In Search of the 3 Fs – Food, Fresh Air & Fun in London
When you’re in search of the 3 Fs, those crucial things that make your visit to London memorable, the team at South Point Suites are always on hand to whisper their insider recommendations in your ear. Here are some of our summer tips for finding food, fresh air and fun!
Whether you’re feeling ravenous, in need of a pick-me-up or just getting a bit snacky, you needn’t venture far to satisfy your appetite. Our Bermondsey Street neighbours offer everything you need – just steps from your door.
Not only do the pasta dishes served up by Flour & Grape take the South Point Suites ‘Carbohydrate Crown’ for deliciousness, but watching the chefs make each and every one fresh is a pasta show in itself. Go all in with full portions or order a table-full of small plates. There’s something for everyone.
The Watch House espresso bar is guaranteed to sort out any afternoon slumps but don’t limit yourself to sipping coffee. They also offer the best sourdough bread within a 20 mile radius and the cakes? Well, the cakes are worth cheating on diets (and lovers?) for.
F*CKOFFEE is always on our recommendations list. Those cheeky lunchtime rebels serve up naughty home baking, monster-sized sandwiches and smoothies with names we cannot say for risk of offending our grandmothers. Go for the food, stay for the rockin’ cafe soundtrack!
There are a number of green spaces nearby, all within walking distance – some even right across the road from the hotel. However, if you’re looking for something a little bit more adventurous, how about a cool-off in one of London’s many outdoor swimming pools? Take the trip south to SE18 to Hornfair Park and take a dip in the Charlton Lido.
Or, if you’re in no mood to exert yourself, what about an evening at an open-air floating cinema? Take a sunset cruise along the Thames with Movies on the River. After sundown, enjoy classic flicks like Jaws, Some Like It Hot and Dirty Dancing under the stars.
Londoners are almost always ready for a fun time and while you stay with us at South Point Suites, we want to make sure you have a fun time too. Dance a sea shanty in Greenwich (yes, really), hop on board the Elvis Dinner Cruise (why not?) or explore London Bridge’s ‘Summer By The River’ festival for tasting sessions, workshops and a sunshiney mixture of entertainment.
If you’re keen to stay in the Bermondsey Street vicinity, book a class with Peter Layton at London Glassblowing, do a spot of urban beekeeping and craft beer tasting with Hiver Beers or get involved in the reverie of the street’s Wednesday night gallery opening parties.
Have a brilliant time!
