Best Of British Summertime

It's that time of the week again. Yes folks, it's our Tuesday Top Five.

It's also summertime. It's actually sunny out. And what with Glastonbury just around the corner we decided that this week's Top 5 had to be the best bits of the British summer. And let's face it, it's often short, so we must embrace it! 

So without further ado, and in no particular order, here's what we've got...

1. Andymonium, ahem Wimbledon

2. Fabs (the underrated classic, the King of the lollies)

3. Festivals 

4. Hittin'the beach (and feelin'the burn)

5. Bank holidays

What's your favourite summer pastime?


  1. I'm sorry, but the true underground king of the Summer ice lolly is (and always will be!) the mighty Nobbly Bobbly.

  2. Nobbly Bobbly is a good one. Also in the running was the push-up lolly and obviously the screwball.

  3. Beer gardens, cider lollies and rounders.

    Quite liking the reclaiming of bandstands as well and the number of tea dances cropping up. Though I am finding if you go to too many you start sounding like Celia Johnson.

  4. Cruising down the seafront (or anywhere really) in an old VW and beach BBQ's!

  5. I'm sorry but the Twister ice-lolly is a classic and takes some beating, the chocolate on Fab ice-lollies always seemed a little misguided to me!

  6. I think a Fat Frog beats a Twister!

  7. Rolling in the grass. Sneezing lots.
