February is technically the final month of winter, so congratulations: you’ve pretty much survived another one in London. To make it go by quicker, you’ll always have London’s jam-packed schedule of events and things to do to make you forget about the chilly settings. Though we’ll never stop loving this city, February is also a month particularly steeped in romance, so there’s also that to look forward to. And hey it’s the shortest month so you damn better make the most of it by doing aaaaaallll the things on this list. Okay, that might be a little much, but you get the idea. Here’s the best things to do in February 2023.
1. Go and gaze at some bubbles!
Bubbles! What?! How did they get there?! A couple of weeks ago, these giant spheres of light and colour landed in London and blessed us – and our timelines – with the dreamiest of winter content. February’s beginning is much like January’s close: gloomy, cold and grey. This installation is the antithesis of all that – and you can catch of glimpse of these bubbles up until February 10. Evanescent by Sydney-based artist Atelier Sisu, have appeared around the world and now it’s London’s turn, with the objects setting up shop on the west side of the Cheesegrater (The Leadenhall Building). Hurry, though; you haven’t go much longer to see them!

2. Twirl around the Canary Wharf Ice Rink
Is it obvious that we’re missing the festive season? Because we are. Fear not, though. You can still do your best Torvill and Dean impressions at one of London’s temporary winter ice rinks: Canary Wharf. While the other lovely London winter ice rinks have mostly thawed away by February, the Canary Wharf edition is still going strong until the 25th, meaning you can have a late winter spin before the days start getting brighter.

3. Get smitten by these brilliant London Valentine’s Day activities
Romance ain’t dead everywhere in London, and there’s plenty of ways to make sure you aren’t receiving a raised eyebrow and/or death stare on the morning of the 14th when you’re expected to lay out your plan for the evening. Yes, you won’t forget, because here’s your reminder! Rumour has it that Cupid is paying a visit to London town in February, so it might be about time to start planning where you and your significant other are spending February 14. Here’s a few tips:
🎱 Head out for a game: Ah, the old and trusted activity date. Never fails. Be it crazy golf, bowling or the newly opened clay shooting spot, these are great for drawing a laugh and bonding on the day of love.
🎂 Grab yourself a loved up cupcake: The Hummingbird Bakery deliver the goods all year round, and between February 1-14, you can purchase a beautiful little Valentine’s cupcake to take home to your partner. If you haven’t doubled up with one for yourself, try not to eat it on the bus home!
🍰 Or a heartbreaker cake: Everyone’s favourite dungeon of decadence is back with the goods this Valentine’s Day. Chin Chin are serving their heartbreaker cake between February 1-14 and, friends, it’s time to indulge yourself. Who wouldn’t want to be wined and dined by that creation?
😋 Tuck into some Valentine’s Day specials at a meal out: Plenty of London restaurants are running specials on and around the 14th. The Big Easy have a tempting lobster and prosecco offer, and there’s even a special afternoon tea to be sipped up at Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
