GO Romantic in Central London

Romantic Evenings in Cental London With a range of beautiful historical buildings and lush green parks it's easy to see why more and more people are choosing Central London as a great alternative to the likes of Paris when it comes to a romantic weekend away.

If you’re traditional at heart you’ll want a classical hotel with that added touch of luxury.

There are many famous hotels in this area and one of the most romantic has to be The Grosvenor House [map], Park Lane. This world-class five star hotel is the perfect place to take a loved one as a special treat or for an anniversary celebration. Not only does this hotel have an elegant décor and king size rooms, there’s also stunning views across the London skyline and Hyde Park as well as the leafy suburbs surrounding Park Lane. If you want to be truly pampered take advantage of the great gymnasium facilities or book in for a beauty treatment in the exclusive spa.

Staying with the familiar names option, a visit to The Waldorf Hilton [map], Aldwych, gives you the kind of accommodation that the rich and famous are accustomed to. This is the perfect place to do a bit of celebrity spotting whilst enjoying the enviable location of being right in the heart of London and close to the West End.

Alternatively, try an intimate bed and breakfast or smaller guesthouse where you can guarantee to be pampered. The best place for this kind of accommodation is the Bloomsbury district.

Dining opens up a myriad of possibilities. Choose from the best in European Cuisine in The City. If you’re feeling flush head to the former Bank of New York building, Leadenhall Street, which is now home to Prism restaurant. Here you can enjoy discrete and personal service as well as a top class menu and extensive wine list, as you gaze at the auspicious décor.

Celebrity chef Gary Rhodes is in charge at Rhodes Twenty Four [map], Old Broad Street. It’s sometimes difficult to get a table here due to its incredible popularity, but once inside customers can enjoy a fantastic view over the bright lights of London, which beats a candle-lit table in semi-darkness hands down. Try some traditional British dishes from the menu and you’ll be delighted to discover that Mr Rhodes has added his own twist to produce mouth-watering and unusual food.

Forget about the British reserve and try some of London’s very best French and Italian restaurants.

You’ve read the cook book so perhaps it’s time to enjoy the real thing at The River Café [map], Rainville Road. This much celebrated Italian restaurant offers a peaceful haven to the rich and famous and has received fantastic reviews from the British press.

Enjoy a range of signature dishes such as white asparagus risotto and the chocolate nemesis. In the summer diners can enjoy a romantic al fresco meal with views across the Thames.

When the evening comes there’s the glittering West End to take advantage of, or if you have the passion of an Italian tenor head to The Royal Opera House [map], Covent Garden, for world-class performances.

If you prefer to just relax with your loved one and a few drinks try the stylish 25 Canonbury Lane, Islington, which offers a decadent environment complimented by low lighting from enormous chandeliers.
