7 Best ice cream parlours in London to beat the heat this summer

This year, the UK has experienced the hottest July – ever. Temperatures are expected to soar to an unprecedented 39C, and the heat wave is taking over all our lives (and insta feeds!). We can think of no better way to cool down and beat the heat other than a delicious dose of ice cream and gelato from the best parlours in London.

Here are our top picks:

1. Gelupo

Established in 2010, Gelupo makes some of the finest gelato in the heart of London. Their Gelati and Sorbetti menu is updated daily, so if they run out of your favorite flavour don’t let that stop you from trying their other gorgeous creations, including some boozy varieties. Find them on 7 Archer Street in Soho.

Chin Chin’s claim to fame is the fact that all their ice-cream is churned using liquid nitrogen – right in front of you! If you’re visiting during the colder months, then opt for their famous hot chocolate. They’ve expanded into multiple branches but their flagship store in Camden is still a local favorite. Cost for two is about £15.

3. Soft Serve Society

Soft serve ice cream is so called because of lesser milk fats and more air as compared to regular hard ice cream, and this in turn makes soft serve super duper creamy. Head to Soft Serve Society in Boxpark Shoreditch or Market Hall Victoria for some premium soft serve delights in unique flavours & colours!
