What to Do in London on Valentine's Day

If you want to do something ultra-romantic in London on Valentine's Day, we have a few suggestions

The London Eye
Couples can choose from the “Valentine’s Champagne and Canapé” experience, with chilled champagne and romantic-themed nibbles on board your capsule, or the “Red Rose” experience, with a red rose and special chocolates for each pair. For the ultimate escape, couples can steal a few moments alone in a "Cupid’s Capsule," which offers a completely private window to the capital. Guests will have their very own personal host who will serve them delicious chocolates and champagne. For more information, visit the London Eye.
 
Romantic River Night Cruise
The evening will begin at Westminster Pier, where couples will be welcomed aboard with a glass of sparkling wine. As the boat heads down to the Thames Barrier, they will be able to enjoy a three-course meal with wine, and on the homeward journey, guests will be entertained by a live band, with plenty of time for dancing. The River Thames offers a spectacular setting, and the illuminated monuments along the river bank provide a stunning backdrop for a romantic evening cruise. For more information, visit City Cruises.
 
Pleasure Garden Ball at the Museum of London
Make a date for this night of dancing, drinking and decadence as the Museum of London recreates Georgian London's quintessential pastime—dancing the night away in the pleasure garden—with a flirty Valentine's twist. Learn to dance with an 18th-century girl band, hear saucy poetry by Write Queer London, discover fashion dandy-style, and design and wear your own alluring masquerade mask. For more information, visit the Museum of London.
 
The Orient Express
Spend the most romantic day of the year aboard the British Pullman for a special steam-hauled lunch or dinner. The train will depart from London Victoria, and guests can admire the vintage carriages before tucking into a five-course lunch or dinner with champagne and wine, accompanied by live entertainment. To make a Valentine’s trip extra special, guests can request a coupé, a compartment set away from the main carriage, and order Champagne, caviar or a bouquet of 12 red roses to be waiting for them on board. The train manager can also help facilitate a proposal and prepare the perfect moment. For more information, visit Orient Express.
 
Covent Garden Academy of Flowers, St Martin’s Courtyard
For an inspired gift this Valentine’s Day, London's leading floral design academy, The Covent Garden Academy of Flowers, has a present far more unique than a dozen roses: a voucher for a floral design evening- or day-course. (Not to fear—ready-made bouquets are also available for the short-of-time!) For more information, visit the Covent Garden Academy of Flowers.
