Valentine’s Day is here, so it is about time that you think about how you want to treat that special someone in your life.
London is full of opportunities for love, whether it is a moonlit walk along the river or a romantic dinner by candlelight, the city is full of places that will leave you and your other half starry-eyed and weak at the knees.
If you want to pull out all the stops for your loved one, this will be just the ticket. Hire out your own pod on the iconic London Eye and enjoy the unrivalled 360° view of the city skyline, whilst having your champagne flute topped up by your own personal host. If champagne and a personal host is not enough to woo that certain someone, some luxurious chocolate truffles will be the icing on the cake and will truly make for an unforgettable experience.
You know what they say about oysters don’t you? Diners at this fancy fish joint in Covent Garden will experience some of the finest fruit de mer in the city. The classic dark wood décor will perfectly set the ambience for an intimate evening, LondonTown has gushed: ‘J Sheeky is by far the most down-to-earth and welcoming – perfect for those who favour classy cooking over crass celeb-spotting.’ If you have booked a theatre visit, this restaurant is perfectly appointed for a romantic pre-theatre bite.
Picture this: a mesmerising view of St. Pauls Cathedral at sunset with a sumptuous cocktail in hand – sounds like the life doesn’t it? Well, at Madison Rooftop Terrace at the top of One New Exchange, this scenario could become a reality. Nothing says romance like an exquisite view with some fois gras and a drink by candlelight.
This tasteful and cosy restaurant just screams amorousness, and rightly so as it has been elected as one of the most romantic restaurants in the world. Adorned with fairy lights, a log fire and sweet blossom, immerse yourself in the magical ambience that this restaurant has to offer and select a glass or two from the globe’s most impressive wine list. Guests have done nothing but coo about the place, saying: ‘Magical, sublime, both in the quality of food and service.’ If you are looking to pull out all the stops for your loved one, then look no further.
You are spoilt for choice with scenic places to roam in the capital; from the majesty of London’s Royal Parks to the charm of the South Bank, the options are endless. Romance does not have to cost an arm and a leg, why not pack some strawberries and chocolate and admire the city skyline from Primrose Hill, explore the enchanted plant life of Kew Gardens or stroll beneath the canopy of trees in Hampstead Heath. Make the most of the beautiful nature that lives within London and spend some quality time with your loved one.
