Whether you are thinking of popping the question or just want to show your significant other exactly how much you care, London has plenty of attractions and places that are just perfect for a little romance.

Spoiling that special someone with a trip to the city is sure to earn you some serious brownie points with the other half, so why not check out our best London hotel deals? We have some seriously smooch-worthy reasons why you should be spending Valentine’s Day in the capital this year.

Wine and Dine

One of the best excuses to indulge the one you love (and yourself of course!), London is filled to the brim with amazing culinary talents offering a variety of cuisines from around the globe, so it would be madness not to sample a few of these delights during your visit.

From dining with a panoramic view of the London skyline to staying nearby with a fabulous menu of mouthwatering dishes available at our hotels restaurants London, a romantic break at the Montcalm at the Brewery offers the perfect luxury base for you to tantalise those taste buds!

Once you’ve finished sampling the gastronomic delights on offer, there are plenty of romantic spots for you to walk off those calories. Located just a few minutes away from our accommodation London City, you’ll find Regent’s Park, which is the perfect spot for a moonlit stroll.

With beautiful tree-lined walkways and formal gardens with several decorative fountains and sculptures to discover, this is the ideal green space for a little fresh air after a candlelit dinner.

Music is the Food of Love

If you’re a couple of music lovers, then Valentine’s Day offers a treat for the ears with both the London Philharmonic Orchestra and music by Ravel and Saint-Saëns coming to the city this year.

You don’t need to travel further than London to speak the language of love either as Valentine in Paris is being performed as part of the classical season for 2020. Travel to enchanted forests, enjoy a piano concerto in a Paris café and listen to classical fairytales without leaving your seat at the Royal Festival Hall.

Performances start at 7:30pm sharp, so to make it to the hall from our accommodation London city, take the tube from nearby Moorgate Station using the Northern line, and you’ll be dining on the food of love in just over 20 minutes.

The Perfect Backdrop for Popping the Question

London has some incredible cityscapes and one of the best skylines in Europe, so if you were thinking of getting down on one knee during your stay at our discount hotels London, then you have plenty of romantic backdrops to choose from.

If you have a head for heights, then a sunset flight on the Coca-Cola London Eye offers some spectacular views over the city just as the sun disappears for the day and the lights of the many offices, attractions and buildings start to twinkle.

If you want to do something a little different, then a visit to Hyde Park’s Serpentine Lake offers a unique opportunity to ask that special someone if they’d like to tie the knot. A visit to the boating lake gives you the option to rent a small boat for a couple of hours as well as providing you with a lush green backdrop.

Just be careful about getting down on one knee as you don’t want to rock the boat!

Another unusual place to ask someone to marry you in London is St. Paul’s Whispering Gallery. This historic venue has some very unique acoustics, with a faint whisper being able to be carried from one end of a long gallery to another, making it ideal if you want a proposal with a difference.

And don’t worry if you’ve blown the budget on an engagement ring either as we have the best London hotel deals to make your stay in the city one to remember.

Special Events

If you are taking advantage of our best London hotel deals this Valentine’s Day, then you’ll have a little more to spend on some of the sensational events that are taking place around the city this year.

One for the adventurous couple, the BucketRace Valentine’s Day Couples Hunt challenges lovers to discover more of the capital with teams of two set the task of exploring the city and undertaking a series of challenges in order to win a prize for the team that finishes first.

All you need to take part is a smartphone, Twitter account and a love of adventure, but comfortable clothing and a good pair of running shoes are advised as this BucketRace can get a little competitive with hundreds of active couples taking part!

If you’d rather take things a little easier and relax with your other half during your stay at the Montcalm at the Brewery, then why not book a special afternoon tea at our hotels restaurants London before climbing aboard one of the many vessels that cruise the river Thames?

Offering a new perspective on this amazing city, a river cruise can help you find out a little more about the buildings that flank the river and provide a more calming, serene and relaxing mode of transport for your romantic getaway.

With various stops located along the river, it also offers an excellent opportunity to check out a few of the other districts of London without having to deal with the often-crowded tube stations or buses that service the capital.

Carmen is also coming to the West End this year, and those heading to the city during February can catch a performance at the iconic London Coliseum. Valentine’s Day tickets are sure to sell out quickly, so if you want to treat your partner to a night in the West End, make sure that you book your tickets and hotel room as soon as you possibly can to avoid disappointment.
