The heatwave has hit and there’s just one thing on our minds: a seasonal BBQ.

If you’re craving flame-grilled food and don’t have a garden, never fear – there are a handful of BBQ friendly parks in London where you can legally get your sizzle on. Just bring your equipment, blankets and buckets of suncream and enjoy a day out in the sun, while it lasts!

Highbury Fields, Islington

BBQ Friendly Parks in London

Caledonian Park, Islington

Islington was one of the first London boroughs to introduce BBQ-friendly spaces. Caledonian Park, with copious amounts of open green spaces, makes a great option for a summer BBQ. There’s also a children’s play area and a court for football, basketball and tennis. Market Road, N7 9PL

Cantelowes Gardens, Camden

Local Camden gem Cantelowes Gardens is in a prime position, just behind Camden Town, so when the sun goes down and the BBQ has got you sufficiendly stuffed, you can party the night away on Camden’s high street. There’s also a skate park at this park, too. 234 Camden Road, NW1 9AE
