London is a stunning city… the culture is unparalleled, and the atmosphere the entire city has is almost intoxicating. But if you’re going with your partner, this beautiful, once-in-a-lifetime trip can turn out to be a nightmare if you don’t have destinations in mind.
Instead of grabbing a handful of ‘okay’ dates and never really experiencing the city, take our advice and find the best date ideas in London – from seeing the entire city from a high vantage point to the best dinners around. Fish and chips, anyone?
The London Eye
No, it’s not a bad movie – though it does sound like one – and it’s not a giant carving that you take a lot of pictures of, just to delete when you get home. It’s actually an amazing experience, made better with your partner by your side.
If you’re afraid of heights, this might not be the thing for you. But if you can take it like a man, you will certainly be rewarded with something breath taking.
The London Eye is the highest observation point in the entire city. You’re greeted with a sweeping, panoramic view of London itself – cameras can’t describe what you’ll experience, and you’ll feel like your on top of the world.
They’ll adore the sights, and you’ll look like a hero showing them an amazing time… even if you’re only in London for a short time, this is a vital stop.
Afterwards, stop at a cheap restaurant – or ‘pub’ – for a late lunch… even if the food is just ‘decent’, being in London after seeing that will save you money, and make them feel great.
London is, without a doubt, packed with culture and charisma… even those living and working in London have something special about them that doesn’t happen anywhere else in the world. Going to see a play in London is an experience that is truly unforgettable.
I can’t recommend any theatres to you simply for the fact that each theatre is showing something different at a different time – but chances are, the main lobby of your local hotel can give you numbers to ten different local theatres, small and large, within London itself.
Make calls to see the dates and times of the shows near you, and doing a little internet research can be a lot of help on the subject matter. After the play, splurge on an evening out – find the best restaurant in the area, and sit down to a romantic evening… theatre is, after all, one of the most romantic things that you can go and do!
You’ll have a lot to talk about, so make sure the restaurant is open a long time, and don’t be afraid to linger after dinner to discuss the finer points. Afterwards, take a walk and soak in the London culture.
London is gorgeous, and it can be easy to find date ideas in London, if you look hard enough. Make sure to see the staples of the trip, and never leave your hotel without a clear idea of where you’re going – it’s easy to get lost!
