Romantic Things To Do

There are few more romantic locations in London than the city's museums. The National Gallery has an oasis like feel in the hustle and bustle of central London with the darkened subterranean galleries and spotlit masterpieces providing and almost hypnotic experience. The low key but charming restaurant / cafe carriers over the respectful attitude people observe in museums to create a really nice setting to talk about what you have experienced together.


Depending on your budget a trip to central London if you are on a low income is a humbling experience. If you are about to present a £400 engagement ring and you take a stroll past the jewellers located on or around Old and New Bond Street it will be like presenting a steak and serving a 99p cheeseburger.

On the other hand if you have cash to flash then taking your partner to Tiffany and buying them a princess cut 4 carat diamond will almost definitely get you laid, a lot.

Perhaps a magicians subterfuge is needed and you take them to Primark for some bargains and then take them for a walk around the more expensive shops when they are full of food and shopped out.
