Romantic Getaways to London

With Valentine’s Day almost upon us, people in cities all over the world are celebrating their love for one another. One of the greatest cities for romantic getaways is London, where lovers have been sharing the capital’s parks, restaurants and city views for centuries.

Boat trips on the River Thames might not have the romantic connotations of a gondola ride in Venice, but cruises on the Thames are a great way to see the city and enjoy each other’s company. Take a Valentine’s cruise on the Thames on an evening and you can enjoy a night of fine dining and take in the bright lights of London as you go.

If your Valentine is a theatre lover, tickets to see a show at the West End are a must. Whether you plump for a musical, such as Billy Elliot or Chicago, or a bit of Shakespeare at The Globe theatre, you will find performances of the highest quality in London.

The artists and creative thinkers have been hard at work coming up with new ways for you to woo your special someone this February and if you head over to Kensington’s ‘Enchanted’ Palace, you will have the chance to make your very own versions of the enchanted paper roses that decorate the State Apartments in London.

Another inventive way to say something a little more serious is on offer at the Sea Life London Aquarium. For £60, you can arrange to have a diver appear amongst the depths as you watch, clutching a sign bearing your proposal of marriage to your Valentine. Should all go well, you will be presented with a glass of champagne and a professional photo of your moment.

London can certainly cater for your needs when it comes to romantic accommodation. City apartments London like The Gore in South Kensington offer some of the most lavishly extravagant rooms anywhere in the UK, perfect for creating that Valentine’s night atmosphere and enjoying an unforgettable stay.

If you are going to extend your Valentine’s getaway, London accommodation makes for a great base from which to travel around the city, seeing the sights and enjoying all the capital has to offer. In areas such as Chelsea, Mayfair, Canary Wharf and Victoria apartments of the highest standard can be found, offering bookings ranging from a few days to as long as you wish!
