Chim Chimeny, London, UK

The rooftop terrace at Chim Chimeny, Plum Guide home in London, UK

Click to book Chim Chimeny now: from £500 per night You only have to look at the number of rooftop bars in the UK's capital to see how much Londoners love being up among the city's iconic skyline and this Chinatown apartment lets you get in on the fun. Here, guests get access to a private terrace with plenty of seating so you can kick back and relax above the hustle and bustle of Soho below. The interior of this home is equally impressive in our books. Quirky artwork and house plants add pops of colour against the stark white walls in the living space and bedrooms, while the honeycomb-tiled bathrooms are as sleek as they come, too. There's a spacious minimalist kitchen and a chic glass dining table, but given the location and the countless restaurants that in the locale, we wouldn't be surprised if these remain unused. As well as plenty of places to eat, the main row of West End theatres on Shaftesbury Avenue sits at the top of the street, while Leicester Square and its cinemas are three minutes' walk in the other direction. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Click to book Fiddler on the Roof now: from £200 per night Set across three floors, this home in Clapham Old Town is comfortable and practical, but it also has a nice surprise up its sleeve – a fabulous private rooftop terrace with views across the city. Surrounded by this vibrant area's many fine pubs, restaurants and quirky boutiques, it feels as though it's set in a village rather than a short walk away from Battersea Park. Here you'll have a sociable, open-plan living space, where you can relax on the squashy sofa, have coffee at the breakfast bar, cook in the well kitted-out kitchen and eat at the dining table. With warm wood floors and a mix of trendy tones on the walls, it also comes with window shutters and some well-curated wall art. The stylish bedrooms and bathrooms are set over the next two floors, with the real showstopper at the top of the house. And we just love the roof terrace, with its seating area and epic views – it's perfect for a summer barbecue or a sunset glass of wine. Sleeps up to 5 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Just along a cobbled street from all the restaurants, shops and street performers, it’s a three-floor oasis that even neighbours Paul Smith’s fashion boutique. Things are just as design-focused inside, with Ercol furniture and funky lighting. White-tiled bathrooms and spacious layouts contribute to a restful vibe, one which prolongs on the roof terrace. Accessed by steep steps, the sofas and AstroTurf up here are as escapist as Central London ever gets. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms
