If you’re lucky enough to have someone to share those very hot summer nights with, then good for you. Not only do you get someone to hold at night, but there are also some wonderful things to do in London with your lover this summer that are simply made for two. If you don’t have a lover, try them with a friend. Or your dog (if they’re a fan of oysters).
Let’s start off strong with the renowned aphrodisiac. What better way to get in the mood for lurve than slurping away on something raw and fishy? Awwh shucks. Have we got you all hot and flustered? Perhaps it’s time to cool off with a chilled, crisp glass of Prosecco. But £25 for two glasses of fizz AND oysters is nothing to get heated about. Not until the end of the evening anyway. Reserve your place here.

The best way to reach someone’s heart is through the funny bone. Although, if you take your boyfriend/girlfriend to see The Book of Mormon, you might just laugh your way past their heart. The hysterical and successful new(ish) musical is running at London’s Prince of Wales Theatre. You can check availability and buy tickets from £36 here.

If you and your beau share a love of food, then why not share your food? And La Brasserie’s Chateaubriand is not just your regular sharing meal. It’s a board of deliciously tender, prime cut of steak served with lashings of béarnaise sauce on the side. Lap up the vibrant atmosphere of Chelsea’s favourite all day French restaurant, without wincing at the price – it’s only £24.90. You can book your place here.
