Day 1 - Romantic London
Start your day with a romantic breakfast in bed. You can choose from a variety of breakfast options – healthy, hearty or just a simple croissant and coffee. Before you prepare for the day, you can plan relaxing treatments to indulge in, for you and your loved ones, at the comfort of your room. You may also head to the award-winning Peak Spa at Jumeirah Carlton Tower to avail rejuvenating massages and spa treatments in their Day Packages.
After you are done at the spa, you can visit The Botanist, a cosy brassiere-style restaurant, located on Sloane Square. A walking distance from the hotel, the restaurant serves modern European cuisine and is reasonably priced.
After lunch at The Botanist, you can take a short stroll back to the hotel. On the way, you can visit the upmarket Sloane Street and check out your favourite designer or jeweller to surprise your partner with an impromptu gift. Once you reach the Jumeirah Carlton Tower, you can try the traditional afternoon tea at the Chinoiserie. The resident harpist will make your afternoon even more romantic by playing melodious tunes.
After a short break in your hotel room or suite, you can ask 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. To make your experience more private, hire a pod for just the two of you and have a butler serve you drinks and strawberries.
Stroll along the cosmopolitan South Bank to your early dinner venue – the 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 17:30) 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 cafe latte, it’s time to get down to some serious shopping. Close by is Selfridges, it’s the second biggest store in the UK, after Harrods. We recommend that you engage the services of your own personal shopper to maximise your time.
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 is an interesting place to visit, if you are interested in art. It’s a free gallery that houses a striking collection of Renaissance 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 also available.
Bond Street is another beautiful shopping district, running parallel to Savile Row, London’s popular headquarters for tailored clothing. Here, you’ll find the best tailors and menswear specialists whereas Bond Street has 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 ends with after-dinner dancing and the photographer onboard can capture your romantic moments on camera.
