    Free Rooftop Views

    7 stops in 1-1/2 hours

    The only thing better than London in the sunshine is rooftop views of London in the sunshine.  Start at Waterloo and make seven stops ending with a rooftop drink or lunch:

    National Theatre The Royal National Theatre Garden public terrace on level 3 boasts both London Eye and river views.

    The Post Building — Although only 9 stories up, the rooftop terrace offers uninterrupted views of the City given the lack of tall buildings around it.  To access, look for a sign off New Oxford Street that reads 'Public Roof Terrace'.  You will need to sign-in, provide ID and go through security scanners before proceeding to the rooftop. 
    Opening hours: 10 am — 7 pm
    Museum Street, London WC1A 1PB

    The Culpeper — Located close to Brick Lane, Spitalfields and Shoreditch High Street, The Culpeper offers a great view of East London.  
    In addition to the pub, restaurant and hotel, the 1,400 square foot rooftop includes a working 500 square foot garden where garnishes, herbs and salad used in the dishes are grown – giving 'farm' to table a whole other meaning.  Stop in for an impromptu drink and bar bites or book the Regen Rooftop Set Lunch Menu £35 served 12 pm — 3 pm.  
    Tip : Request a table for 2 — 4 along the rooftop entrance wall to benefit from some shade.
    Take advantage of these views while the sun is shining!
