When it comes to rooftops, London has some of the best! No matter what kind of night you're trying to have or the area you're in there's a rooftop for you.

London is a city of ever-changing bars & restaurants so it can be hard to keep up, but there's a few staples that are unlikely to be going anywhere any time soon.

Check out our Top 10 London Rooftops below!

Sky Garden

Sky Garden is located at 20 Fenchurch Street, on the top floor of the building most commonly known as 'the walkie-talkie building' because of its distinctive shape.

Sky Garden has incredible 360 degree views all across London and on a clear day you'll be able to see Tower Bridge & The Tower of London, The Shard and St Paul's.

There are several restaurants in the Sky Garden including The Darwin Brasserie which serves amazing brunch food on the weekends!

Booking isn't 100% necessary however it is highly recommended.

Jin Bo Law

Jin Bo Law is one of London's lesser known and smaller rooftops, typically filled with City professionals after work and boasting incredible views of the city!
Jin Bo Law is only a small bar so it's best to book a table - particularly if you're looking for one of the limited outside tables!

Madison is one of the best known and staple rooftops in London - with incredible views over St Paul's Cathedral it's the spot to go during the day or night!
Madison gets very busy with City professionals and tourists so it's best to book a table.  The rooftop is on the 6th floor of the New Change shopping area with security at the elevators so you won't get up without a reservation at peak times. 
During colder months Madison offer patio heaters and blankets at their outdoor tables so it's the perfect spot year-round. 
Prices aren't cheap here but the views and cocktails are worth the price tag!

LSQ is short for Leicester Square, and the LSQ Rooftop definitely gives you incredible views of Leicester Square below and beyond, all the way to the London Eye and St Paul's in the distance!

LSQ also offers a great brunch on the weekends but is a fun spot no matter when you visit!

The Sushi Samba location also in the Heron Tower on the top floors is equally as good!

Lost in Brixton

It's definitely a rooftop - it doesn't have a view, but it does have a great vibe!  Jenn used to live only a few minutes walk from this bar so it was a regular for us!  Lost in Brixton is a pretty casual bar, although you need to make sure you have a reservation as it gets booked up pretty quick!
One of the best things about Lost is the community food options - as it sits above Brixton Village instead of Lost adding a kitchen, they decided you should simply order food from any one of the little restaurants downstairs and have it delivered right to your table! 

Dress Code: Casual
Price: ££
Address: Brixton Village, Coldharbour Lane

Bar Elba

It's often overlooked but Bar Elba probably has some of the best views in London!  It has a huge deck area with numerous bar points and tons of seating - it also runs themes such as Caribbean in summer and ice skating during winter so it's always a fun place to head for a drink!
