What would be more romantic than Christmas in London? Arguably, the second most romantic time of the year, after Valentine’s day, why not use this Christmas to indulge in the many festivities London has to offer. Below, are the top 8 recommended romantic things to do in London to help you make some wonderful memories for years to come.
- Hit up the Christmas markets
Hit up the local markets and indulge yourself with plenty of seasonal food and drinks. It is also a great place to do some last-minute Christmas shopping and you will be able to find one of a kind gifts and keepsakes. Leave a decent amount of time free as you will find yourself getting lost in these markets for hours!
- Christmas lights in central London
It might be a good idea to save this activity for the early evenings when the Christmas lights can be appreciated in their full glory. Bond street is particularly known for its breath-taking display of festive lights, this time of year.
- Watch a festive film on the big screen
The ‘Hyde Park Lookout’ screens festive films throughout the month of December and is a great way to unwind and end an evening of festivities.
- Visit Windsor Castle
Depending how much time you have to spare, Windsor castle is perfect for a day full of exploring! Open throughout most of the Christmas season, it is exquisitely decorated for the festive season and will make for a wonderful activity.
- Visit Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park
Enjoy warm food, festive drinks and many unique and quirky stalls at Winter Wonderland. They also have a selection of games and rides and are great for families as well as couples. Grab your candy floss and spend hours getting lost in the festivities with your partner.
- Go Ice skating
From the Natural History Museum to Somerset house, London has various amazing ice-skating venues. Just picture holding hands with your partner and gliding across the ice before retiring to the side lines with a steaming hot chocolate.
- Visit Kew Gardens
Whilst Kew Gardens is an absolute must at any time of the year, the festive lights will provide you with a whole new experience and make you appreciate the gardens from a new perspective.
