Day 1 - Romantic London
Start your day with a romantic room service breakfast in bed. There are so many options to choose from: healthy, hearty, or just a simple croissant and coffee. Plan which treatments you are going to indulge in from your room and then stroll over to the award-winning Peak Spa at Jumeirah Carlton Tower.
Their Day Packages are the perfect combination of massage and full-body treatments. Bliss
After your treatment, you’ll feel relaxed and virtuous so don’t undo all that hard work – The Botanist is a cosy brassiere-style restaurant perched on Sloane Square. It’s walking distance from the hotel and the competent menu is modern European but reasonably priced.
Book a window table, they’re great for people-watching or showing-off how romantic you are!
If you tried a dessert at The Botanist, you’ll appreciate the short stroll back to the hotel. Wander along upmarket Sloane Street and dive into your favourite designer or jeweller to surprise your loved one with an impromptu gift. Once you reach the Jumeirah Carlton Tower, enjoy afternoon tea at the Chinoiserie . The resident harpist will add even more romanticism to your afternoon.
After freshening up in your hotel room or suite, get your chauffeur to take you to the Merlin Entertainments London Eye. This spectacular landmark is the biggest observation wheel in Europe and presents stunning views across London at dusk. For added exclusivity, hire your own pod for just the two of you and have your butler serve drinks and strawberries.
Stroll along the cosmopolitan South Bank to your early dinner venue: Skylon at the Southbank Centre. This modern space has floor to ceiling windows with sparkling views of the River Thames. A pre-theatre option is best selected (it opens at 5:30pm) if you want to catch a performance at Royal Festival Hall. The range of Southbank Centre venues have an ever-changing roster of essential theatre, dance and opera - it’s a must-see for any culture-lover.
Day 2 - Romantic London
After a mid morning wake-up call, make your way over to The Wolseley on Piccadilly. Breakfast here is served until 11:30 and is the place to start the day in the West End. After your second caffe latte, it’s time to get down to some serious shopping. Close by is Selfridges, but we recommend that you engage the services of your own personal shopper to maximise your time – it’s the second biggest store in the UK, after Harrods.
Let your personal shopper arrange delivery of your morning purchases to the hotel. Explore the iconic Trafalgar Square and the National Portrait Gallery. Sitting atop the gallery is the National Portrait Gallery Restaurant. It’s somewhat of a best-kept-secret, but still buzzes with life and energy. The views from the window tables are quite something – akin to a scene from the film Moulin Rouge.
The National Gallery lies next door. It’s a free gallery worth visiting for its striking collection of Rennaisance and Modern portraits. What could be more romantic than gazing at a Monet or Van Gough’s masterpiece, ‘Sunflowers?’ Audio guides in different languages are available.
Bond Street is another beautiful shopping district. Running parallel is Saville Row, London’s original sartorial headquarters. Here, you’ll find the best tailors and menswear specialists. Back on Bond Street are clusters of haute couture fashion houses and jewellers.
For the ultimate dinner cruise, try Bateaux London. The cruises offer fine food and entertainment from the resident jazz band. The cruise culminates in after-dinner dancing and the onboard photographer will capture your dreamy moments on camera.
