As we get nearer to Valentine’s Day, you may decide to plan a romantic getaway in London. This special guide highlights some true loved-up hotspots to help you get firmly into your loved one’s good books!
Brick Lane by Night
This central borough of East London transforms into the heady hubbub of Bangladesh for escapee couples who may be yearning for ethnic tastes.
By day, the streets are filled with traders of exotic fabrics, antiques, tailored clothing and artwork. By night, the roads light up with fluorescent signs advertising the various curry houses and vibrant bars.
The London Eye
Cosy up to your beau on the London Eye for a breathtaking view of the Thames snaking through the capital city’s top landmarks. The Eye now ranks alongside the Eiffel Tower for top proposal sites, due to the private pod packages – including champagne, canapés and truffles.
The 135 metre high pods take half an hour to complete the round, providing plenty of time for some aerial amorousness!

This waterside London town arouses the senses of all those who like multicultural trinkets and treats, loud music and fusion food.
Go there with your lover to purchase token gifts from the market stalls, try on unique urban outfits, sample international street-eats, or simply sit by the lock and people-watch the local subcultures.
Dans Le Noir
A pitch black restaurant sets the scene for this romantic venue.
Patrons are offered a choice of meat, fish or vegetarian meals, yet cannot see the food, staff, or even their dining partner. The fact you have to feel around for your partner to ‘see’ where they are or touch their face to feed them a sample from your plate, makes it a unique and erotic experience.
Regent’s Park at Sunset
Romantic Regent’s Park has all the ingredients for an intimate day out – beautifully-tended flora and gardens, a boating lake, lush green lawns, plus hill-top hiding places for the unbeatable view of a London sunset.
Take your lover to London Zoo for a nostalgic date, or get refreshed in one of the garden cafes to make it a full-day experience.
