Valentine’s for Culture Lovers: London

Although dining out in distinctive restaurants and catching a flick at the pictures is a lovely way to spend an evening with that special someone, somehow, on what should be the most romantic day of the year, it doesn’t always cut it. When you and your loved one like to explore destinations together, discovering the world one stone-turn at a time, think outside of the box this February 14 and do something a little different.

Treat that special someone in your life to a trip to the capital. In addition to the fabulous eateries and entertainment available, there is a wealth of attractions and landmarks to visit together.

Hotels near Liverpool Street are in a great location for discovering many areas of London Town. As well as being well connected via the underground system, hotels near Liverpool Street are just one mile away from sites including the Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, the Museum of London, and St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Staying slightly out of the centre and booking through a budget hotel company, you will benefit from low cost room rates, leaving you with more funds to flash on your time in the city. While your days will be filled exploring landmarks, taking photos and taking in quintessential London, add some pizzazz to your Valentine’s city break in the evenings.

London is brimming with fabulous places to dine and world class West End shows. While in the capital, do not forget the part that fine dining restaurants and outstanding productions have played in the city’s moulding. As you’re doing things in style, starry-eyed and sensual, take your pick from restaurants including Hereford Road, Hix and St John, arguably the three best dining choices in London today.

From there, venture into the West End for a night in theatre land. Nothing is quite so suave as a pre-theatre dinner date, followed by a sensational show. You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to booking your tickets, however, if you are yet to see Les Miserables on stage, do not pass on the opportunity.

Without a doubt, the blockbuster movie has made Les Miserables a firm favourite this Valentine’s, so be sure to book in advance to avoid disappointment on the day. Despite the Oscar nominations, and Golden Globes, nothing can beat the on stage production of this musical phenomenon.

Alternatively, there are a number of other plays and productions on the West End this winter. If you want to fully embrace the feel good factor of your trip, book tickets for shows such as Mamma Mia, Wicked, We Will Rock You!, Matilda The Musical, or Viva Forever!

Do Valentine’s Day a bit differently this February and look online to book hotels near Liverpool Street at particularly low prices. Nothing beats relaxing with that one special person in your life and treating them to a weekend away, creating memories that you will both remember forever. Book now before it’s too late, and benefit from bargain budget hotel rates.
