Halloween – Are you brave enough to try out London’s scariest attractions?
Valentine’s Day brings out the very best in a truly enchanting city, home to an unparalleled selection of restaurants, cruises, and attractions, perfect if you’re looking to really impress your partner …but it’s all so expensive!
London’s ancient streets are steeped in romance all year round (and I’m not just talking about Soho) so you really are spoiled for choice. But how can you experience the best of the city without breaking the bank?
Many of the city’s Valentine’s Day experiences are available throughout the week, so why not avoid the rush (and occasionally inflated prices) and celebrate over the weekend? For the traditionalists this isn’t always ideal, while some of you may well be looking to splash the cash in order to gain a few brownie points. For this reason, I’ve not only included my favourite deals below, but also a few of the capital’s hidden highlights...
Get the most out of the capital by breaking free from the usual routine and trying something new. Discount London aren’t only thinking outside the chocolate box this Valentine’s Day, but are also keen to share a variety of deals and packages designed to save you money, while making the whole process as painless as possible.
Everyone has their favourite restaurant, but for that extra special something, London has an array of breath-taking destinations to explore, all with a real WOW factor. For a touch of style and sophistication, afternoon tea at the Strand Palace hotel creates a refined atmosphere in which to celebrate the big day, while offering something a little different to the usual slap-up meal.
Picturesque cityscapes available from the summit of the Shard create an enchanting environment for couples either before or after a tantalising afternoon tea at the nearby Browns restaurant. What’s more, by booking it as part of a package you’ll be saving a bundle – just don’t tell the other half!
Special Valentine’s packages are also available with the London Eye, which combines spectacular panoramas with the magic of the iconic, high-tech big wheel. Push the boat out with this fantastic deal that also includes a luxury dinner cruise.
The River Thames provides perhaps the most impressive setting for a romantic meal, showcasing the city from a unique vantage point. Setting sail through the heart of London helps create the perfect atmosphere, thanks in part to stunning views of the many landmarks that line the banks of the river.
Shock horror! We don’t all like the same things… but the Thames provides such a great selection of themes and cuisines that it’s hard not to find something that will please even the fussiest of partners. Lunches, discos, dinners and even afternoon teas can be enjoyed in a truly special setting.
Don’t forget, romantic city experiences can be so much more than just a way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, they can also make a fantastic, thoughtful gift. All the ideas above are available as gift vouchers, so you can love London for less all year round.
