Flowers, chocolates and candlelit dinners are all very well, but for more creative people there are better ways to spend Valentine’s Day. If you’re looking for something fun to do, London’s hotels have you covered.
A Night at the Grand at Town Hall Hotel
Film fans will love this Wes Anderson-themed evening, which celebrates his works with screenings and food and drinks.
The event begins with cocktails, followed by a three-course meal, then a viewing of The Grand Budapest Hotel. Unlimited popcorn will be flowing throughout the screening. Book now if you don’t want to miss out.
Valentine’s Day Afternoon Tea at The Dorchester
Having a romantic afternoon tea might not be the wackiest way to celebrate, but it’s a lovely treat if you wouldn’t ordinarily indulge.
The Dorchester is always a top choice for a smart afternoon tea, giving you a great reason to get dressed up. Their Valentine’s menu this year features a selection of themed French pastries and champagne.
Valentine’s Meal at Haymarket Hotel
If you want a more substantial meal that’s a bit more savoury than sweet, the menu at the Brumus Bar and Restaurant could be for you.
The three-course meal includes choices such as salmon and mascarpone ravioli, pan roasted sea trout, and vanilla panna cotta with passionfruit and coconut macaroons. Finish off with tea, coffee, and petit fours.
Patisserie Pop-up at Corinthia London
On the other hand, maybe you want to eat sweets and only sweets. Sometimes you need to experience something while you have the chance. This Valentine’s Day, a patisserie will be popping up at Corinthia London, and you’ll have to be quick if you want to get a look-in.
Dulce by Helen Vass will be held in the hotel’s The Northall private dining room and will serve a five-course menu of pure desserts. Each dessert will be paired with a wine and there will also be a pre-dessert course, a sharing platter for couples, and a signature heart to take away.
You’ll need to book to reserve a place.
Whether you’re alone or loved up on Valentine’s Day, why not get out and have some fun? There’s plenty to do in London, both in and out of hotels.
