If you’re looking for a spectacular way to celebrate your anniversary, what better way to mark the beginning of your love story than with a romantic city break? London offers lovers the chance to reconnect, make memories and cherish one another in the city that has it all. Whether you have a fun-filled, action packed itinerary planned, or just want to take things slow and steady, you can do as much or as little as you like in the capital.
No doubt you’ll want to book an exquisite hotel for the night, so that your significant other will feel completely and utterly spoilt. There are plenty of romantic hotels in Paddington to pick from, and with their central location, they make an ideal base from which to explore the rest of the city. The Park Grand Paddington Court hotel London boasts sumptuous rooms with elegant décor and a beautiful restaurant too- in fact, it truly is a great backdrop against which to enjoy an unforgettable trip.
Of course, no romantic break would be complete without a beautiful, romantic dinner, and London has an abundance of intimate restaurants that offer just that. With each one offering delectable dishes that will excite and tantalise your tastebuds, you’ll be completely spoilt for choice. You could even head over to little Italy London for beautifully cooked, authentic Italian dishes and exceptional wines to taste and enjoy. Its quaint setting is ideal for a special date night or anniversary, and the Italian atmosphere is tangible and warm, giving the feel-good factor to all who visit.
If you’re lucky enough to be in the city when the sun is shining down, consider packing a picnic of your favourite foods and heading to Hyde Park. Beautiful anytime of the day, the park offers a stunning lake that’s home to swans and cygnets, manicured gardens sure to delight and a wonderful coffee shop! You could easily while away a few hours walking through the park hand in hand, whilst you reminisce of memories gone by and the ones you’ve still yet to make.
Even getting around the city can be romantic- you could opt to use the water taxi boats instead of road taxis, or even utilise the city’s cable cars to get to the O2. Imagine a journey through the air in your own pod listening to music and enjoying the spectacular birds eye views of the city. And, if that sounds right up your street, then a trip on the London eye would provide you with even more widespread views of the city.
Whichever way you choose to spend your time in London, be sure to also allow yourselves time to enjoy your hotel too- you’ve paid for it after all! Perhaps your idea of a wonderful weekend away is simply an early night and a long lie in- both things go hand in hand with hotel stays. So, if the weather is particularly bad, or you’re just suitably exhausted, you could always stay in your hotel room under the covers and watch movies together, read books, or simply chat the day away sharing your hopes and dreams for the future.
