Sometimes we all need a break. Between the hecticness of work and trying to keep up other relationships in our lives it can be easy to forget to spend time with our partner. Queue the weekend breaks! London is a fabulous spot for a weekend away because of the plethora of things to do, and the romantic trips that you can take advantage of. Take a look at these London weekend break ideas and book some time away for you and your partner!


The London Eye

One of the first things that you see when you enter the wonderful city of London is the wonderful London Eye. It allows you to have a skyline view of the magical city, and you can book a champagne experience to make it that little bit more romantic. Don’t forget to take your camera for those breathtaking views! If you want a really magical experience, book your viewing at night so that you can see the whole city alive in all its glory. As one of the most popular spots for engagements, why not show your partner how much you love them by getting down on one knee?

The Theatre

There really is something magical about going to the theatre. You get fine entertainment with the one that you love. The atmosphere that the crowd emits is like nothing else, and you get to spend some quality time with your partner. Take a look at the Spring theatre guide to check what’s on before your trip so that you can pre-book and also look forward to an amazing experience together! Why not make the evening even more special by buying yourself brand new suits and dresses so that you feel like a million bucks on the evening?

Sea Life London

It doesn’t matter how old you are, you will never be too old to enjoy the sea life centre. There’s something strangely exciting about walking around being surrounded by rare and wonderful sea creatures above your head! Freaked out by sharks? It’s the perfect excuse to cuddle up to your spouse and enjoy the views! Are you thrill seekers? They can even offer a rainforest experience, where you come face to face with some creepy crawlies and other incredible wildlife! Definitely an amazing way to create some fantastic memories with your partner!

Rock climbing

If you’re looking for something that’s a bit more hands on, then rock climbing should definitely be something to consider. Put your trust in your partner and work together on climbing to the very top. It’s a great way to learn how to communicate properly with your partner, all while having an amazing day with the one you love! Don’t forget to take the camera to capture some amazing shots to show your whole family!

Whisky Tasting

Love the idea of wine tasting? Why not take it a step further and go whisky tasting at Cadenhead’s in London? An interesting fact about Cadenhead’s is that it used to be a wedding dress boutique, and it’s where Princess Diana first laid eyes on her wedding dress!

Use The Thames To Your Advantage

Sometimes, all you need is you and your partner. Why not take advantage of the River Thames and take long romantic walks alongside it? Pack a flask of your favourite poison and spend hours walking around and simply being you two as a couple again. Like the London Eye, the experience is much better spent at night because of the twinkling lights around you and the busy bustle of the day dying down.

Alternatively, you could book yourselves a tour on the River Thames on a luxury boat. See everything that London has to offer while enjoying a three course meal, wine, and each other’s company! You’ll feel as romanticised as if you were in Venice!

Columbia Road Flower Market

Why not take a leisurely stroll down Columbia Road Flower Market on a lazy Sunday morning with your spouse? There are so many gorgeous flowers to lay your eyes on, and the best part is, they’re super cheap! Convince your partner to buy you a big bunch of your favourite flowers to take home!

There are simply too many things to do in London to name in one article, but these are the most romantic and conversation provoking experiences that you can book for your and your partner. Treat yourself to a weekend away now!
