While ice rinks, winter wonderlands and Bavarian markets appear across the country this Christmas, the UK’s first ‘summer in winter’ beer garden is launching in central London for those who get the winter blues.

Built within an Eden Project-esque heated dome, Christmas trees will be replaced with tropical plants, roaring fires with summer heat and squashy sofas with ‘al fresco’ furnishings.

The ‘Corona Extra Summer’ pop-up beer garden will be open from Thursday December 15 to Saturday December 17 on Riverside Walkway at London’s Southbank between 1pm and 9pm each day.
