Choose the Summer Outdoor Activities in London

If you are a Londoner and still undecided as to how you want to spend this summer here are some ideas that will offer you some exciting outdoor activities.

Somerset House: Go to Somerset House. This is a hotspot as the summers make it come alive with all splendor with its neoclassical edifice on the Strand and lovely courtyard. It attracts all with its open-air gigs and films and in winters it is crowded for ice-skating. During summers London city’s most eclectic film programmes will be there.

Bandstand in Northampton Square: London's open spaces always had charming bandstands. In 2008, Thomas Muirhead and Ian Sutherland floated the hosting acoustic gigs. For cultural trips, you can try regular gigs starting in May and going on until October with at least 20 bandstands active in Northampton Square and Islington.

Opera in Holland Park: Unlike other opera that conjure up frenzied people and places the Opera in Holland Park is totally different. The OHP stages performances in the west London Park under a canopy with 1,000 people seated there.

Bird-watching in Barnes: Think of a short travel to the London Wetland Centre for some bird-watching especially the migrating species such as ospreys. Free guided tours are available in the morning and evening.

Alexandra Palace: For essential summer city breaks Alexandra Palace is always best. It may not boast of the biggest golf course yet its 10-hole pitch gets rave reviews. A short picnic means you can take home produce from the Sunday farmers' market and have nice view of St Pauls, the BT Tower, the London Eye, the Gherkin and Canary Wharf.

You can also enjoy some short breaks on the People's Palace where a boating lake, rose garden and deer enclosure are very enchanting. The regular alfresco events include wonderful fireworks on Bonfire Nights.

Swimming at Brockwell Lido: London's outdoor swimming pools known as lidos exude great charm. Though not part of the Top 10s the Brockwell Lido in 1937 and in 2007 is a real marvel. There is a poolside cafe which starts the day for breakfast and doubles up as a bar and restaurant in the evening.

Rollerblading in Battersea Park: In England Battersea Park is perhaps the most fascinating. It gives the most stunning views of the Thames. There is an art gallery by the lake and a zoo for children. Explore it with skates. The skates happen on Saturday mornings in groups with the Japanese Peace Pagoda as the starting point.

Kayaking, West Reservoir: From a travel point of view Green Lanes may be traffic-choked at times, especially the road leading to Enfield. But the great Turkish restaurants are an unmistakable pull and the patches of watery heavens are great for water sports. Get the free kayak sessions at the Castle Canoe Club on Tuesdays and Sundays.

Parkour in Westminster: It is UK's first managed venue covering an area of 700 sq m site and be packed with walls, railing and platforms Leap is a platform to hone skills for the veterans as well as beginners.
