Top 7 Best-Rated Beer Gardens in London

With fairly irregular and unreliable weather, London is not the world’s most prepared city when it comes to the warm end of the elements. The grand majority of London homes are not built with air conditioning, which makes the hot Summer days a little unbearable for those of us who wish we could hide away from the heat by staying indoors.

The solution – sitting outdoors (in the shade, of course) with a cold drink!
