Love is in the air! Valentines Day is nearly here.
Are you planning a romantic London getaway for your loved one? Well you’ve come to the right place.
Our Ivy Lettings team have put together our best ideas for fun-filled and romantic activities to do in the capital to sweep your loved one off their feet.
And of course, we've also complied a list of our top vacation rentals for couples- the perfect bases from which to spend your time together in London.
Explore the museums of South Kensington
Spend a day or two strolling through on of the magnificent museums in South Kensington. The Natural History Museum, V&A Museum, Science Museum are must-do’s! We have several accommodation options nearby too, if you’re hoping to be within walking distance to them.
Dine in Style
Treat yourselves to a romantic dinner for two at one of London’s top dining hotspots! A few options to consider are Duck & Waffle, Sushi Samba, Aqua Shard (that view!), Sky Garden, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, or OXO Tower Restaurant, but there are plenty more (it is London after all!) Be sure to book in advance wherever you choose.
Stroll in the Parks
Enjoy the serenity of the Kyoto Gardens in Holland park, walk among the squirrels through the flower walk in Kensington Gardens, visit the resident deer in Richmond Park, enjoy a picnic in Hyde Park followed by a pedalo ride on the Serptentine, or stroll through St James Park after visiting the Queen at Buckingham Palace.
See a West End show
Treat your special someone to dinner and theatre show on the West End. Aladdin, Dreamgirls, The Book of Mormon, and Kinky-Boots are just some of the top shows out this year. You can get great deals on several discount sites such as Discount Theatre.
Have afternoon tea
Warm up by enjoying a delightful cup of tea at the one and only, Harrods department store in Knightsbridge (followed by shopping, of course), or if you’re feeling extra fancy, perhaps you could visit the The Ritz for a little more of a luxurious experience.
Go for a spin on the London Eye
Toast to your special weekend away together with a glass of champagne on the London Eye in your own private capsule. Be prepared for some magnificent views across London from 135m up!
Cook a meal together
If you’d rather enjoy a quiet night in, why not cook a lovely meal together from the privacy of your London vacation home? Perhaps you could pick up a cookbook in one of London’s many fabulous bookshops to give you some ideas.
However you choose to spend your day, we sure our wonderful city will deliver magical day not to be forgotten.
