London Bridge City’s “Summer By The River” offers free events and festivities

10 June – 30 September, London Bridge

London Bridge City’s Summer By The River returns on 10th June for over three months of free events and festivities!.

The riverside between London Bridge and Tower Bridge will be home to al-fresco drinking and pop-up eateries. Summer by the River will also offer a full-packed programme of free entertainment, screenings and activities from 21st June.


LONDON Bridge’s Summer by the River is one of my favourite summer events. Now the weather is hot, hot, hot,

What’s more, it’s also one of my favourite areas of London. You can take in the riverside ambience and beautiful city skyline while enjoying your time out in the sunshine!

Piazza by the Pier

At London Bridge City Pier will be Piazza by the Pier, hosted by renowned British chef Jimmy Garcia and the infamous Jimmy’s Pop Up team. Those after a flavour of Italy in the city can head down to Piazza by the Pier. Pizzas are cooked over open fires and you can also couple with this summer’s must-have cocktail, the spritz. Jimmy’s team will even be on hand to guide guests on how to make their own perfect sourdough pizza. You can also finish the pizza yourself in the wood-fired pizza oven. A pre-booked 3-course interactive pizza party dining experience is £39.00 per person. Or you can book ahead in one of the Mediterranean-themed pagodas for a group get together.

Riverside Terrace

Summer by the River will also feature the Riverside Terrace bar at The Scoop, designed to represent a collage of Mediterranean coastal towns and bring this iconic and picturesque architecture to London Bridge City. Drawing inspiration from the lime-washed towns of Greece. The Riverside Terrace is the perfect setting to enjoy an Ice Cold Pint of Madri Excepcional, a Malfy con Limone Spritz, a Lynchburg Lemonade or a Graham’s White Port & Tonic.

Good Times Rolls

To complement the bar service Good Times Rolls will be delighting adults and children alike in creating delicious ice cream treats. The bar’s kitchen will be serving up a mouth water selection of small plates and tapas dishes to enjoy in the London sunshine.
