How to Spend Valentine’s Day in London


If you are looking for the last minute getaway consider some of these truly amazing properties such as the newly redone five-star Franklin Hotel in Knightsbridge.  This luxury boutique property nestled among townhouses, overlooks Egerton Gardens, and is steps away from the Victoria & Albert Museum and Harrods.

During February guests at The Berkeley can rent out the rooftop terrace for a private screening of classic, romantic films including ‘Some Like It Hot’ and ‘Notting Hill’. Couples can snuggle together under down feather Moncler blankets in the handmade, wooden chalet-inspired cabins, custom-made to cozily fit two people. Package includes a bottle of Laurent Perrier Rosé Champagne, mulled wine, and a selection of winter canapés.

If you are looking for the romantic countryside, we suggest Belmond Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons, a 90-minute drive into Oxfordshire, for either an overnight, or even just day trip for a five or seven course lunch and stroll through the gardens, or for those culinary connoisseurs a class at the renowned Raymond Blanc cooking school.

Guests who book a Valentine’s package at the Lanesborough will receive 24-hour personal butler service, Champagne with chocolate dipped strawberries and assorted pastries upon arrival, late check out and daily English breakfast at Céleste, the hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant, or delivered to the room.

Blakes, a romantic five star boutique property in Kensington, offers tranquility and seclusion on a quiet London street.  Designed by former Bond girl Anouska Hempel, now known internationally for her incredible interior designs, this couture hotel is a world of grandeur and frequented by celebrities. Check out the Corfu suite in tantalizing white with mother of pearl furniture.

In the Shoreditch neighborhood, visit The Catch Champagne Bar & Lounge a swanky, candlelit space oozing sex appeal that serves a menu of Champagnes and Bellinis.

At Scarfes located at the Rosewood London, fantasy is reality with this beautiful library lined with walls of books, a roaring fireplace, and a mahogany bar where you will find designated cocktails for Valentine’s Day.
