London isn’t renowned for being romantic like Paris, nor is English considered a language of love but we defy anyone who says that the British Capital can’t be romantic because if there’s anything that the British do is celebrate in style, and given that St Valentine’s Day is widely celebrated in the UK you can expect some fabulous events on the cards, some great gift ideas for your loved ones, and a general feeling of love in the air in this charming capital.
Valentine’s Day in London this 2010
London Eye Valentine Experiences and Cupid’s Capsule
Our first suggestion comprises the London Eye Valentine’s Champagne Experience whereby for a reasonable price you and your loved one will receive a 30 minute experience on this famous Ferris Wheel. Thus, from the 11th to the 14th of February you will get the opportunity to romance your partner with a glass of chilled Pommery Brut Royal Champagne, a red rose, and chocolates whilst enjoying the sublime views of London. Alternatively if you would really like to go all out for this special day then the London Eye is offering a Valentine’s Cupid Capsule package whereby you will have the opportunity to experience the stunning London skyline and spoil your loved one with a romantic private capsule. This exclusive experience comes complete with a bottle of Pommery Brut Royal Champagne, a red rose and a luxury box of chocolates. You will also receive priority boarding to make your Valentine’s Day celebrations truly special. For further information on prices and further offers check out the official London Eye website.

Our final suggestion comprises Valentine’s Day at the Royal Observatory whereby couples can enjoy a romantic evening and a unique after dark experience gazing at the stars. The evening includes a slightly racy “Valentine Stars” planetarium show, a chance to gaze at the moon and the stars through the gigantic 28-inch telescope, and the opportunity to stand on the Prime Meridian and take in the breathtaking view over London from the Meridian Courtyard. Plus there’s a glass of bubbly for all ticketholders and a red rose for each couple. Splendid!
