3 picturesque places that are perfect for a winter date in london

Dating In London

London is a beautiful city. The architecture, atmosphere, and landmarks seem to be taken out of a magical Disney movie or a Hallmark postcard. Contact us to learn more about london property to rent

The only downside is that you can’t enjoy everything the city offers but one night out. This is especially troublesome on a date night when you want to have all of London’s goodness.

How about this then – I’ll offer a perfect date plan composed of 3 places for you to consider. All of them will manage to capture the romantic spirit of the Smoke in winter.

1. The Shard

If you don’t know where to go in London – just visit the Shard. This is one of the tallest buildings in Europe shaped like a shard of glass. Climb your way to the top (the 72nd floor, by the way) and enjoy a picturesque 360-degree view of the Capital.

What are the pros of coming here in winter?

  • You get to see the whole city in its snowy grace. The Christmas lights and decorations scattered throughout London are an amazing site.
  • You can have a lot of cheeky fun at local attractions. Green screen photos, for once, are an amazing memory you can take back home.
  • It’s warm and cozy inside.

What are the cons?

  • There is only one. You’ll need to cough up some quid. Every attraction costs 15-20 pounds, plus you’ll have to pay for the entry ticket.

2. The Borough Market

This wonderful market is tucked away under the London Bridge, but you can’t afford to miss it if you like a good snack. The place is a foodie’s paradise!

Once you arrive, you’ll first notice the tempting smell of chocolate floating around the air. Then, you’ll be treated to eye candy stands, carts, and storefronts. All of them are creatively decorated in an appealing, rural manner.

Next, you’ll notice that the selection of food and drinks here is out of this world. Everything from delicious, freshly baked donuts to some of the finest hotdogs you’ll have in your life is on display.

What are the pros of coming here for a date?

  • More food than you can eat
  • Seasonal specials like hot chocolate and mulled wine
  • A great selection of small, cozy pubs

What are the cons?

  • Cash only. Credit cards are not an option for shop owners here as most are relatively small and mobile.
  • The nearest ATM is pretty far away.

 3. Roof East

Jamaican sunshine on a rooftop in Stanford in the middle of the winter? That’s Roof East for you – one of the best places in London to have an active date with fun!

The place opened in November and is designed to represent a tropical paradise from Cool Runnings. A tropical paradise that has bobsleighs! And curling!

What are the pros of spending a date here?

  • Tons of active, fun
  • Jungle on a rooftop
  • Spicy Jamaican treats and cocktails


  • The place can get a bit crowded, especially during the weekends

Where would you go for a date?

Curling in the jungle, hot chocolate and donuts, and a wonderful view of London in winter seems like a perfect date to me.
