Now that the holiday season is over and the new year has commenced, it is time for us to start planning for the year, and that includes planning for all the upcoming special occasions. To kick start the year we have that one special day to show someone you love how special they are.
Over the years we have seen christmas, valentines and even easter holiday being massively commercialized by big co-operations. This high rise in sensationalism can easily take away from the moment where people become more concerned with the gifts and parties while losing sight of the true meaning. Of course, we love a good spoil, and it would be untrue for us to say that the idea of receiving a gift doesn’t excite it even if a little bit. In this article, we would like to highlight all the different experiences that you can do to celebrate the day of love. Because let’s admit the memories you create hardly amount to the material gifts you receive. These are the top tips on how to spend your Valentine’s Day this year.
Sunset dinner cruise
If you’re visiting London from out of town, part of the benefits of staying in a centrally located hotel like the Park Grand London Hyde Park is that you are located to most of the attractions in the city, while being able to access the others by tube. Several places in the city offer a private sunset cruise to visitors. You can choose one of the commercial options that set sail from the River Thames, book a private boat and sail The Serpentine or head over to Little Venice where you will be greeted with the Italian charm of gondolas and boat restaurants.
Romantic dinner for two at a luxury hotel
London is gifted with several dining spots and features top Michlin star restaurant and other elegant dining options. Spoil that person you love this valentines day by booking a seat at the Chefs Table. Restaurants throughout the city tend to get fully booked over Valentine’s Day that we recommend a more private spot at one of the many hotels in the city. Most of the hotels in Paddington London feature top-notch restaurant that will impress food-lovers anywhere. To elevate the experienced pair the stay with booking a honeymoon suite or one of the Family Rooms in London.
Picnic at the park
The city of London is blessed with several parks and gardens in the city that sometimes you will forget that you are standing in a large metropolis. Some of the parks near The Shaftesbury can tend to be a little touristy, and this includes Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens and Regent’s Park. Opt for the less busy spaces and head to one of the many underrated parks. A personal favourite is the Kyoto Garden. This space has everything that you can expect for a romantic picnic. It offers a tranquil Japanese-inspired space sorrounded diverse flora and fauna making up the park’s space.
