So, it may feel like spring has taken longer to arrive than it has for Barry Manilow to come out, but after this glorious weather we’ve all been basking in, it looks like it’s finally here! There’s no better way to embrace the sunshine than to ascend ten floors and kick back with a cold one whilst casting your eye over the delights of London City.
Also making for a great first date…
What’s not to love? Apart from maybe her if she’s a Catfish.
