We all know the one thing that makes Balham better at the weekend is SUNSHINE! Well, today you’re in luck because it’s already ready blimmin warm and set to stay this way for the day. So ‘how can we bask in its glory?’ we hear you cry…

Go Green – we’re spoilt for choice with Tooting Commons, Clapham Common and Wandsworth Common all just a few short strides away. Grab your picnic basket and a Frisbee and channel your chilled out festival vibes

Get wet – yup – Tooting Bec Lido is a cracker of a treat on a hot day. Grab your towel and get in line (get there early to avoid queues that spiral round the carpark) to keep cool and strengthen your ‘I’m disguising sunbathing as exercise’ game.

Dine al-fresco – Balham has many good drinky-foody spots but when the sun shines you’ll want to head to one with a beer-garden. Our faves include The Exhibit, Avalon, The Balham Bowls Club and The Devonshire for garden vibes or The Regent, Firefly, Foxtrot & Ginger and Bodeans for more urban pavement vibes – all equally strong food and drink games.

Get your brunch on – OK so we know this kind of is the same as dine-al-fresco but really this is as much about people-watching as it is avocado on toast combos. Head to Balham’s brunch mecca that is, Hildreth Street, and go earwig conversations and watch the beautiful people outside the likes of M!lk, Brickwood, H Street Deli, Blackbird Bakery – and then move to the wine-tasting shop or We Brought Beer if that’s your thing.


Happy Sunny Sunday!
