Every summer, beach bars pop up along the Thames, on London rooftops, at hotel airports, tucked away down London's alleys and squares. The Roundhouse used to have a beach bar every summer for years. The Southbank still does one every year. If you're back from holiday and looking for a beach not near but in central London, you'll be spoiled for choice.
