5 Best Places in London to Visit on a Date

Looking for date ideas in London?

Guest post by Diana Ross

London is a wonderful and mysterious city which can make your dreams come true. It is worth asking your beloved girl out and going to walk along the streets of foggy Albion. London attracts visitors with its red buses and telephone booths, magnificent architecture and shady parks, crowded pubs, and everything that they saw many times in movies and read in books. So, if you are going to surprise your girlfriend and arrange at least somehow a romantic date, you can safely use the following options.

#1 | Whispering Gallery at St. Paul’s Cathedral

If you go up higher the ground level under the dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral (it’s about two hundred and fifty-nine steps), you will be able to find yourself in the Whispering Gallery. If you whisper something into a wall, your partner will hear even the quiet words quite clearly, even standing 35 meters away from you. So, if you whisper something like, “How to know if you should break up?” be ready that you might get the answer and spoil your perfect date. St. Paul’s Cathedral is an integral part of the London landscape and occupies a significant place in English history. It’s stunning and truly amazing. In addition, it was the place of the wedding-fairy tale of Prince Charles and Diana in 1981.

#2 | Kew Gardens

Kew Gardens are recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site; they are located in the London suburb of Richmond. It is a historically beautiful park of 1.5 km long. You and your beloved partner will be undoubtedly inspired by the beautiful Kew Palace, the Chinese garden, as well as a walk at bird’s-eye view (height of 18 meters), enjoying the view of the huge variety of flowers and plants. The Orangery Restaurant is the best of the four places that are located in the royal botanical gardens of Kew, but it is better to take a blanket with you and have a picnic on the grass to make your date more romantic.

#3 | The Millennium Wheel, the London Eye

If you want to experience unusual emotions with your beloved partner and find yourself in the seventh heaven, being at the top of the world, then it’s time to go to the Millennium Wheel. London just spreads out before you. Located on the banks of the River Thames, on the south side, the London Eye will provide you with an amazing 360-degree view of London. And if you want to achieve the maximum romance, then you should book a private Cupid’s Capsule and enjoy a 30-minute trip over a bottle of champagne with truffles! Your girlfriend will be delighted.

#4 | Boat Ride in Hyde Park

What could be more romantic than sailing on a quiet lake? Change the hustle and bustle of the city to peace and solitude of the largest park in London. Lake Serpentine covers 40 hectares of Hyde Park right in the city center. There are many other attractions in the park, and when you are finished with rowing, you should definitely visit one of the two restaurants near the lake.

#5 | Beach Blanket Babylon Restaurant

It can be compared with an elegant treasure, hidden among the walls of an old warehouse. This place with its subdued light, elegant décor, and cozy rooms are simply created for special evenings with beloved ones. The restaurant takes three floors of a former warehouse and combines a bar, restaurant, lounge area, and a large gallery space. Here, you will be able to plunge into an unexpectedly harmonious combination of boho, art deco, and French chateau styles. At BBB, guests can enjoy not only lunch or dinner but also hold a meeting over a cocktail or a glass of wine, the choice of which is really huge here. So, if you decide to arrange an unforgettable date for your girlfriend, you can choose one or all the options at once, and your soulmate will have no chance to stay indifferent.
