Valentine's Day in South Bank

January 26th, 2018 | by Jennifer Edwards

Valentine's Day in South Bank

Don't turn your nose up at V-day- whether you're single or loved-up, we've got a fine selection of special events and offers to treat yourself this February. C'mon, it's February! It's cold and the skies are grey and dark - so sprinkle a little TLC and excitement and grab your nearest and dearest for some red velvet pancakes, a pamper session at the spa, a nice dinner with a view or a surprisingly affordable gin-tasting sesh. 

Go on, let's all enjoy V-day this year!

  • Cruisin' together

    In the words of Smokey Robinson - "I love it when we're cruisin' together" - and when in London, it's got to be City Cruises. 

    Something about the lapping waves and the way the light reflects in the water - we go weak at the knees. It's a romantic sight and the perfect way to treat that special someone to the best Valentine's Day in London ever. They've got speedboats, dinner, entertainment, city lights and more - all on the River Thames.

    Day-time date? How about a Champagne Afternoon Tea? Or for night owls: city lights, a glass of fizz, live music, maybe a little dancing, but that's up to you. Choose from a range of romantic packages including a Valentine's Romantic Dinner Cruise, Valentine's Riverlights Cruise, The Ultimate Valentine's Cruise, and more. 

    For more information, including full package details, pricing and to book, click HERE.

  • Love all around

    A true icon of London's skyline - and one of the city's most romantic destinations - why not book a special trip to the London Eye this V-day?

    Enjoy a Champagne Experience and take in the sublime views of London's skyline with a chilled glass of Pommery Brut Royal Champagne in hand. Or, for something extra special, push the boat out and get a Cupid's Capsule...The ultimate of romantic experiences, you'll enjoy a private capsule for two that comes with a bottle of Pommery Brut Royal Champagne and a luxury box of Hotel Chocolat Pink Champagne Truffles, both served by your own personal host.

    If you well and truly are going for it, and are prepared to pop the question on V-day, opt for the Proposal Capsule. As well as all the luxuries included in a Cupid’s Capsule, there will also be a photographer on board (posing as a London Eye host so as not to spoil the surprise) just waiting to capture the magical moment your one and only says yes! And if they say no, it'll be a lovely, albeit slightly awkward ride back down to earth.

  • Valentine's Day at OXO

    Score some brownie points this Valentine's day and pull all the stops out by taking your special someone to OXO Tower Restaurant and Brasserie. There's something about getting that lift right up to the top of the tower, and seeing the glinting lights of London over the River Thames as you take to your table that is breath-taking, ever time. As one of London's most romantic restaurants, OXO will be preparing a specially-prepared set menu with Champagne and live music to entertain you in the background as you dine.
