UK’s Best Rooftop Gardens
It might be wet and rainy right now, but spring time is just around the corner and we’re sure you’re looking forward to spending your time in the sunshine. Being one of the UK’s number one artificial grass suppliers for homes, we’re big believers in spending time in the garden. That being said, sometimes you just need to get out of the house. We’ve compiled a list of some of the UK’s best rooftop bars for you to enjoy (complete with artificial grass)!
The Belgrave Music Hall and Canteen in Leeds is a vibrant venue with an amazing atmosphere no matter what floor you’re on. Its crowning glory, however, is its fantastic roof terrace complete with rooftop bar. A city sun-trap with playful patches of artificial grass garden make Belgrave one of Leeds’ busiest rooftop gardens. Patrons can relax in deckchairs surrounded by potted plants for an urban jungle experience or sip beer underneath one of the roof terrace’s various canopies complete with fairy lights.
The Varsity Roof Terrace, Cambridge
If you’re looking for a roof with a view, then you’ll want to visit The Varsity Roof Terrace in Cambridge. Part of The Varsity Hotel & Spa, this roof terrace is only open seasonally and will likely be making its summertime debut in April this year. With a stunning aerial view of Cambridge and a selection of delicious cocktails, this upscale venue makes the perfect destination for evening drinks.
Rooftop Gardens, Norwich
Hailed as Norwich’s first rooftop restaurant, Rooftop Gardens offers a panoramic view of the Norwich skyline as well as a delightfully modern menu. Catch a unique view of some of Norwich’s most famous landmarks including the Norwich Cathedral, Castle, and Carrow Road and unwind with a selection of classic cocktails with a “Rooftop” twist.
The Royal Exchange, Manchester
The Royal Exchange Theatre is a vibrant storytelling space with a wide variety of plays and performances to choose from. On top of the grade II listed building sits a gorgeous rooftop terrace complete with artificial grass lawn. The Royal Exchange’s rooftop garden isn’t usually open to the public and this has earned it its “secret garden” status. That being said, the Royal Exchange’s rooftop terrace has played host to one-off exclusive events such as cocktail making classes so keep an eye out, you never know when you’ll get the opportunity to visit one of Manchester’s best kept secrets.
