I have spent a large part of my adolescence as well as adulthood in London. Hence, I have discovered numerous lovely spots throughout the city, which can make dating in London a memorable experience. When it comes to dates, I have found that locations affect a lot. If my date and I liked the location, we were more prone to have fun on the date. The ambience does matter. Hence today, I am going to share some of my favourite dating spots in London, where I have had my best dates.
Strolling along Southbank
There is hardly anything as low key, yet romantic as a walk. I am a walking afficionado myself and going for a walk on the Southbank has been one of my most favorite date activity. I prefer this spot for a second or third date, as the open air and the peace around helps in making good conversations. I love to sit in the shops here for a small bite and then stroll through the area with my date, looking at the skateboarders going about and the various shops with books on sale.
Snuggling up at Aubin Cinema
If my date takes me to East London, then Aubin Cinema would be my definite choice. This cinema has cosy couches, blankets and I can also get food and wine from the bar available here. I have had great times in this place. It is comfortable, there is a movie playing and I get the option of snuggling close to my date. This is as romantic as it gets, without being too cheesy or over-the-top. It has an easy location and my date and I have always comeout smiling from this spot.
Late nights at Natural History Museum
I am a closet museum enthusiast and it makes me ecstatic when I can go to such museums on dates. I t gives me an opportunity to be in an ambience I like, and also to show off a little, as I do read up a lot on such stuff. Museum lates are my particular favorites. Here, I do not have to wrestle for space with the regular day-time crowd. Museum lates are the after hour events that are organised in museums, and you need to buy your passes beforehand. It is worth it though, as you get to marvel the exhibits with your date, in a setting that is not too crowded while sipping on choicest wines. This makes for classy dating in London.
Intimate whispers at Gordon’s Wine Bar
When I have been dating someone for long enough, I like to make my dates intimate. Gordon’s Wine Bar in Central London is a wonderful place for such a date. A myriad crowd visits this place – from new lovers to classy London escorts – and it provides just the right kind of intimate ambience. I can spend hours here, whispering sweet nothings to my date, over heady glasses of wine and delicious food. The place is low key and perfect when you are looking for some personal couple time on your date.
Picnics on the Primrose Hill
On the perfect, sunny day, there can be nothing better than a picnic to make your date a memorable one. Primrose Hill is my favorite location for such picnics. It is simple, inexpensive and most importantly, makes conversations fun under the open sky and green nature around. I just prepare a simple picnic basket and run off to Primrose Hill with my date in early afternoon. There we sit on a rug, munch on our picnic food and have the time of our lives!
