Skylight RooftopFrom 3rd May 2018, Skylight returns with croquet lawn games, World Cup screenings and Wimbledon on the big screen on top of Tobacco Dock. The summer season brings live entertainment, croquet, one-off parties, resident DJ collectives, rooftop yoga and some scenic sunsets. Set on the top three levels of a former car park in Wapping, the 600 capacity Skylight has multiple bars, indoor and outdoor seating areas, and two street food stalls, all set against some of the finest views in the city - you can see The Shard, The Gherkin and the Walkie Talkie from here. Grab a seat on the upper level for prime views and extended sun rays before enjoying a spectacular show of yellows, oranges and pinks when the sun sets in the shadow of London's most famous buildings. Food wise, visitors can choose between burgers and souvlaki with Flip Side and Yiro taking over the kitchens and a new refreshing seasonal cocktail menu has been added alongside spritzes, pitchers, bubbly and wine. Book in for a game of croquet on the upper deck or, if the British weather isn't on your side, there's two playing areas inside. If fancy footwork is more your style, try your hand at the digital penalty shootout.
