Romantic Activities in London

No romantic break to London would be complete without a theatre trip, and whether you decide to splash out on a box in a west end theatre, or soak up atmosphere at an open-air Shakespearean delight at the Globe Theatre, you should certainly consider booking a show of some sort.

London is famous for its markets, and you can find all manner of treasures at Camden market or at Portobello Market in Notting Hill, London’s most famous street market. Convent Garden is always worth a visit for the performers and the ambience, as well as the market itself.

Champagne and proposals go together like strawberries and cream so once your girlfriend has become your fiancée you’re sure to be on the lookout for some fizz. Check out the Vertigo 42 champagne bar in Tower 42, or drink at the world’s longest champagne bar in St. Pancras Station.

A tour of London is always a fun choice but if an open top bus isn’t your thing try taking a tour by mini cooper instead. There are also ghost walking tours starting at St. Paul’s tube station if you want to be sure your girlfriend will be gripping your hand tight.

If you’re looking for an engagement ring pay a visit to Hatton Garden, London’s jewellery quarter, and browse the gems on offer. You can even have a jewellery making lesson at the London Jewellery School.
