10 Things To Do In London For An Instagram Worthy Valentine’s Day

Whether you are a romantic couple who love the idea of spending Valentine's Day sipping champagne, listening to music and gazing into each other's eyes, or you want to skip the lovey dovey stuff and just have a fun day out with your loved one, here's something for everyone on the day of love...

Kooza by Cirque du Soleil

If you want to watch something so strange, wonderful, daring and gravity defying that you’ll spend the entire show either open-mouthed or with a huge, ridiculous grin on your face, Kooza is an absolute MUST SEE. From tightrope walking to clowns to contortionists, this show will make it a Valentine’s Day to remember!

Warner Bros Studio Tour

For Harry Potter fan in us all, a Warner Bros Studio Tour could be the perfect trip for you and your partner. From wandering through the Yule Ball set to sharing a Butterbeer to hand selecting all of your wizardly goods (AKA Valentine’s day prezzies) at the gift shop, it’s just a shame there isn’t a Madam Puddifoot’s Tea Shop to snuggle in!

Valentine’s Jazz at the Royal Albert Hall

This would be perfect for all jazz-lovers. Settle down at the Royal Albert Hall with a bottle of champagne, a sharing board and dessert carousel as Blue Harlem, one of the top swing and jump-blues bands in London, entertains you.

Queen of Hoxton’s rooftop Woodlandia Wigwambam

If you want your Valentine’s Day to be a fairy tale, look no further than this pop-up woodland-inspired bar situated on Queen of Hoxton's rooftop that offers delicious warm cocktails and a BBQ to boot if you get a little peckish. It’s all very A Midsummer Night’s Dream!

Glamorous City Yacht Stay

If you want to push the boat out this Valentine’s Day (pun intended), we suggest London’s only Yacht hotel, Sunborn. From chilling on the upper deck with a cocktail, enjoying a three course meal complete with rose petals, chocolate and champagne in the bedroom and a spa treatment for two in the morning, we would be totally on board for this sort of Valentine’s Day treat!

Chocolate and Wine Masterclass

Head to wine tasting haven Vinopolis and join in with the Lindt Excellence wine and chocolate pairing masterclass. Developed by Lindt Master Chocolatier Stefan Bruderer and a wine expert, you can learn everything you’ll ever need to about chocolate and wine (whilst eating as much as you can, of course!) Perfect for the foodie and wine lover in you!

The BB Bakery Afternoon Tea Bus Tour

This could not be cuter. Hop on board the vintage bus and enjoy the sites of the city with an afternoon tea of finger sandwiches, pastries, and cakes with, of course, all of the tea you can drink. It’s the ultimate British Valentine’s Day, and is perfect for anyone who wants play the tourist in style!

Middle Eastern treats at the Mamounia Lounge

If you like delicious Middle Eastern food then THIS is the one for you. Along with a three course meal set menu with a complimentary glass of champagne, you'll also be treated to violinists entertaining you throughout your dining experience in a truly gorgeous venue.

An evening at Prince Charles Cinema

Prince Charles cinema is known for being unconventional, from hosting singalong events, marathon screenings that take all night to showing cult classics. So naturally on Valentine’s Day, for all those movie lovers who are actively avoiding the release of Fifty Shades of Grey, we suggest Prince Charles cinema’s schedule, from Breakfast at Tiffanys to Sing-a-long Moulin Rouge to My Bloody Valentine.

Let’s Race

If you’re not the type of couple that enjoys love-themed cocktails or your boyfriend just refuses to do anything remotely quaint or romantic, here’s an activity he’ll enjoy just as much as you will! Along with a glass of champers, try out the Formula 1 simulator racing experience Let's Race, competing against the clock to see who has the fastest reactions.
