There are so many suggestions to offer any single eager to connect with potential partners. Friends might provide a diverse range of suggestions ranging from online dating options to specialized traveling chat rooms. Connecting with someone compatible is easily done. What happens next is another big consideration. If you’ve met someone special on a dating website you feel a real sense of chemistry with, romantic weekend breaks are always an excellent way to break the ice. London is always hugely popular. Here are some date ideas when you touch down in the UK’s capital based on information provided by dating experts from 100datingsites.ca.
Gordon’s Wine Bar
Located on the Embankment, the walkway on the north bank of the River Thames, Gordon’s Wine Bar is the ideal venue to begin your date. Generally considered the city’s oldest wine bar, its historic patrons have included novelist Rudyard Kipling. The atmosphere is delicate and sedate, making it quite an oasis for retreating from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis. The food menu is mouth-watering, the winelist understandably exceptional, and you can chat by candlelight.
This glass skyscraper opened in 2009 and has become a familiar modern landmark dominating the skyline. You can book a table at the Aqua Shard, where you and your partner can savor wonderful food while observing London from this breathtaking viewpoint. It has been designed to offer maximum observation conditions, with floor-to-ceiling windows and minimalist architecture. Plan your date around the menu – breakfast, lunch, or dinner. And you never know which celebrities might be a few tables away.
Self-drive down the Thames
An unusual date activity would be to hire a ‘hot tug’ for a jaunt along the River Thames. Motor-powered hot tubs, these vessels are designed to accommodate six passengers but are ideal for any romantically-inclined couple. This is such an unusual way to coast through London, taking in the spectacular and unusual views of the passing landmarks. The bonus is that, unlike official river tours, you are in charge of your journey, with full control of the route you take.
Experience a walk along Tower Bridge
Tower Bridge, with its vast twin arms that are raised to allow passing ships to sail by unimpeded, is one of the capital’s most iconic landmarks. But the best and most exciting way to experience this architectural wonder is to amble across it, staring down into the Thames from a height of 42 meters. What makes this even more jaw-dropping is the fact the walkway is made of glass, adding a frisson of terror. The best time of day to enjoy this challenge is in the evening after the sun has sunk into the western horizon of the Home Counties and the city’s myriad lights flicker into action. Afterward, there are numerous restaurants in the near vicinity where you can enjoy a well-earned meal.
Picnic in St. James’s Park
For all that you are never far from frenetic traffic and pedestrian-clogged thoroughfares, London boasts many idyllic parks and gardens. Take a picnic hamper along, and watch out for the local pelicans!
