Rooftops are definitely getting a lot more use these days, with cinemas and diners, and now Selfridges are opening theirs up for Crazy Golf for the summer. It's only open from 12pm - 7pm, and you need to buy timed-entry tickets. Full details below.
"This summer Selfridges London will reopen its legendary roof to launch The Big Rooftop Tea & Golf Party, as part of the Big British Bang - our all-encompassing creative homage to all things British.
Opening on 31 May and running throughout the summer, The Big Rooftop Tea & Golf Party will transform the roof into a destination for a round of a crazy golf like no other and a 100% organic tea-shop for the highest afternoon tea on Oxford Street.
Bompas & Parr’s crazy golf
The very crazy, cake-based 9-hole golf course is designed by British food architects, Sam Bompas and Harry Parr, with each jelly, icing and fondant-clad hole representing one of London’s most famous landmarks. Open from 12 noon until 7pm each day, find out how you can play and buy your timed entry tickets here.
The highest tea on Oxford Street
The 100% organic Daylesford Cafe will serve a traditional British afternoon tea, with a twist. Open from 12 noon until 10pm each day, the Selfridges roof will be the destination for a royal lunch, a proper afternoon tea and summer evening drinks and dinner, all six stories above London’s busiest shopping street.
The rooftop will be accessible via the lift in the Ground Floor Fragrance Hall. Don't miss out; stay tuned for details of how you can join us at summer’s coolest place to eat and play - The Big Rooftop Tea & Golf Party."
