Why not stay a while and chill out with a cocktail or two, too? It is summer, after all. Booking recommended.

Summer shopping bag

Whether you’re planning a summer staycation, a weekend break or just looking to capture a bit of that holiday spirit, the seema stripe straw shopper bag from Monsoon is the ideal accessory for any girl about town… or about beach! Super stylish and large enough for all your summer essentials, for just £40, we think it’s a bit of a bargain, too. 

New iced tea at Starbucks

It wouldn’t be summer without a cool and refreshing iced tea! But, if you’re looking for something a little bit different, make sure you check out the vast selection at Starbucks. Hibiscus, peach, matcha, lemonade, or the super fancy iced London Fog Tea Latte, whatever floats your boat, Starbucks has a brew for you!
