L Stands for London (And for Love)
What’s better than being in love? Being in love in London, of course. Here are some ideas of romantic things you and your significant other can do in London.
1. Is Your Love Story Written in the Stars?
Journey through space and time with the one you love at The Royal Observatory Greenwich, home of London’s Planetarium. Here you can stand on the Meridian Line at the center of the world with one foot in the east and one in the west before exploring the vast skies at one of the planetarium shows. The wonders of the universe may spin your romantic life into orbit.
2. Whisper Sweet Nothings at St Paul’s
There’s something truly special about spending time at St Paul’s Cathedral’s whispering Gallery where you encounter fun and fascinating acoustic quirks, the perfect spot to whisper, or loudly proclaim your love for your darling. The iconic cathedral also offers guided tours and breathtaking panoramic views of London from the Golden Gallery.
3. Summon Your Champagne at Bob Bob Ricard
This lavish restaurant offers intimate booths, lush décor and delicious British and Russian dishes. What makes it extra special is that each booth has a button you can press to request another bottle of champers. Nothing is quite as romantic as a bit (or a lot!) of bubbly shared over a scrumptious meal.
4. See a Romantic Film at the Sunday Film Club
The Soho Hotel offers plush cow-print or romantic red recliners at their luxe cinema where you can also enjoy a three-course meal and drinks or a fancy afternoon tea at their restaurant. To make it an indulgent day out, there is the decadent option to add some Soholistic spa treatments. A couple’s massage is a great way to end the day in a relaxing way.
5. Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder
Book a Cupid Capsule experience at the London Eye. This includes a private capsule and options to add a bottle of champagne or two, canapes and luxurious chocolate truffles served by a personal host. The view is spectacular, you will feel like you’re on top of the world.
PS: This could be a GREAT place to propose…
6. Take Your Fair Lady (or Gent) to the May Fair
An overnight or weekend stay at the May Fair Hotel makes for an unforgettable experience. Enjoy the five-star luxury of sumptuous rooms, sip cocktails at the legendary May Fair Terrace and have a romantic candlelit dinner at the May Fair Kitchen. Spend the following day enjoying a couple’s spa package for the ultimate indulgence.
7. Picnic in the Park
Pick a few delicious things up from one of London’s many delicatessens and grab a blanket for a romantic picnic in Richmond Park, one of London’s largest parks. Taking a long walk, hand in hand while enjoying the fresh air and lush greenery really sets a romantic tone. And, depending on the time of year, Richmond Park is a known spot for encounters with freely roaming deer.
