Stuck on some last minute Valentine’s ideas for this year!? Don’t worry because here are our hot tips of things to do on Valentine’s Day with your loved one.
The Brainy Choice: Sleeping with Sherlock
Before you fall into a Cumberbatch-related fantasy, stop right there because this Valentine’s choice is totally innocent and actually very educational. The Museum of London’s first ever all-night event is jam-packed with fun Sherlock activities, including a dinner, quiz and a masterclass in forensics. There’s even an all-night Sherlock movie marathon for those who are too giddy to sleep!
Make Personalised Valentine’s Cards with Elena Deshmukh
On February 13th, pop in to Liberty’s stationery department where the delightful Elena Deshmukh will be on hand to help incorporate delicate personalised touches to the most loving greetings card of the year.
The Sweet Choice: Chocolate-making workshop
MyChocolate’s glass-fronted workshop overlooking Regent’s Canal is in trendy Shoreditch and provides the perfect setting for getting a bit messy with your partner. Delve into melted chocolate as you create handmade goodies as part of this lively 2-and-a-half hour experience. A little birdie tells me you may even get given a cheeky glass of bubbly to help the creative juices flow!
The Tasty Choice: Les Trois Garcons
French is the undisputed language of love so why on earth would you want to dine on any other cuisine at Valentine’s Day? The menu is typically French, appealing to the classy couples amongst you, but the romantic elegance of the central Le Trois Garcons restaurant is just *so* chic, it will leave any girl or guy swooning.
The Tipsy Choice: The Attic Bar
On the 48th floor, Attic Bar offers unbelievable views across the city. Suited to both eligible singletons and trendy couples who are only too keen to flaunt their power-couple status in front of London.
The Homely Choice: Chocolate Party Kits
All the fun of a chocolate factory from the comfort of your own home! Kits from The Chocolate Hedgehog come jam-packed with everything you need to make delicious homemade fudges, truffles and flavoured chocolate bites. Perfect for the cosier couples who want nothing more than to stay in their pyjamas all evening with a little bit of sweet-toothed fun.
The Singles Choice: Bounce
If you’ve made it this far down the list, or in fact if you’re on this page at all, chances are you are actually looking for a Valentine’s activity. However, for those who haven’t quite reached a relationship status, I would recommend a trip to Bounce Ping Pong for their Anti Valentine’s Night. Guests are actively encouraged to play a bit of Ping Pong, have a little boogie with DJ Mighty Atom and laugh at exes over a helping of extra garlickey pizza.
The Luxurious Choice: The Grove
The big spenders among you may wish to whisk your loved one off to The Grove, the luxury estate only 18-miles from London.
The Quirky Choice: Ripley’s 18+ evening
As thinking ‘outside the box’ is now the new black, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not might just be so far from romantic that it’s actually the most romantic thing on the list. They’re hosting an 18+ night billed as ‘entertainment with an adult twist’ which could be literally anything judging by some of the things that go on in that place.
