1. Swim in a Lido.

What could be better than splashing about in the open air? There are Lidos all over London, including Tooting, Charlton, Finchley and London Fields.

Prices vary, but at London Fields, for example, it's £4.65 for an adult. Some councils offer free swimming for certain residents too.

10. Hire a deck chair in the park.

Most city parks will offer deckchair hire in the summer. For example, in Green Park, you can rent a chair up to three hours for under a fiver. Find out more here.
