Are you planning a romantic city break for 2020? City breaks are a great way for couples to reconnect, by taking a break from everyday life and routines to explore a new place and enjoy each other’s company. Although many people opt for destinations overseas, we recommend that you look no further than England’s very own capital. London is a cornucopia of brilliant experiences, that can be effortlessly romantic without being sickly sweet. The impressive collection of museums and galleries mean that you will never be short of cheap days out, and the wonderful shopping streets and architecture make a walk through the city exciting in itself. However, one of the most lovely experiences you can share with your partner is a sunset view. Read on to discover our favourite sunset spots.
The Royal Parks of London make up for the majority of beautiful greenery that the city has to offer. Without a doubt, when staying in one of the 5 star city hotels London has, you will find yourself walking through at least 1 of them. Although many opt for Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens for their break from the bustling streets, we recommend that you instead head to the beautiful Richmond Park – especially at sunset. Bring along a bottle of wine, some nibbles and a blanket and settle down in this stunning setting to view the sunset in an effortlessly romantic setting. Keep an eye out, and you may even spot some Red and Downy Deer during your visit.
If you’re seeking the wow-factor for your city break sunset evening, then look no further than the Montcalm Royal London’s very own Aviary Restaurant. Located on the very top floor, The Aviary boasts panoramic views of the cityscape, meaning that you will have complete, unobstructed views of the sunset while you dine and sip carefully-crafted cocktails.
If heights and flowers are what you like, then the Sky Garden is the place for you. The highest garden in the city, the Sky Garden’s position makes it ideal for a romantic sunset view. Settle on a bench and take in the sites surrounded by flora from around the world, before heading for dinner in the fantastic Hankies Marble Arch restaurant. This super stylish spot is the perfect setting for a romantic meal, where you can sample some of the most ingenious recreations of traditional Indian Street Food.
For the ultimate city views away from the bustling centre, we recommend that you head to North London’s Primrose Hill. Located right next to Camden, Primrose Hill is a great spot to take in the sunset in a rural oasis. After the sun has gone down, we recommend that you head back into Camden Town to enjoy some live music at one of the many, many venues that this area has on offer, before you head back to your accommodation in one of the luxury hotels in London.
