London Hotels Offer A Weekend Trip Full Of Romance
Has it been a while since you really took time out to appreciate your partner? A weekend trip to London is a great way to fall back in love with the city. London has something to offer all types of couples looking for a romantic weekend break; full of charming London hotels, restaurants and bars.
There are many markets in the capital, which are a fascinating and fun way to spend the morning. Treat your loved one to a bunch of roses or perhaps something more exotic at the Colombia Road Flower Market, one of London’s most famous. Borough Market is sure to get your creative juices flowing, if you’re a budding Gordon Ramsay. Jostling for space alongside street cafes, coffee bars and more, are lively and vibrant market stalls.
Pack a picnic and head to one of the many parks, gardens and green areas in the city, in the afternoon. Choose from a gardeners High Wycombe dream of Kew Gardens, take a paddle or a pedalo out on the Serpentine in Hyde Park or take in the 22.5 hectares of flowers, plants, woodland and more of Holland Park.
By boat you will experience a brilliant way to view the city of London. Make sure to pack your sea legs as a cruise along the Thames to Greenwich. With many London hotels situated near the river, catch one of the many cruisers and head for the top deck – the boat ride takes you past some of the city’s most famous landmarks and you’ll disembark at a place even the most hardened hearts will fall in love with. Visit the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, where time began, and it’s Royal Observatory, where you can learn all about the stars and the night sky.
Pretend you’re in a winter wonderland at one of London’s many outdoor ice rinks, even if it doesn’t snow this year. The courtyard and Somerset House is transformed, come November. Take in the beautifully lit house and surroundings when you book your slot as dusk is setting and skate arm in arm around the rink. On the way home to London hotels, stop off for a cheeky mulled wine.
