5 THINGS TO DO ON VALENTINE'S DAY IN LONDON
Valentine's Day is definitely going to be different this year due to lockdown restrictions. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t do something special with your partner to celebrate. We’ve put together a list of romantic things to do in London so the two of you can make the most of the day.
Explore the City
When you live in London you rarely explore the touristy spots. The city is your home, not a holiday destination. However, Valentine’s Day could be the perfect time for you and your partner to discover the city with new eyes. You can be a tourist and explore places you never usually visit. There are London Eye offers for the ultimate sightseeing experience.
Perhaps you’d rather get out into nature for the day. The two of you could bundle up warm, get a hot drink, and have a romantic stroll through one of London’s many parks. There’s plenty of places to choose from: the history of Morden Hall or the wild nature in Hampstead Heath. Enjoy the fresh air, alongside some much-needed peace and quiet.
It’s likely that restaurants won’t be open on Valentine’s Day, but this shouldn’t hinder your celebrations. Get some flowers, light some candles, and enjoy an intimate meal at home together. London is home to so many amazing restaurants which offer take-out so neither of you has to worry about the cooking.
Why not make the most of this Valentine’s Day being so different and do something you’d never normally do? The two of you could attend a mixology class from the comfort of your own home. There are several sessions you can pick from, with some of the best London bartenders in the business over Zoom. It’s a fun activity, and you’ll have some delicious drinks by the end of it.
You could surprise your partner with a gift voucher for an experience at one of London’s finest spas. However, in the meantime, why not create a spa night at home? It may not be quite as luxurious as the real thing, but the time spent together is still quality. Get some pamper products, pop open the Prosecco, and relax.
Valentine’s Day celebrations will certainly be different this year, but you and your partner can still enjoy them together. There’ll be plenty of time to go out and make the most of the city when it’s safe to do so. What would be your perfect London date?
