Find a taste of romance in London
London can be a fantastic place to find romance with someone special this Valentine's Day.
Although London is popular with many visitors because of its vast number of tourist attractions, there are many hidden spots, away from the tourist hotspots, which are the perfect place to find romance this weekend.
Kensington itself is a particularly beautiful area, making it an ideal place to start if you want to take your partner somewhere a little more special than the hustle and bustle of the City of London.
The Kensington Palace Gardens are just a short walk away from the Natural History and Science Museums, so if you and your date are looking for a spot of culture, as well as beauty, there's no better place to head.
Inside the Palace Gardens are many romantic spots - perfect for a picnic!
From the Flower Walk to the Italian Gardens and Round Pond, there are plenty of beautiful spaces to take your loved one. Elsewhere in Kensington, there are a number of mews streets, which are perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle. Taking your date down any of these gorgeous little streets will feel magical, but Kynance Mews is the perfect place to start if you don't know the area well.
Of course, no Valentine's Day would be complete without finding somewhere to eat. There are plenty of restaurants all over London but for something that little bit more exciting - try the Roof Gardens.
Situated on the 7th floor, the Roof Gardens and its restaurant Babylon offer some of the best views of London.
Even on a cloudy day, the Roof Gardens offer their very own unique view, thanks to their four themed areas. From English Woodland romance to Spanish Garden luxury, you are sure to find somewhere special this Valentine's Day.
If you are wanting to head further into the city, there are Tube stops near all the main museums in Kensington.
Why not watch a performance at Shakespeare's Globe or get an unparalleled view of the city from the London Eye? Wherever you go, London has many spots that are perfect for finding romance this Valentine's Day.
How to get there Guests staying at the Royal Garden Hotel can get to each venue in just a short walk via Kensington High Street.
