Some moments in life are priceless and if you are a die-hard romantic who lives for these pleasurable moments, then London is a beautiful place to visit to make these moments happen. One thing for certain is London sunsets are truly unique and finding the right spot to watch the sun go down can leave a picture engraved in your memory forever.
If you are planning to stay in London and wish to pursue the opportunity to watch the sunset, then take note and plan ahead. Take advantage of London hotel advance purchase offers and stay at the West End London Piccadilly Hotel to ensure you are close to the action. You could even treat you and your loved one to a relaxing massage west end Piccadilly Spa treatment package before taking a gentle stroll to unwind and take in the view. What a perfect way to let your worries float away while seeing the sights.
Here are five places that are highly recommended for seeing the perfect sunset:
- Primrose Hill at Regents Park
At the top of Primrose Hill, you can view the whole of Central London and with the nothing but the sky above you and the city below you, it can feel as if you have reached the top of the world. Facing North, you will receive an unrivalled view of Belsize Park and Hampstead, or you can explore the seven English heritage blue plaques that commemorate famous residents. The sunset here is best enjoyed with loved ones as it is a magical experience.
- The Millennium Bridge
The view of the sunset from the Millennium Bridge is breath-taking. The absence of noise from passing traffic makes for a peaceful experience as the sun sinks over the River Thames and the skyscraper lights slowly flicker to life.
- The London Eye
A ride in a capsule on the London Eye lasts for 30 minutes and provides a fantastic opportunity to view a London sunset while being suspended in mid-air. The sunset is even more spectacular from the London Eye if you can time being at the top of the wheel as the sun dips below the horizon.
- The Shard
The View from the Shard on its own is worth a visit to the iconic building but combined with the chance to see London baked in the warm orange of a sunset is an opportunity not to be missed. Viewing the sunset from the tallest building in the city is a romantic experience. On a clear night following the sunset, the moon and the stars look close enough to touch, perfect when shared with a bottle of bubbly for two in a moment of luxury.
- Richmond Park
Richmond Park is the largest of London’s Royal Parks and is in South-West London. Watching the sunset from Richmond Park on a picnic blanket with a glass of wine is magical. Spending the evening relaxing with forest animals nearby and in surroundings that have been protected for centuries is an experience to remember.
