Tapas on the Thames

Summer in London is something truly special.

The sun shines over the Thames, the city slows down a bit and everyone takes any excuse they get to be outside as much as they can.

Dinner al fresco is obviously a must-do, with extra brownie points if:

  1.  it’s by the River
  2. you don’t have to queue for a table at said dinner spot
  3. there’s bubbly aplenty
