Thirsty Brits packed the streets today as areas across the country turned into outdoor bars as people took advantage of the good weather to go out for a drink.
In Battersea in southwestern London, people shopped, settled for a beer, and dined at various restaurants, as the area around Northcote Road is effectively walkable to promote social detachment.
Near Soho in central London, the hustle and bustle continued as people dined outdoors and enjoyed drinks with friends and family, with the streets closed and tables and chairs in the middle of the street.
On the coast, sun worshipers went to the beach in Brighton and enjoyed the hot July weather in deckchairs and strolled along the pier in shorts and hats.
It comes as pubs and restaurants prepare for the second Saturday of trading after the facilities open their doors for a bonanza on July 4th called "Super Saturday".
However, there was heavy rain last weekend as many were prevented from leaving their homes, but today's blazing sunshine could tempt revelers to get dressed and go out.
It comes after groups of young people got together in Leeds yesterday and drank with friends before getting stuck in kebabs, pizzas and fish and chips in the early morning.
In the meantime, outdoor pools were opened today as sun-seekers flocked to the south coast while Britain was on one sunny weekend with temperatures of around 23 ° C.
The British, who woke up in the blue sky today, splashed around Hampstead Heath this morning while others dared to jump onto Parliament Hill, where a lido reopened after months of closure.
Others went to the coast to soak up the sun on the beaches of Bournemouth and Brighton, while after a week of rain and cloudy skies, RVs were parked and campsites set up in Polzeath, Cornwall. Cricket also started today when clubs across the country took advantage of the fantastic weather.

Thousands of tax collectors still refuse to spill pints to the public, fearing that pubs will find it impractical and costly to serve customers while reducing capacity and maintaining social distance.
Fears of the spread of the corona virus, a new wave of outbreaks if the lock is loosened too quickly and extensively, and a second costly lock are also high among independent companies.
Tax collectors have told how difficult it is to stem millennial urge amidst crowded scenes in Soho, central London. Louise Chauvin, 26, who runs the Jaguar Shoes bar in Hoxton, told The Times: “It is quite difficult to tell customers, especially after two or three drinks, that they need to behave.
“You can't just get up and go to the bar and have a drink or go to another table and talk to someone you don't know. The problem we mostly have is that there is a table with pretty ladies and a table with pretty boys, and they just go over there and say, "All right, do you want a drink?" – You can't do that. & # 39;
Roy O & # 39; Keefe, owner of Tib Street Tavern in Manchester, said: "The older crowd doesn't seem to be getting in as much, it's all stock we sell at the moment – so you can say it's younger age group." # 39;
MailOnline reported that a pub in Oxfordshire has banned drinkers under the age of 25 because they cannot adhere to social distance rules. David Haines, owner of The Royal Standard, said younger drinkers are putting employees and customers at risk by not following the guidelines.
People under the age of 25 can remain in the Wallingford, Oxfordshire pub until 8:00 p.m., but not after that.
News of the pub's new rules was shared on Facebook, and many commented on the post, saying that the right decision had been made.
The post says: “Over the past three nights, we've attracted an unprecedented number of younger drinkers who refuse to follow social distance rules that endanger both our employees and our regular customers in the current climate.

The Royal Standard Pub in Oxfordshire has been flooded with drinkers and has taken its own measures to ensure that social distancing is better imposed
This Facebook post was published, explaining in the pub how drinkers under the age of 25 are asked to leave after 8 p.m.
"We apologize to those affected and will review this decision regularly until we are in safer times."
The move follows many pubs in the UK that are struggling to adapt to the new normal while the coronavirus pandemic continues.
A senior police officer predicted another attack on the coronavirus after facing “pub fights, drunk violence, and drunk drug-addicted fools” on July 4 – the first night the bars opened and opened their doors again and again began to serve.
Social distancing was declared tattered after jubilant drinkers called the time of closure and came to the nation's pubs.
Cities across the UK fluctuated to an extent that has not been seen since Boris Johnson over a hundred days ago.

The government has come under fire for lifting the restrictions too early, while Leicester is still fighting its own local outbreak. Many choose to stay at home for fear of driving a second nationwide wave.
But health minister Matt Hancock triumphed after the pubs returned and said to Sky & # 39; s Sophy Ridge: "I think that what I saw, although there are some contrary pictures, has been very, very largely people who acted responsibly.
“And this balanced message is so important – people should enjoy the summer safely, and of course the focus is both on enjoyment and safety.
"We all know, of course, that we are doing everything we can to get back to normal, but only where it is safe."
In the meantime, a single spreader forced a pub, vape bar, and Indian restaurant to close after drinking before later finding that it had tested positive for Covid-19.
The mysterious drinker visited the Lighthouse Inn in Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset before going to Vape Escape on Saturday during his pub crawl, locals have claimed.
A take-away driver from Saagar Indian had also been in the same pub as the man who was praised for “doing the right thing” by telling the companies he was visiting about his result.
As a precaution, the three event locations had to close, the premises cleaned and disinfected and all employees had to be tested.
Though Vape Escape has reopened, The Lighthouse Inn remains closed. The takeaway Indian food is also "temporarily" closed.

Vape Escape was also visited by the man, but they were able to open again thanks to negative test results and thorough "deep cleaning".

