No matter how many years you have been blissfully wed, there are always high expectations when your anniversary rolls around yet again. You may always be wondering what you can do to keep the flame alive while showing your spouse just how much you love them. Why not take a weekend away to London, where there is so much romance in the air you can feel it with every step you take? Yes, it’s a huge metropolitan area, and there is always heavy traffic, but that shouldn’t stop you from having the most insanely romantic anniversary weekend ever. Here are 3 ideas to get you started.
1. Book the Honeymoon Suite at a luxury hotel
Maybe a luxury hotel such as the Four Seasons should be mentioned. Not only is this a luxury hotel with amazing rooms and service, but it is also centrally located for all the most important attractions in town. There are museums and other cultural sites to explore, and its proximity to London’s best shopping spots is great for gift-buying. Just don’t forget to order room service with champagne in the evening, because there is something traditionally romantic about the popping of the cork.
2. Showboat Dinners on the Thames
Speaking of champagne, did you know that you can enjoy dinner on the River Thames on a showboat, and enjoy two great experiences rolled into one? Not only will you be taking a romantic cruise down the Thames, but you can also book a showboat cruise complete with a four-course dinner and that much-desired champagne on the City Cruises website. There are a number of packages to choose from, but there is nothing quite like the fun – and romance! – of a showboat cruise and dinner.
3. Explore London’s Romantic Parks
What anniversary would be complete without a moonlight stroll through any of London’s most romantic parks? These are known to be romantic, and not only will you have the beauty of your relationship to explore, even after all these years, but you will also have some of the most amazing scenery as a backdrop. Some of the parks, which couples have chosen as the most romantic, include the Hampstead Heath with it’s lovely Hill Garden, Primrose Park with what is argued to be some of the most breath-taking views of London, or perhaps a more traditional stroll through the most renowned park in the city, Hyde Park. Each has its own allure, and to miss a hand-in-hand midnight stroll is a definite error on a romantic anniversary weekend in London.
Whether you spend your honeymoon at one of London’s most famous hotels or have always wanted to enjoy dinner on the River Thames, now is the time to treat your spouse. You never know what tomorrow will bring, and if your hours at work become longer or more demanding, this may be the last chance for romance until another year rolls around again. Enjoy your relationship and keep the romance alive in a city that has so much to offer, and enjoy London as only lovers can.
