5 Exciting Things To Eat & Do In July

French celebrations, riverside picnics, and fish and chips by the sea.

We know we said this last month but summer is officially here. The days are longer, the moths are alive and well (and apparently obsessed with you), and that fan you bought last year is missing. But who cares about how stuffy your flat is when there are tennis matches to watch, French dishes to eat, and weekends primed for trips to the seaside.

We don’t know about you, but we’re going to celebrate Bastille Day on 14th July the only way we know how: with a plate of jambon noir de Bigorre and a never-ending stream of dishes that are made mostly of butter.

Leaving London and heading to the seaside is a mandatory summertime activity. One of our favourite day trips is to Margate.

Check out our guide to The Best Restaurants In Margate so you don’t end up running around like a headless seagull.

You probably exhausted the park picnic in the first 48 hours of sunshine this year. So instead of heading to the same patch of grass, get a takeaway from Crisp Pizza W6, our favourite pizza spot in Hammersmith, and walk to the river for a wholesome time by the water. A slice of gravity-defying margherita here, a messy handful of calzone there, and you’ve got an afternoon well spent.
