Summer means hot weather, longer days, beer gardens, holidays and some yummy sweet treats. 

This includes ice cream which although is not set exclusively for the hotter months, does somehow taste better with the beaming sun and sweaty conditions. 

Across Greenwich, there are plenty of places to pick up ice cream, whether at a corner shop, a local cafe or stopping and having a treat at an ice cream parlour. 

With so many options to choose from, we thought we'd make a list of the top five ice cream shops in Greenwich.
