This is interesting it’s the reopening of Selfridges roof gardens for the first time since World War Two. The gardens were closed in 1940 after they were damaged by a bomb. Since then they have remained closed after owner H. George Selfridge vowed never to reopen them. They are now open complete with a green lake and rowing boats and a cocktail bar. The roof has been reinforced with steel to hold the lake and Westminster Council has issued a special boating licence for it.
