Most Romantic Places In London

If you are looking for a romantic getaway or a great idea for a date, you should take a closer look at London. It may be one of the world’s busiest and most bustling cities, but there are plenty of opportunities for romance. With parks, rivers, sky high restaurants and views, London does have it all. Check out this list of the most romantic things to do in London:

The OXO Tower Restaurant - This restaurant is the ultimate date venue, boasting revolving views of the city. It is world-renowned for its cocktails and waiting staff who are discreet and effective in making a couple feel very special. Thankfully, you can just come for the drinks here, but the cost of the meal is worth it for the excellent service and views.

Greenwich Park - Home to the Royal Observatory where you can literally straddle the two halves of the hemisphere at the Meridian Line. The area of Greenwich is lovely just to stroll, but silly games at the Observatory can’t be beat for romantic fun. Avoid the middle of the day during term time, so you aren’t interrupted by coach loads of schoolkids.

Cruise the Thames - Depending on your style, you can take a slow dinner cruise along the river, or go for a high-speed powerboat adventure like James Bond. Neither will do her hair any good, but both are certain to offer a wow factor to the date.

Kew Gardens - The botanical displays and beautiful flowers at Kew cannot be beaten for a romantic setting. If you cannot stretch the date budget to Kew, try the Columbia Road Flower Market in the East End on a Sunday. The scents and bustle combined with the East End culture fill your senses and make for a great stroll with your loved one.

West End - Pick a West End show you know you’ll both love and cosy up together for a great night in theater land. Find a London secret hotel to finish off your perfect evening. If food is the way to your love’s heart, pick one of the hundreds of theater dinners available in the area that offer either early or very late sittings for show lovers.

Ice Skating at Somerset House - Somerset House is a lovely little place that is intimate and romantic all year round. There are films shown here in the summer and an ice skating rink in the winter months. Wrap up warm and hold on tight as you skate around the rink together.

Opera - The English National Opera at the London Coliseum is a fabulous to take your date for a classical treat. While not cheap, the opportunity to dress up and take on some of the world’s greatest music ever written cannot be missed.

Hampstead Heath - Pack a picnic and a blanket, and enjoy climbing up to one of London’s high points. The air is strangely fresh at the top, and the sounds of London just melt away. It may not be the most private place to spend some time with your other half, but in London, you can’t beat a bit of green space.
