A romantic rendezvous in the city (for us, at least), usually consists of beer-goggled eye-batting, 8 Jägerbombs and a sloppy snog. Truly delightful, we know. The stuff movies are made of… As it turns out, however, it really doesn’t have to be this way! London is full of magical spots where a stolen kiss can go undetected from the rest of the world. Be it a first date view or a secret space to say those three words (which aren’t ‘you want another?’), our extraordinary city has the perfect place for you.
1. Whispering Gallery, St Paul’s Cathedral
Lovers can stand on opposite sides of the gallery (33m away), whisper sweet, sweet nothings and still hear each other’s words. That’s if you can stand being that far apart…you guys.
2. Crystal Grotto, Painshill
Dating back to 1760, the Crystal Grotto is historical, enchanting and truly magical. Located in Painshill Park, a tranquil escape from city life may just make sparks fly.
3. St Pancras Station
You can’t get much more romantic than a train station and kissing…underneath a beautiful statue of other people kissing. Now that is what movies are made of.
4. St Dunstan-in-the-East, Tower Hill
A secret garden in the bombed out shell of a former church makes this Grade I listed building a stunning and truly intimate affair.
Sounds like an obvious choice, but the Southbank never ceases to make us fall in love with London. Long strolls, beautiful views and plenty of places to stop for al fresco affection, this is ideal for any-time-of-day dates.
6. Clos Maggiore, Restaurant
Possibly one of the most romantic restaurants in London, Clos Maggiore would be perfect for a special occasion with that special someone.
7. Anywhere and Everywhere!
To fall in love in London is to fall in love with life.
