Love is in the air! And so it is that time of the year again… Valentine’s Day. Here is my recommended list of the most romantic place in London to visit at any time:
- between Blomfield Rd
- Warwick Avenue and Warwick Crescent
- W9 2PB
- Tube: Warwick Ave
Early mornings and the winter months are the preserve of the Serpentine Swimming Club, but from May to September there’s a warm welcome for everyone in this section of the Serpentine lake – although the water is not heated. It’s not chlorinated either, a boon for swimmers who prefer to avoid the stuff, as well as to the wildlife (you may find yourself sharing a dip with the local ducks and swans). The gated family area with a (chlorinated) paddling pool, sandpit and swings means parents can relax while their children play. There’s a private sunbathing area and sun loungers for hire and a kiosk within the lido grounds makes it possible to order from the popular Lido Café next door.
- Hyde Park
- W2 3XA
Hill Garden and Pergola
A favourite of local artists, this formal Arts and Crafts garden, created between 1910 and 1925 by Thomas Mawson for soap magnate Lord Leverhulme and restored in the 1990s, is a little-known part of Hampstead Heath.
- Inverforth Close
- off North End Way
- NW3 7EX
Primrose Hill, on the north side of Regent’s Park, commands one of the most iconic views over London – and certainly one of the most romantic. It’s a popular picnic and kite-flying spot though, so for more peace and quiet aim for an early morning sunrise stroll before the crowds set in. The surrounding area of the same name is just as attractive as the celebrities who frequent the gastropubs and quaint cafés along Regent’s Park Road and Gloucester Avenue.
Taking in the leafy green beauty at Royal Botanical Gardens in Kew is the perfect way to spend a romantic afternoon. There are numerous ways to spend your time at the gardens, set over 300 acres of land. Visit the Victorian Palm House to see a variety of luscious plant life, see the Chinese Pagoda built in 1762, or take in an aerial view of the grounds on the Tree Top Walkway. You may find love begins to bloom in the picturesque grounds.

See you all in March.
