If you are looking for somewhere to visit with your partner then London is among the top choices to consider. The UK capital is a thriving and vibrant city where any couple can enjoy the time of their lives.
So, what is that makes this place so magical for couples to spend time in together? There are a few special reasons that make it perfect for a romantic trip you are sure to remember for a very long time.
Get Away from It All
One of the very first impressions you are likely to get of London is that it is the ideal place to get away from it all for a few days. If you have been struggling to spend time together at home then this trip will give you the chance to do so in an exciting setting.
The feeling of being very far from home can be incredibly liberating and can cause you both to feel freer and more relaxed then you have in a long time. Even just a couple of days of feeling like this can make you feel completely refreshed by the end of the trip.
Even in such a huge and busy city you may both end up feeling as though you are strolling through the streets in your own little world. If you want to really feel far away from it all then head to one of the huge parks or else go for an early morning walk when there are far fewer people around.
Feel the Magic of the Thames
The River Thames has played a huge part in the history of London and continues to be a very special element in the overall magic of the city. Many of the busiest parts of the UK capital are located alongside the river but there are also quieter spots to explore here as well.
You may decide to go one of the amazing London river cruises, take a trip to a relaxed waterside pub or go for a walk in a park along the river. Any one of these activities will allow you to feel the magic of the Thames while getting close to nature.
It is also worth bearing in mind that the River Thames flows for a long distance inland from London as well. This means that you can go out to explore out it far from central London if you prefer to do it in this way, at somewhere like Windsor or Oxford.
Get a Taste for the Nightlife
The London nightlife is famously thrilling, so it could be perfect for adding some spice to your trip here with your partner. You may want to get started by going out and getting a terrific meal in a London Valentine’s Day restaurant, for example.
There are plenty of places to eat for you to choose from, ranging from expensive and formal to great value, informal places. You could gain some incredible memories of great meals in a variety of places across the city.
After this, maybe you will decide to keep the good times going by heading off to a pub or club in the city. As with the restaurant scene, there are enough options here to make choosing one a fairly tough task that needs you to put some time into it to make a good decision.
Wander Round the Markets
It is clear that each couple enjoys doing different things when they are exploring new places like London together. Could it be that in your case wandering around some cool markets is something that you will both love getting to do in the UK capital?
If this is the case then the massive variety of different markets here will make it easy to pass a great day doing this. From Brick Lane to Camden Lock and from Covent Garden to Borough, there are markets here for every taste and style.
This could prove to be a great way for you to get a fun day together buying some stuff and trying out the food stalls along the way as well. It could also turn out to be a fine way of seeing different parts of the city in a way that suits you.
In summary, London is the kind of city where every couple can look for their own perfect way of spending some quality time doing something different. There is so much to do here that it is just a question of looking around until you find exactly what you are after.
