1. The Chin Chin Club, Soho
The liquid nitrogen connoisseurs have just opened their new dessert club in Soho. New creations include a Choux-wich that sandwiches pistachio and olive oil ice cream between a fluffy choux bun. Or try their new avocado ice cream or sticky toffee pudding sundaes? Everything sounds wacky but is sure to be equally as wonderful.

2. Milk Train, Covent Garden
Milk Train’s deluxe soft-serve ice cream comes in quirky flavours like matcha and toppings like rainbow sprinkles and Oreos. Even better – all their cones are surrounded by candyfloss. A huge cloud of sugary joy that’ll have everyone staring after you with envy.

3. Soft Serve Society, Shoreditch
Another champion of the soft-serve game, don’t expect a standard Mr Whippy but instead choose from a sundae, cone, freakshake or cup, and flavours like vanilla affogato, espresso or matcha. They also do huge clouds of candyfloss with popping candy to really feed your inner child.
