If you’re studying in London and will be spending time with a loved one this Valentine’s Day, why not celebrate at one of the city’s most romantic attractions? There’s so much to see and do whether you’re looking for something subtle or extravagant, and most attractions are situated just short distances from the main areas of student accommodation. London can be the most romantic place on earth if you know where to look!

Hyde Park Stables

Just a short 20-minute tube journey from student housing near Southwark Station, the Hyde Park Stables are the perfect attraction for a couple. Simply stroll around the gorgeous greenery or go the extra mile for your sweetheart and book a leisurely horse ride around the park. What better way to enjoy the beauties of the city than on horseback?

Dinner for Two at Ristorante Frescobaldi

One of London’s most romantic restaurants is conveniently located less than 20 minutes from Liverpool Street Station. Ristorante Frescobaldi is the perfect place to spend your evening on Valentine’s Day, as it not only boasts stunning décor, but an exceptional menu. Enjoy high-class service, delicious food and perhaps a bottle of wine if you’re looking to impress your date. Despite the restaurant’s glamorous atmosphere, the food prices are moderate, so you don’t need to worry about burning a hole in your pocket. It might be pricier than a McDonald’s, but it is a special occasion, after all.

The Ice Bar

Just a short journey on the tube from Russell Square Station, London’s famous Ice Bar offers the ideal opportunity to cuddle up with your partner over a refreshing drink. There’s also the option to enjoy a 3-course meal form the special Valentine’s menu, but you might not want to stay in the cold for too long! The ice-themed décor and chilly temperatures make for a truly unforgettable experience – it feels like a real winter wonderland.

See the Sights from the London Eye

There’s a reason why this is one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions – the views from the top are completely phenomenal, especially if you’re lucky enough to be riding on a clear day. Take your loved one to the top of the world and admire the scenery together – it will feel like you’re the only two up there.

Since the Eye is so central, is will be easy to access from your student accommodation. London’s biggest attraction is sure to be a hit with your partner this Valentine’s Day.

No matter how you’ll be celebrating this Valentine’s Day, top attractions will never be too far from your student accommodation. London’s Ice Bar, Hyde Park Stables and romantic restaurants are just a small selection of ideas – explore the city and you might find some real hidden gems.
