9 ice cream parlours in London that you need to visit this summer

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

London is packed full of incredible restaurants, but nothing beats cooling off with some ice cream during the warm summer months. Here's the scoop on nine amazing ice cream and gelato stops all around London.

1. Ruby Violet

Based in North London, this speciality ice cream parlour makes homemade ice cream with the freshest of ingredients. From ice cream to puddings and sorbets, Ruby Violet prides itself on using natural and rich flavours.

2. Chin Chin

When it comes to conjuring up imaginative ideas that are both inventive and tasty, Chin Chin does just that. As a customer, you can actually get a glimpse of how the ice cream is made before you get to taste it. The saying "you eat with your eyes first" is definitely true and these frozen treats certainly look scrumptious.

3. Amorino

An Italian gelato company founded by two childhood friends Cristiano Sereni and Paolo Benassi, Amorino prides itself on incorporating authentic Italian flavours into its manufacture process. From the maturation process of gelato to the high-quality grade of ingredients—every aspect is carefully carried out. All of the ingredients used are natural, and each flavour has a rich and creamy texture that is bursting with flavour.

4. Ice and Slice

Ice and Slice is an independent deli and coffee shop that will knock your socks off. Their beautiful cafes have numerous five-star ratings and looking at their menu it's clear to see why. With authentic melt-in-the-mouth gelato flavours and traditional Italian pizza's, Ice and Slice is a slice of heaven for those who take delight in quality, traditional food.

5. Milk Train Cafe

Milk Train Cafe is exceptionally creative with their ice-creams. The combination of candy floss and ice cream is genius if you ask me—a perfect match for your taste buds and your Instagram.

6. Olivogelo

The only relief from this heat ?

A post shared by HERMIONE OLIVIA (@hermioneolivia) on

Olivogelo echoes the authentic gelaterias that make gelato from scratch in-house. They also host a variety of frozen yoghurts, ice cream cakes, sorbets and brioche gelato buns with any topping of your choice.

7. Gelupo

There's nothing better than visiting an ice cream parlour with unique flavour combinations. From peanut butter and raspberry, pine nuts and fennel, to dark chocolate and Earl Grey, Gelupo is a great place to get a taste of some intense and vibrant flavour profiles. Chef Jacob Kenedy and Victor Hugo set up Gelupo in 2010 and have earned some five-star ratings from the likes of Harper's Bazaar, The Guardian, The Sunday Times Style and Vogue.

8. Udderlicious

Chocolate and Rasperberry Cheesecake ice cream at @udderliciousldn ❤️

A post shared by Food Stories London?? (@foodstories_london) on

Udderlicoius create their ice cream right in their stores and they dedicate a section of their wall decor with a "flavour of the month" list where customers get to vote for their most-loved recommendations. Their most loved ice cream combination is cookies and cream with sea salt.

9. Four Winters

Looking for an unusual ice cream experience? Four Winters is proving to be the ice cream parlour of the century where their ice cream production marvels the eyes of many. Customers get the chance to witness the manufacturing process first hand—they use liquid nitrogen to create the frozen treats. While you might be giving the prices a quick frown, the taste will trump your initial apprehension. It's thumbs up all the way for this futuristic ice cream parlour.
