Whether you’re half of an overly affectionate duo or free as a bird, London’s a great city to be in this Valentine’s Day. From delicious fare in restaurants on every corner to music in clubs across the city, there’s something for everyone this holiday. Here are two ideas to get you started.
1. Watch a classic romantic flick
Head to Cadogen Hall in Brompton on Saturday February 13 and get a two-for-one deal. First, get the chance to hear the Amadeus Orchestra perform Rachmaninov's Second Piano Concerto—a key musical component of the classic movie you’ll be watching next. Stay for the showing of the 1945 romantic film “Brief Encounter,” starring Celia Johnson and Trevor Howard.
2. Visit a museum, try a new cocktail
Head over to the Brunel Museum in Rotherhithe on Saturday night and enjoy a whole host of exciting activities—including an outside fire pit by their pop-up cocktail garden, music from the Nathan Osgood Trio, and a chance to explore the Brunel’s romantic collection of love diaries.
From movie showings to dinner specials, London has no shortage of special ways to celebrate with the one you love—be creative this year and explore new territory in one of the world’s most exciting cities.
