Whether you’re in a new relationship or have been with your partner for years, now and then it’s nice to get away for a short break. While it can be nice to take the kids away with you, you don’t always need your little ones in tow. Sometimes, it’s nice to spend some one-on-one time with your partner, at least, I think so anyway.
If you’re thinking of planning a short getaway with your partner, London could just be the perfect place. It’s packed full of lots to see and do, there are lots of lovely places to enjoy a meal, and there’s always lots of deals online for short breaks. What more could you want?
To give you an idea of whether a weekend in London could make the ideal break for you and your partner, here’s everything that you need to know.
There’s Plenty of Accommodation Options
The great thing about staying in a city like London is that there’s accommodation options for all budgets. From fancy five star hotels to more budget-friendly guesthouses, there’s plenty of options. There’s also lots of online deals sites like Wowcher, which often have luxury London hotel stays for budget prices. So before booking a hotel, make sure to check these out.
Getting There and Getting About is Easy
Whether you opt to fly, drive, or take the train, getting to London couldn’t be easier. If you opt to drive parking may be an issue unless you select a hotel that offers free parking, that is. As for getting around once you’re there, there’s plenty of buses, tubes, and taxis that you can use. You could even opt to cycle – Boris Bikes are located around the city, or walk.
You’ll Be Spoilt For Choice of What to See and Do
What’s the downside to London? The problem with London is that there’s too much to see and do, leaving you not able to do a quarter of what you want to while you’re there. The good news, however, is that you can always plan another trip to do the stuff that you had to miss out on. During your trip, aim to visit at least one museum and art gallery, as well as a few of London’s other iconic attractions. From the London Eye to Hyde Park, there’s so much on offer to do; it can be hard to decide what to see and what to skip.
There’s Lots of Lovely Places to Eat
What’s a romantic break without a candlelit meal for two? The good news is London is home to thousands of eateries, offering an array of different types of cuisine. From good old pub grub to fine dining, the London food scene offers you everything you could want and more. From the iconic Brick Lane Brasserie – Curry House, to Chez Bruce – a French restaurant, there are various places to choose from. So whatever it is you fancy, there’s sure to be somewhere that’s got the ideal menu.
The Nightlife is Out of This World
Whether you fancy hitting some clubs or prefer to chill out in a wine bar, London’s got you covered. The nightlife in this vibrant city is out of this world, with all sorts on offer. From dancing and drinking to concerts and theatre productions, London has plenty to keep you occupied.
