Valentine’s Day is approaching fast, and if you’re still racking your brains for ideas- why not treat your partner to a mini break? It’s more special than a simple material gift as you get the experience, you get to build memories and plus you can enjoy together. And where could be more romantic than London- there’s just something so strangely magical and romantic about a busy bustling city. Here are some things to consider when you’re planning your break.
For a romantic break, getting your accommodation right is an important step. If you wanted to go all out you could look for somewhere which offers spectacular views, a hot tub, luxury rooms or whatever else you want from your stay. As well as the hotel itself, the location is an important one to consider. If you don’t want to stay in the ultra busy and expensive main city centre how about staying slightly further out? If you check out hotels in West London you have Shepherd’s Bush and Kensington both nearby both of which are full of fun things to do. Plus they’re nice too, perfect for taking your sweetheart to on Valentine’s day.
Romantic Things To Do
When you’re going to London for a romantic break, the usual touristy attractions probably won’t seem quite right. Instead, think of alternative things to do. How about hiring a boat, and viewing the most amazing sights of the London skyline? A trip up the London Eye is another option, they offer champagne experiences which would be ideal for Valentine’s day. You could see a show at London’s famous West End, or even take a ride in a hot air balloon. Think of activities that are peaceful, offer great views and give you the chance to talk and enjoy each others company while taking in the sights.
Eating and Drinking
A romantic meal is a must for Valentine’s day, and while you’re in London you will want to take advantage of the luxurious, incredible restaurants on offer– some of which are considered the best in the world. There are all kinds of cuisines on offer so something for every taste, and you could of course go for something less expensive if your budget won’t stretch. It’s worth having a look online before your trip, be sure to book a table in advance too. These kinds of places will be in high demand on Valentine’s Day, especially in a busy place like London. So the earlier you make your reservation, the better. During the day, there are lots of casual, cosy cafes that you could enjoy some brunch or lunch at. Perhaps a waterside cafe with a gorgeous view? You can even book lunch on a barge if you want to get even closer to the water.
If you’ve been browsing the shops and looking online and no gift seems to be quite right, a getaway instead could be a perfect choice. You get to explore somewhere new, eat delicious food and enjoy some fun attractions. What could be better?!
