Neverland: London’s Hottest Beach

Dreaming of an escape to the beach? Just a short trip to Fulham in SW London is as far as you need to go to enjoy feet-in-the-sand drinking and dining at Neverland London.

Fulham’s first Thameside beach is open for business this summer. Neverland brings BYOB drinking and street food dining to a sandy beach on the banks of the Thames for a beachy fun day out. Palm trees, grassy and sandy areas, lounge chairs and sun are the perfect equation for a beach escape.

What’s inside? The £10 entry fee gives you access to the beach all day-- sit on long banquet tables under the sun or grab a free deck chair for some sunbathing. And of course, open the bottle(s) of rose you brought along with you! You can also create your own cocktails from the Unleaded Bar-- you bring the rum, vodka, etc, and the bartenders will mix up a drink for you (cocktails all £5).

Hungry? Check out some of London’s hottest street food stalls including Le Rac Shack, serving raclette in all forms. Check out the French Poutine, French fries with onion gravy and melted Raclette cheese (£5) for an update on the French classic. Other delicacies include bao from Le Bao- choose 2 bao for £8 (fried chicken, braised pork belly, grilled goat cheese), tacos from Taco Dave- two tacos for £7 (Dr Pepper & chipotle brisket, hallomui tacos, blackend ancho chicken tacos).

Lucabuca wood fired oven pizzas are another great choice, as is the sharing platter (£12) with rosemary & garlic bread, charcuterie, mozzarella, caper berries, olives and rocket. Churros and ice cream are for sale as well- because who ever heard of a trip to the beach without ice cream?

Coming with a group? Book a day party bed or a beach hut and hire a “Beach Butler” with a mixing trolley, yours to mix up bespoke cocktails to match up with the booze you’ve brought. And don’t forget to book up a game of petanque or beer pong!

Reserve in advance to avoid the queues on the weekend.

Open Wednesday to Friday, 6pm to 11pm, Saturday 12pm- 11pm, Sunday and Bank Holidays 12pm- 9pm.
Until 3 October 2017.

Entry £10, granting access with BYOB to covered seating and the beach. Group bookings of 6 or more have access to a beach hut (£80), while groups of 12 to 25 have access to a day party bed (£120). Petanque courts and beer pong tables are available to hire.
