The first nudist terrace will open in London this week in a bid to encourage visitors to take off their clothes as they take in the sights.

The 60ft high terrace, in Parliament Square, offers spectacular views of some of the city's main attractions, including Big Ben, the London Eye and Westminster Abbey.

Visitors can make sure to sun themselves during the city's upcoming heatwave next week, while enjoying a refreshing drink at the open air bar. Watch video below;

It seems the terrace is part of an emerging nudist craze that is is sweeping the capital - opening just a few weeks after London's first naked restaurant.

More adventurous visitors will also be able to enjoy a work out in the nude, with a round of swing-ball or a bounce on the trampoline.
