Whether you are loved-up and looking for something romantic to do, or you are single and wanting to celebrate with your friends, here is our guide to celebrating Valentine’s Day in London.
Wanting to treat your special someone to a romantic meal with an impeccable view of London on Valentine’s Day? The Aqua Shard offers stunning views from the 31st floor of The Shard; enjoy 360 degree views while dining on modern French cuisine at Galvin at Windows; or head to the OXO Tower and enjoy an intimate dinner for two with a menu of modern British classics and views of The City.
If you are looking for a romantic and intimate setting for your V-Day dining experience, book a table at Berners Tavern in Fitzrovia for a glamourous night with your someone special; or go back to the 20’s at Bob Bob Ricard and impress your date with the ‘press for champagne’ buzzer in your booth. If you are looking to go all-out, Clos Maggiore offers fairy lights, candles, a fireplace, and a forest of fake white blossoms to romance your date!
Clos Maggiore – The world’s most romantic restaurant
If you want to escape the couples at London’s top restaurants, sip on champagne on the London Eye with your loved one while enjoying views of the Thames, stroll through Primrose Hill or Greenwich Park (don’t forget your picnic basket), or enjoy a cocktail at the Sky Garden Pod Bar.
If you would rather spoil your someone special with an unconventional Valentine’s Day; enjoy the lights at the Magical Lantern Festival; listen to Keats’ love poems at Valentine’s Late Night at Keats House; enjoy a cabaret show at The Black Cat Cabaret; or munch on Champagne + Fromage while enjoying boat cruise on the Thames.
You could also take Bae to a special cocktail making masterclass and learn to mix your own love potions; dance the night away at a silent disco at the Cutty Sark; or enjoy ‘A Night at The Grand’ with a Wes Anderson-themed food and film evening – including a three course dinner and a screening of ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ with unlimited popcorn.
If Valentine’s Day isn’t your thing, and you really can’t be bothered with cards, cheesy gifts or flowers and chocolates, head down to Proud East’s Anti-Valentine’s Day Party where everyone from singles to couples can enjoy a fun night of games, pool and ping pong!
