2. Try Fortnum & Masons Hamperling

Be it frolicking with friends or diving into a first date, you can’t beat London’s Serpentine for a fab afternoon of summer fun.

Until 28 October, afternoon tea for two is £25.

3. Watch... Disney's The Jungle Book

‘Look for the…’ Yes that’s right, Disney’s The Jungle Book has been given the high-def treatment and the Diamond Edition is now available to own on Blu-Ray and Disney DVD.

We’re building up quite the animated collection…
