Here’s How To Make The Most Of Autumn In The City


When the rain takes a…raincheck, it’s our duty to get out there and enjoy the cutest, cosiest season of the year.

Summer may have passed us by in a hot minute, but with that comes the return of autumn and we’re not unhappy about it. Autumn is the beloved season of crunchy leaves, cosy jumpers, pumpkin spice lattes, candles and general cuddliness. Sure, you might have to contend with some rainy days, but when it’s dry…autumn in the city is absolutely picturesque. And you’ve just gotta make the most of it. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Tanqueray to put together a guide to enjoying a lovely day out in London now that the sweater weather has hit.

From food, to entertainment, to whimsical outdoor activities we’ve got it all mapped out for you. And to top it all off, we’ll pick out the perfect Tanqueray Terrace where you can kick back, relax and enjoy a delicious cocktail from the definitive gin of true quality, Tanqueray. Plus, since the Tanqueray Terrace is a public, outdoor space – it’s your answer to London’s Tier 2 restrictions.

So, ready to step into a socially distanced autumn with Tanqueray? Find your bucket list below!

1. Watch a movie at an outdoor cinema

This cute activity is both covid-friendly and an adorable date idea! London has loads of amazing outdoor cinemas from drive-ins to rooftop options. Why not try The Luna Cinema or The Drive In Film Club at Ally Pally? Don’t forget to bring blankets and jumpers to snuggle up in. You can also bring your own food and drink with you so don’t forget to pack your Tanqueray and tonic – they even come in handy premixed Gin & Tonic bottles, no mixing required!

2. Wander round a food market