In the meantime, Durham Constabulary temporarily closed the number one bar in Darlington when officials decided that employees had no control over customer behavior.
The group also temporarily closed the Wheatsheaf pub in Chilton, County Durham, and accused the two venues of "irresponsible behavior."
Three pubs in West Yorkshire, Hampshire and Somerset had to close after drinkers tested positive for coronavirus.
Thousands of drinkers reopened their doors to the public after months of being blocked. However, over half remained closed.
The host of the Lighthouse Inn, Jess Green, said the experience was "stressful".
Ms. Green closed the pub and called at least 90 people who had left their contact details when they visited on Saturday.
She told BBC Radio 4's World At One, "The main thing that came to mind was that we had to make sure everyone was safe and that we contacted all of our customers.
“We took it on because test and trace can do it all, of course, but we took it on because we knew we had done it before it got out there. It took us all day, we finished around 10 a.m. last night.
"Our (list) was about 90 and there were actually more, but if they were in a social bubble or household, we took the main character and they spoke to the people they were with, so it could have been more . "

When asked what the experience was like, she said, "Stressful – that's probably the only word I can use."
About the closure, she said: “The pub will only be opened again when our seven employees have tested negative and we should get the test results back today.
“We decided to close the pub to protect our employees and customers. We completed a full cleaning of the pub following government instructions on Monday, so we were actually able to reopen.
& # 39; But we proactively made the decision to close – and we received a lot of positive feedback from the local community.
"The man who tested positive did the right thing to inform the companies he participated in so that we could inform customers and have everyone tested."
The Indian snack bar, Saagar Indian, has also made a note in the window that they had temporarily closed as a precaution.
Then they shared more news on social media and explained that one of their employees may have come into contact with the infected man.
They wrote: “It makes me sad to tell you everything that due to unforeseen circumstances we will shut down Saagar Indians until Friday.
& # 39; This is because one of the drivers was in the same pub as the person who tested Covid-19 positive.
“It wasn't an easy decision to make, but in these difficult times, health is a top priority.
"During this time, we will clean the entire building thoroughly to ensure that we are ready when it opens again."
"We look forward to seeing you all again soon."
Vape Escape was also visited by the man, but they were able to open again thanks to negative test results and thorough "deep cleaning".
The Village Home in Alverstoke, Hampshire, is one of three pubs that had to be closed after a customer tested positive for coronavirus
Owner Leanne Underhill said: & # 39; It was not the planned reopening and we were informed on Sunday that a customer who had visited us had tested positive.
& # 39; All of our employees have been tested and found to be negative. All customers have been informed in accordance with government guidelines.
& # 39; We followed all security guidelines and adopted customer names and numbers when entering the bar.
& # 39; Everyone could be contacted.
As soon as I received word of the positive test result on Sunday, I immediately closed the bar, locked it, and spoke to the NHS and the police, who informed us of the correct steps that we all followed.
"We cleaned the premises thoroughly and thoroughly and cleaned them with steam and also disinfected everything, including all customer areas such as the toilets."
The Fox and Hounds of Batley, Yorkshire wrote: "This morning I received a call from a customer who visited our pub on Saturday saying that he had tested positive for corona virus."
The Lighthouse Inn in Burnham-on-Sea said it was forced to close and contact customers who visited on Saturday after a customer tested positive for COVID-19
A closing announcement at the Number One Bar in Darlington states: “When the officers arrived on the premises, the music was too loud and there was no social distancing.
“The customers got up at the bar when the employees spoke to the officials. The staff stated that customers would not listen to their instructions and could not effectively control what was happening on the premises.
& # 39; The bar owner was drunk and argumentative. He didn't seem to be aware of the guidelines and certainly didn't follow them. & # 39;
The bar's Facebook page indicated that it was reopening for business.
Chief Inspector Neal Bickford said: “We would like to thank the responsible institutions, who have complied with all regulations, so that people can return to the pub safely and comfortably.
“We know that it was a difficult three months for both companies and night owls. It was great to see the vast majority of people who work with us.
"We will always try to work with those who need to improve, but unfortunately two rooms had to be closed on Saturday due to unacceptable behavior."
The Fox & Hounds in Batley, West Yorkshire, and the Village Home in Alverstoke, Hampshire, were also among the first pubs in England to be closed after the block restrictions were relaxed.
The Fox and Hounds wrote on Facebook: “I received a call from a customer who visited our pub on Saturday to say that they had tested positive for corona virus.
“When they visited, they were unaware of this and had no symptoms, but after seeing a post from another place they had visited, they thought it best to do a test that was positive. We will not name this person for data protection reasons. & # 39;
Management consulted with NHS Track and Trace. All employees have been tested for the virus and the pub is being thoroughly cleaned.
"We know that this is a scary time, but we want to make sure that our customers' security is our top priority in these difficult times," the post said.
“In the past few weeks, according to the government's instructions, we've put a lot of hard work into the pub to open up again.
"Anyone who has visited us this weekend can see our new arrangement of one meter plus tables, our disposable systems, full table service and continuous cleaning."
In a statement released online, Village Home said they hope to reopen on Saturday: "Anyone who has been in the pub over the weekend does not need to be isolated unless they show symptoms or are followed directly by the trace group contacted. "
An expert warned that Britain will suffer "big" COVID 19 outbreaks if people break social distance rules.
Dr. David Nabarro, a coronavirus expert from the World Health Organization, admitted that after more than 100 days of closure, “everyone has to have fun”.
However, he warned that groups of viruses will inevitably break out if the British fail to obey social distancing while enjoying their newly discovered freedoms when pubs, restaurants and vacation destinations reopen.
The "one-meter-plus" rule was left in ruins on "Super Saturday" when cheering drinkers called the time to block and got into the nation's pubs.
Cities across the UK have fluctuated on a scale that has not been seen since Boris Johnson ordered bars to be closed to control Covid-19 on March 23.
