We are well and truly in the summer time now and it looks like the weather is going to be glorious today - so take advantage with our outdoor activites below.

1. Play a spot of table tennis

This free table tennis pop up means you can play, compete, learn or just watch at the tables dotted around Jubilee Place Mall and the West Wintergarden with host Ping!

Jubilee Place Mall and the West Wintergarden, until August 16.

2. Have a river side drink with Ian McKellen

Sir Ian's Limehouse pub The Grapes is just a short walk from Canary Wharf and offers a front row seat the the River Thames, which is a perfect place to watch the sun go down behind Canary Wharf. If you get peckish, we recommend the “Sir Ian” Meaty Shepherds Pie (£16.95)

Narrow Street, open until 11pm on Mondays

3. Relax at an urban beach

BeachEast at the Olympic Park is the UK’s largest urban beach and a great place to regress back to childhood and build sand castles without tanyone judging you - with 1,000 tonnes of sand alongside a paddling pool and a funfair there is a lot of fun to be had.

Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, until August 31, 10am-10pm
