It's officially summertime, which means we're getting ready to get our tan on while lying about in the sun and doing the absolute bare minimum. While we'd ideally be doing this by Lake Como or in Santorini, some of us will have to make do with our back garden - and a great sun lounger.

At first glance, sun loungers might seem like a futile purchase for UK residents, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Yes, the sun might not come out every day, but, during those few months of blissful sunshine, there's no better way to unwind than by laying on your sun lounger - wine in hand - while reading your favourite book.
