Five Valentine’s Day Date Ideas in London

Surprise your better half this year with an unforgettable date in Britain’s capital. Renowned the world over for its history, restaurants, and theatres, London offers a near unparalleled variety of date ideas for those looking for a little extra romance.

There is such an overwhelming amount to choose from in London that deciding on what to do for Valentine’s Day can be a bit of a struggle in itself. Fortunately, we’re here to help guide you through the best options the city has to offer and help you have a truly special time this February 14th.


They say the way to anyone’s heart is through their stomach, so why not try one of these fabulous eateries to impress your partner?

The Orrery on 55 Marylebone High St offers couples a romantic and relaxed venue with a delicious French menu to delight the senses. The surroundings of an old stable block add to the ambience and ensure that this remains a popular destination for London daters.

An option for the slightly more adventurous is Galvin at Windows. Found on the 28th floor at 22 Park Lane, Mayfair, this delicious eatery offers top level cuisine to enjoy along with the stunning views across the city. Though you may want to leave your fear of heights at the door!

Enjoy a carafe of the finest Spanish wine in Drakes Tabanco. Located on 3 Windmill St, Fitzrovia. This intimate taverna offers some of the finest tapas in the city; don’t forget to try the sherry while you’re here.

London isn’t just renowned for the quality of its restaurants. What better way to ensure it is a night to remember than by treating your Valentine to a show:

Impress your date with a trip to see the acclaimed show Wicked, at the Apollo Victoria Theatre. The show has been breaking records worldwide and is now one of the longest-running shows in London’s West End.

Why not take in a classic and take your other half to a performance of Les Misérables. Seen by over 70 million people around the world, and in its 30th year, it must be doing something right!

If you want a show a little closer to home, why not take a trip to see Made in Dagenham? Its sell-out run at the Adelphi Theatre in the Strand is continuing this year, and with reviewers calling it the best British musical since Billy Elliot, what better way to impress your date than with a ticket to the show everyone’s talking about this year? It features the magnificent Gemma Atherton as well as some of the Incognito Artists starts, who often perform as the brilliant singing waiters act.

Whatever you choose to do, make it a Valentine’s to remember!


  1. I don’t live in London but it would be a useful post indeed if I did. Restaurant suggestions are always handy. Nice post x

  2. A great list! I may pass this on to my sister as she lives in London. My Husband has work, so my V Day will be spent with my 3 little darlings!
