyone tell me how it’s August already? I’ve got two trips away booked – the first a return to beautiful Lisbon, which is very exciting given it’s almost four years since my last visit. The second, for the bank holiday weekend, might be a bit different in pace as we’ve hired a gorgeous villa in Menorca and I plan to largely laze by the pool in the sunshine! In between I’ve got some more live music to see, and hopefully a weekend out of London in or near the south coast… cross your fingers for some sunshine then too!
What does August hold for you?
