You don’t have to travel abroad for a romantic getaway. You can indulge in a romantic weekend in London with a vast range of attractions at your fingertips. Don’t wait for an anniversary or Valentine’s Day. Celebrate your loved one every day, and add a little luxury with these tips and tricks.
Your romantic getaway starts with the train to London. Save the indulgence for London and reduce the cost of travel with duo tickets. Although, a bottle of bubbly on the train wouldn’t hurt!
Nothing says romance like the Shangri La. Escape the manic streets of London in a luxe suite fifty floors up. You can watch the London skyline light up without leaving your bed. A London getaway doesn’t have to mean running around the city. You can stay in bed with your loved one all day long. Make sure to check out their room service as well!
If you and your partner prefer something a little more low-key, why not rent a houseboat in Little Venice? Hideaway in your safe haven and enjoy the view of peaceful waterways and colourful houseboats. Blomfield Road and the Brownings Pools are the best spots in Little Venice. You can even grab lunch in an idyllic waterside café as well.
Take your loved one for a dinner date on the 31st floor of London’s iconic Shard. You can watch the sunset from the atrium bar and check off a bucket list attraction.
If rush-hour tubes and tedious black cabs aren’t your thing, travel in style with a river cruise. This is the best way to see the bridges at night and to watch the city pass by as you ride down the Thames. You can hop on and hop off to see the sights or travel in style while eating dinner. But if roses and dinner isn’t your idea of romance, check out the speed boat tours.
Live out your Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts dream with the colourful streets of Notting Hill. Drop by Portobello Garden Arcade for Italian food and a cosy atmosphere. Notting Hill is the best place for brunch, lunch and all things food.
Enjoy a little bit of luxury on your romantic getaway this year!
