Do your research

Love can sometimes take a lot of work and so can a trip to London if you want to make sure it’s memorable. Do a bit of research before you hop on the train or plane and try to plan out some of your days so you know where to go and what kind of things there are to do. It’s also good to know a few places that you can escape to if the weather decides to turn grey.

Choose the right hotel

Picking the right type of accommodation is very important. If you don’t feel comfortable in the place that you’re staying, it will be hard for you and your partner to get into a romantic mood. Here at the Park Grand London Paddington, we pride ourselves on providing some of the best hotel rooms in the city and our central location means that you’ll never be too far from your favourite attractions.

Whether it’s a romantic meal at one of London’s many fine restaurants or an evening trip to the awe-inspiring Natural History Museum, there’s plenty of ways to get the romantic sparks flying.

Watch a show

You and your partner will be spoilt for choice when it comes to entertainment this month. With hundreds of bars, clubs and venues dotted around the city, you’ll never be too far from an amazing night out.

Plan a few surprises

There’s nothing more romantic than a spontaneous surprise. Even if your partner knows that you’ll be spending Valentine’s Day in London, you can still plan little surprises that will remind them how much you love them. You could stock up on rose petals and cover the bed for a romantic evening in or you could organise a trip to an attraction that your partner has always talked about. Thanks to the internet, there are plenty of ways to book ahead and plan a few romantic surprises.
