Get Outside: Top London terraces to dine in this spring
Enjoy the rising temperatures in one of London’s gorgeous outdoor dining spots
There’s something so charming about London in the sunshine. The parks and streets are brimming with people blissfully enjoying the bustling atmosphere of the city. London is jam-packed with fabulous food offerings, and we’ve rounded up some of our favourite al fresco spots to enjoy this spring.
The arrival of spring saw The Bloomsbury’s Dalloway Terrace receive its seasonal spruce. Gone were the cosy blankets and hot water bottles, replaced with a tropical jungle of colourful orchards and lush greenery to make your experience even more special. As the temperature rises, so will the retractable roof, making the terrace a sun-trap to enjoy the spring weather alongside a delicious meal and a cocktail or two.
Diners at The Marylebone’s 108 Bar are encouraged to get outside in the warmer months, with a chic dining space available to enjoy the buzz of Marylebone Lane. Whether your booked in for breakfast, lunch or dinner, this enchanting spot is the perfect place to indulge with a delicious meal as you watch the world go by.
Head to Granary Square in King’s Cross and spend a few hours at The Lighterman. Named after the Victorian Lightermen who worked on the flat-bottomed barges in the industrial age, the restaurant is anything but old fashioned: chic, wooden interiors open out to a beautiful terrace. The perfect place to retreat in this busy part of the city.

Sophisticated Spanish eatery Aqua Neuva is a fabulous choice for those looking to mark a special occasion. Inside is dark, moody and atmospheric, but step onto the open-air roof terrace for a whole different experience. Tantalising cocktails, upbeat music and views of the streets below await – perfect for celebrating in the sun.
Situated on the famous Covent Garden Piazza, Tuttons Brasserie and Bar offers a spacious and bustling central spot for a meal outdoors. It’s the ideal space to enjoy a few hours in the sun, serving classic, hearty meals in a low-key environment. It’s the perfect choice for guests looking to indulge in some quintessentially British grub while being entertained from afar by the eclectic performance artists that fill Covent Garden.
