Take a ride on a helicopter and see the skyline of London from a different perspective. This is the best way to see the famous landmarks of the city. Flights depart from Battersea in central London, and last usually for 18 minutes.

From your cozy bedroom, fifty floors above the streets, you can catch breathtaking views of the surroundings. With so much to do here, ensure you book your flights to London as well as your hotel stay, in advance for getting the best deals.

4. Enjoy a fancy meal at Aqua Shard

If there is one place which is bound to leave both of you absolutely smitten, then go for a fancy dinner date on the 31st floor of the tallest building in London, Aqua Shard. As you sip cocktails and watch the sunset from the Atrium Bar, the spectacular views are sure to infuse new life in your relationship.

5. Pamper yourselves with a luxurious spa

There is nothing better than a pampering spa at the end of the day to relax and de-stress the body. Depending on the type of service, the spa treatment can be chosen. One thing is certain, it will leave the two of you with nothing but a lot of peace and happiness.

6. Spend an evening at Clos Maggiore

For a unique date experience, take your someone special to an incredible theatre package. You can both decide from a variety of award winning plays, enjoy welcome drinks and an intimate dinner before the show, and finally settle down to watch the show from the best seats in the house.

8. Have a drink in novel surroundings

Located in West End, this bar is a must for couples looking to enjoy a drink in some of the most unique environment. The ICEBAR provides this special date experience as it is carved out of pure ice. The best part is that the place is extremely affordable.

Hailed as one of the best cities of the world, London has some incredible things going, especially for couples.
