List of things to do in London for couples

  1. Go for a boat ride in Little Venice

Located in the North Western part of the city on Bloomfield road, a ride on the colorful houseboats on this stretch of the Grand Canal is considered to be the most romantic experience. Away from the din of London, the tranquil waterways are a haven for peace. Make sure you treat your partner at the quaint waterside cafe here.

  1. Watch the iconic landmarks by air

If one thing infuses romance in a relationship and pumps up the adrenaline then nothing could do it better than being up in the air with your loved one. Take a ride on a helicopter and see the skyline of London from a different perspective.This is the best way to see the famous landmarks of the city. Flights depart from Battersea in central London, and last usually for 18 minutes.

  1. Consider spending a night at Shangri la

If you want to experience all London has to offer without even leaving your room then spend a night with your partner at this unique boutique hotel- Bingham. From your cozy bedroom, fifty floors above the streets, you can catch breathtaking views of the surroundings. With so much to do here, ensure you book your flights to London as well as your hotel stay, in advance for getting the best deals.

  1. Enjoy a fancy meal at Aqua Shard

If there is one place which is bound to leave both of you absolutely smitten, then go for a fancy dinner date on the 31st floor of the tallest building in London, Aqua Shard. As you sip cocktails and watch the sunset from the Atrium Bar, the spectacular views are sure to infuse new life in your relationship.

  1. Pamper yourselves with a luxurious spa

There is nothing better than a pampering spa at the end of the day to relax and de-stress the body. Depending on the type of service, the spa treatment can be chosen. One thing is certain, it will leave the two of you with nothing but a lot of peace and happiness.

  1. Spend an evening at Clos Maggiore

Said to be the most romantic restaurant in the world, Clos Maggiore enjoys a unique location at the iconic Covent Garden. With warm and intimate interiors, and a delicious and balanced menu on offer, a meal here at night is sure to rekindle romantic feelings.

  1. Create memories with a theatre package

For a unique date experience, take your someone special to an incredible theatre package. You can both decide from a variety of award winning plays, enjoy welcome drinks and an intimate dinner before the show, and finally settle down to watch the show from the best seats in the house.

  1. Have a drink in novel surroundings

Located in West End, this bar is a must for couples looking to enjoy a drink in some of the most unique environment. The ICEBAR provides this special date experience as it is carved out of pure ice. The best part is that the place is extremely affordable.

Hailed as one of the best cities of the world, London has some incredible things going, especially for couples. Having said that, trying to experience all of them can be quite overwhelming.  Make sure your Emirates flight booking is done a few weeks before departure so you have time to plan and make the most of your trip to London.

We do hope this post will narrow down the vast list of mega things to do, and make your date with the city a fruitful one.
