If you’re looking for some romantic ideas, you’re in luck, because we’ve curated a list of idyllic activities for you and your special someone to enjoy in our amorous town. Read on, start planning and let the romance blossom!
Deer spotting at Richmond Park
Beauty is found in all seasons when thinking of Richmond Park in West London. Other than the woodland and the flowers, deer spotting is a great way to get you and your partner outdoors in the fresh air. To spruce up your romantic wildlife walk at the park, why not count how many Red Deer or Fallow Deer you can see during your walk?
Location: Richmond Park
Visiting the aquarium at night
Visiting an aquarium during the day with your partner can be romantic but imagine going to the aquarium after hours, in an adults-only VIP event with prosecco – we think it makes everything twice as romantic. Doing something different together can add so much excitement to the relationship – seeing things from a different perspective.
Location: SEA LIFE Centre London Aquarium, Riverside Building, County Hall, Westminster Bridge Rd, Lambeth, London SE1 7PB
Watching a live show at the theatre
The cinema is a cosy go-to activity for couples, but it doesn’t get much better than watching a live show and seeing actors perform in the moment and not from a screen – everything is real and raw. Sing along to the classics at The Lion King, Phantom of The Opera or head to one of the smaller theatres to check out the fringe scene.
Feeling festive at London’s Christmas Markets
London is known for its variety of Christmas Markets and getting you in the festive spirit long before Christmas Day. Imagine being able to tick off all the Christmas Markets in London with your loved one – a unique bucket list idea for a couple!
Catch the Sunset at a Botanical Garden
Enjoy a breath of fresh air together in one of the world’s largest botanical gardens, Kew Gardens in London. Like the sound of catching the sunset? Imagine doing this at Kew, against the beautiful backdrop of not only London’s top botanic garden but the garden with the “largest and most diverse botanical and mycological collections in the world.”!
Location: Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, Richmond TW9 3AB
A cosy night in with an iconic London view
Prefer a cosy night in but also the chance to enjoy a beautiful view of London that you would normally only get from a romantic night out? Cheval Collection can offer you the best of both worlds! In addition to a comfy bed and stunning London views, you will also receive a luxurious breakfast hamper for two, champagne, chocolates, and best of all – private dining in your apartment at Cheval Three Quays for two with La Belle Assiette. If this isn’t the most romantic thing to do as a couple then we don’t know what is.
