How about watching a movie on a big outdoor cinema screen at Hampton Court? The screen will be situated on the East Front Lawn with Henry VIII's Tudor palace as the floodlit backdrop.

Premium tickets include a complimentary drink at the bar and a better seating position. Bear in mind that screenings usually go ahead in bad weather, so be prepared for a bit of drizzle and cold. (This is London, after all, and summer is no guarantee of warm weather!)
