The art of the Milkshake is one that has enchanted many foodies over the generations. From the 1950s onwards, the London Milkshake scene has continued to grow. We check out the top 10 places in London to satisfy your Milkshake cravings.

The Diner

The Diner’s Oreo Milkshake is deliciously memorable. Served in a tall glass with a refill option available, it could easily be a substitute for dinner. With an authentic 1950s American Diner theme, this is the ideal place to revel in the icy mixture, with wonderful background music and equally as delicious food.

MEATmarket is not only famous for its burgers or, even better, its cocktails, but also for the wonderful ‘Soft and Hard Shakes’ it offers. Its selection is simple but made with great products and served in generous portions. The menu includes the famous Market Bourbon shake, which is composed of Maple Syrup, Bourbon, and vanilla ice cream. The market itself does not take reservations and its reputation precedes it, so it is recommended that you arrive early.

Sblended is great for a milkshake on the go. Located in various places around the city, it offers customers a wide selection of flavours and toppings, including fruits such as mango or cherry, sweets like Jelly Beans or mini marshallows, or even cakes, like strawberry shortcake or apple pie.
