Summer in the city

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

The UK has had the perfect start to summer already and we’ve heard that the wonderful weather is set to continue for a little longer. So, if you’re in London and have some spare time on your hands, then here are just some of the many things you can do during the summer in the capital.

Explore the parks
With almost 50% of London being green space, you’re never too far from a place to escape to and enjoy the summer sun. Amongst the open spaces and parks, there are eight royal parks all offering a variety of attractions and beautiful scenery including Hyde Park, Regent’s Park, Kensington Gardens and Richmond Park.

The best part? Exploring the parks is totally free. And if you’re after a little extra, there’s always something to do – from lounging in deck chairs and eating ice-creams, to rowing a boat on the lake and or hitting some balls on the tennis courts.

Take the plunge
When the summer heat gets too much, why not head to one of the city’s many outdoor lidos and dive straight in to cool off? One of the biggest lidos is the Grade II-listed Parliament Hill Lido which measures 60 metres by 20 metres. Other popular lidos include London Fields Lido, Tooting Bec Lido, Brockwell Lido and Charlton Lido.

And with plenty of additional facilities available at the lidos – from cafes and bars to fitness studios and loungers, it’s the perfect place to spend a summer’s day.

Quench your thirst
Enjoying the summer sun can be thirsty work. So, whether it’s a pitcher of Pimm’s, an ice-cold pint or a refreshing mocktail, there’s no better way to quench your first than with a nice cold refreshment.

And London is packed with pubs and bars with beautiful outdoor spaces, quirky beer gardens and stunning roof terraces, so you won’t be short of a place or two to soak up the sun and enjoy a cold drink.

If you’re in London this summer and need a place to stay then why not stay with us at The Hive? Summer accommodation available until 1st September 2018. To find out more, or to book, please contact the onsite management team at The Hive, who will be happy to help.

Exams done? University finished? It can only mean one thing… it’s summer time!

You’ve been busy working hard over the past few months and now it’s time to relax and have some fun over summer. So, what have you got planned? From shopping trips and picnics, to working and internships, there are many reasons why you might be in London over the summer months. And while you’re in the city, why not make The Hive your choice of accommodation?

Between 3rd July and 2nd September, we’re opening our doors to the general public – as well as students, and welcome you to stay with us for summer. We provide hassle-free, all-inclusive accommodation, which makes staying at The Hive the perfect solution for flexible and affordable London city living throughout the summer months.

So, if you stay with us at The Hive, what can you expect? Well, where do we start? How about a choice of luxurious Studio rooms all complete with their own private en-suite bathroom, study space and fully fitted kitchen? Meaning, after a hard day doing your thing in the city, you can cook up a storm in the kitchen, then kick back and relax in the comfort of your own space.

And for those days you want to socialise with others, you’re not restricted to your room. We have lots of communal areas for you to enjoy too. Grab a snack from the vending area, compete to become king or queen of the pool table in the games area, catch up with some work in the study area or watch some TV in the common room. But that’s not all. You’ll love taking in the beautiful views on The Hive’s landscaped roof terrace, especially as the sunsets – definitely worthy of an Instagram or two!

That’s the accommodation, now the location. Bustling with hip and ultra-trendy coffee shops, cocktails bars and eateries, The Hive is located in the heart of the ever increasingly popular Bethnal Green. And you haven’t far to go to explore other districts of the city, with the likes of Shoreditch, Brick Lane, Whitechapel and Aldgate all within close proximity. And when you want to get out and about in London throughout the summer, it’s quick and easy from The Hive, as we’re just a stone’s throw away from Bethnal Green underground station.

So, with a combination of luxurious rooms, modern social spaces and a desirable location, what’s not to love? We even provide free Wi-Fi for you to stay connected and up to date with what’s happening in the world!
