Severndroog Castle is opening late for cocktails, live music and incredible, panoramic views of London.

Hidden in Oxleas Woods in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, Severndroog Castle is a historic Grade II listed building located at the top of Shooter’s Hill, one of London’s highest points. The Gothic tower is opening late on Friday 3 May and there’ll be live music, cocktails and 360° views from the castle’s viewing platform. (Feature image: @mjarveli)

For an additional cost, you can also scoff on delicious bites from celebrated chef Christopher Hackett, as well as wine, beer and cocktails.
