Wherever you go in London, romance is never far away. From the gothic splendor of Westminster Abbey (the location of many royal weddings) to the intimacy of a capsule on the London Eye, cuddling up at the coolest bar in town or simply enjoying a twilight cruise on the river, London is definitely perfect for lovers!
By day or night, the capsules on the London Eye have become an iconic spot for lovers enjoying the sky-high views – and often a proposal of marriage too! Champagne and chocolates can be arranged in advance within a Cupid’s Capsule! It certainly creates an intensely memorable occasion.
How about some red roses for your love? Columbia Road Flower Market in the East End always has a good selection (along with a wide range of other flowers), and in summer, you can enjoy a wonderfully fragrant romantic walk in Queen Mary’s Rose Garden within Regents Park. Not far away in a quiet wooded glade is the outdoor theatre where Shakespeare’s Midsummer Nights Dream romantic comedy is often performed.

Watch a romantic movie while sharing a soft cashmere blanket in a shared seat at the Electric Cinema in West London’s Portobello. The iconic Ice Bar in central London offers a very different reason for cuddling up – all the seats, tables and even glasses are made from pure ice! With temperatures kept permanently at minus five degrees, this is definitely a place for getting close to your loved one.
You can book any of the hotels near Kensington London and take a stroll along the River Thames and enjoy the quiet whisper of the river as it passes by. Watch the reflections on the water glinting and twinkling in the darkness. Enjoy the entertainment provided by street entertainers and buskers on the South Bank or head up to the Oxo Tower restaurant for a meal with a spectacular view.
Relax at Park Grand Hotel Kensington and then watch the sights of London pass by while enjoying a travelling afternoon tea on a B Bakery’s classic London Routemaster Bus.
Alternatively, why not try a moonlit cruise down the river on one of the many cruise boats – or make up your own journey with the hop on hop off riverboat service allowing you to spend time at places like the Tower of London or Greenwich. Head up to the Observatory and try stepping across time at the Greenwich meridian.
