There are a few sure signs that summer has arrived in London. Rooftop bars are full, Aperol sales are increasing and at weekends, the parks across the city are brimming with many picnic-goers.

Maximising on the sociable summer weather, the Rosewood London is kicking off the season with the launch of their new pop-up on The Terrace. In association with pioneering English sparkling wine, Nyetimber, the Nyetimber Secret Garden is taking up residence in Rosewood’s iconic courtyard and will be open daily until 29th September. In amongst the colourful wisteria and luscious greenery, this outdoor sanctuary is the perfect place for locals and tourists alike to take in the summer weather with a fruity, refreshing drink.

With the buzz of the busy summer season noticeable at the Rosewood London, it was the perfect place to host our summer Connections Social in London. On Sunday evening, ahead of Experience Latin America, Alex, David and Silvia welcomed 30 friends of Connections to the charming Terrace for an evening of drinks and networking with industry peers. This fabulous evening was a great opportunity to catch up with familiar faces and enjoy the summer weather. Thank you to Alice and the team at Rosewood London for being such fantastic hosts.
