Get a free history lesson while sipping on floral cocktails at this secret rooftop bar
Rooftop bars have become all the range in London over the summer.
But with millions of people flocking to the capital, they can get pretty busy…
With the weather getting better it’s a perfect opportunity to get into the great outdoors, and enjoy the longer evenings.
That’s where Midnight Apothecary comes in. Offering “a pocket of wilderness in the midst of the urban landscape.”
Tucked inside the Brunel Museum, the hidden roof garden is located just 15 mins from Waterloo on the Jubilee line, and provides a haven of idyllic bliss.
You can relax around the firepit; drink floral themed cocktails with ingredients grown in their garden; cuddle up to watch the sun set over the river, and descend underground into the Brunel Tunnel Grand Entrance Hall for a guided tour.
The Grand Entrance Hall to Brunel’s Thames Tunnel, the world’s first beneath a river, is an underground chamber half the size of Shakespeare’s Globe.
With cocktail in hand, you can take a free tour and learn how the young Brunel nearly drowned building the ‘eighth wonder of the world’ and how, before the trains came, it was the world’s first underground theatre, echoing with applause for acrobats, tightrope walkers and serenaders.Visit the Brunel Museum and Midnight Apothecary at Railway Avenue, Rotherhithe, London SE16 4LF
