London is one of the most romantic cities in the world and its has a wonderful selection of romantic treats for all couples looking for that perfect getaway. Here is a few suggestions on what you can do to make London the city of love for you and your partner.
Take a Walk
Strolling through the city on a bright, beautiful day is a very romantic experience. On foot, you can see all the hidden gems that London has to offers and find your own, secret secluded spot. You can see the sights, stop in for a drink along the River Thames and enjoy the views while conversing with your significant other. After your walk, why not treat yourselves to a pamper session at The Piccadilly London West End Hotel where you can sit back and enjoy a relaxing massage, a facial, manicure or pedicure. There is a fine choice for the ladies and a whole selection of treatments for the men too so you can enjoy a well-deserved pampering session together.
Enjoy a Picnic
You may find it an odd notion to have a picnic in a bustling city like London but there are many beautiful spots that are perfect for such a thing. The royal parks hold many stunning picnic areas where you can see The Serpentine, if you were at Hyde park or Kensington Gardens; Buckingham Palace if you were to dine at St James’s Park, or you may even get to spot some wild deer in Richmond Park. One of the best spots to visit in London is Primrose Hill, located in The Regent’s Park as it has a breathtaking panoramic view of the city. The view, by law, is unrestricted by trees or by buildings so you can take in a unique view of the city while enjoying a picnic with your loved one.
Take a Turn around the Rink
Winter is an incredibly romantic season; nestling together around a fire and drinking hot chocolate or mulled wine is one of the perks of the season. Another is ice skating in the city and there are several options to choose from. You could skate in an iconic setting and head the Natural History Museum; you could take a spin just a stone’s throw away from the London Eye or you could head to Hyde Park and skate in the world famous Winter Wonderland, surrounded by rides, food and alcohol. One of the more beautiful settings is Somerset House where the rink is surrounding by the stunning building built in the 1700’s, once you have held hands and elegantly skated around the rink, you can both snuggle up inside the skate lounge with a warm drink in hand. It is the most perfect romantic setting.
