London’s most romantic places to visit
We may have launched in the city of love, but we’re still thinking of our lovely London. Plan the perfect romantic day with our list of the top ten most romantic places to visit in London.
1. The Royal Observatory
Stand on the Meridian Line, take in the breathtaking view of London, or marvel at the stars by visiting the planetarium. The Royal Observatory at Greenwich Park is a place of calm and beauty.
2. Columbia Road Flower Market
Stroll through the streets of east London as the sweet smell of flowers envelops your senses. Ease into the hustle and bustle of this stunning market as you wind down Columbia Road. Stop in some of the charming little shops lining the sides of the road, from trendy cafés to funky galleries and bookstores.
3. Serpentine Lido
Make your way through Hyde Park until you reach the magical little lake at its centre. Sit back at the lido bar and cafe as you take in the greenery and the happy travellers enjoying some much-deserved rest. Head over to the Serpentine Gallery to enjoy a deep dive into contemporary art in all its magic and mystique.
4. Venn Street
This little street is a hidden gem just a skip away from the gorgeous Clapham Common. Enjoy the wonderful little farmers market on Sunday or nibble on tapas at Barsito as you unwind and enjoy the full beauty of residential south London.
5. Hever Castle
If you’re in the mood for a little adventure, this one’s for you. You can reach the castle by train and then a brief cab ride, or rent a car for the day. The medieval castle is surrounded by stunning gardens. Take in some history by visiting the castle, breath in the fresh countryside air and cosy up for afternoon tea. Quintessentially British and so so romantic.
6. Neal’s Yard
Right in the centre of busy Seven Dials in Covent Garden, this secret corner of London is a beauty to behold. The colourful square is hidden in plain sight and holds some wonderful little stores and restaurants that are guaranteed to delight.
7. Little Venice
A walk down the canal is always a romantic occasion. Head to Little Venice to take in the tranquil area and the bohemian lifestyle of those living on the boats. Pop into The Waterway pub for views of the canal over a glass of bubble and some casual bistro fare.
8. Motcomb Street
This gem of a street is in a beautiful part of London. Sit at one of the many little cafés along the pavement for a cappuccino and some people-watching. Window shop with your loved ones or get some styling advice from our wonderful in-house stylist, Boo Attwood.
9. King Henry’s Mound – Richmond Park
Richmond Park is perfect for escaping London’s hustle and bustle. With herds of deer roaming the grounds, you will feel transported to a National Park. King Henry’s Mound is a little-known location, even to regulars. Once on the mound, you will have an unobstructed view of St. Paul’s cathedral. A line of sight to behold!
10. The South Bank
How could the South Bank not make this list? This vibrant river-side walk is the romantic heart of London’s art, culture and food scene. Pop into the Tate for some art and breathtaking views of the river. At night, sneak in a cocktail at the Rumpus Room to enjoy skyline while sipping fine spirits.
