You don't have to break the bank when you go out on a date so check out our top five London date locations



If you’re struggling to come up with the perfect date destination, we’ve picked out five of our favourite places in London to visit for a date – and not a single Michelin-starred restaurant in sight.

Here are our London date suggestions for a capital day out:

1. The Shard, London’s tallest building standing at an impressive 306 meters tall. Three floors of viewing platforms give you 360-degree uninterrupted views of London. As romantic as the Eiffel Tower? We’ll let you decide.

2. The London Eye, a way to see the sights of London without the dizzying heights of The Shard. This 30-minute experience gives you plenty of opportunity to get to know each other while appreciating the breath-taking views of the capital.

3. Hyde Park, pack a picnic and a blanket and head down to one of London’s fantastic green spaces. Hyde Park, the biggest and most well-known of London parks has a lot to offer. Take a paddle boat across the Serpentine or enjoy the tranquillity of the Princess Diana memorial fountain. A romantic and cost-effective day out beckons.

4. The West End needs little introduction. London’s West End is the cultural capital of the UK featuring the biggest stars of the stage and some of the most elaborate productions in the world. From comedy musicals all the way through to the ballet and opera, there is a wealth of shows to choose from. Book yours at the best price with Saga and Encore tickets.

5. Free London. Hundreds of London attractions are absolutely FREE. Visit the Tate Modern, the National Gallery or the National Portrait Gallery. If art isn’t really your cup of tea then head to Kensington for the Natural History Museum – stand in wonder in the beautiful gem room or explore Earth from the very beginning in the red zone.

London has a lot to offer and this is just a tiny selection of our personal favourites. Why not add a comment below and inspire others with your perfect dates in London?
