Dalston Roof Park

I have mixed feelings about this. Usually when I find somewhere amazing, I can't wait to come home and brag about it on the blog.

This place, well, I'm reluctant to share. And yet, I immolate myself for my art. Plus Time Out featured it so screw secrecy.

This is, as the name implies, a rooftop garden, with a tab, sangrias, and on occasion corn on the cob.

It's so rare to get some respite from the flat oppression of London's uneventful geography. A view, a larger share of sky. Expansion of the horizon.

Priceless on a summer afternoon. Use in moderation, please.
