London is a great place to spend your date night, because there is so much to see and do in all a relatively small space. So whether you are choosing to spend just the evening, or you are on a longer couples break, keep reading for some phenomenal suggestions on what to do.
See a show
One of the most popular destinations for visitors to the big smoke is the West End. This is because it’s London’s theater district, and it’s there that you can find all of the famous big name shows that are on.
Of course, a great deal of these are all singing, all dancing, musical productions often based on famous people like Michael Jackson, or Carol King. Or on favourite films like The Lion King and Wicked (based on the wizard of Oz).
Although you can also find some more serious products running in this area including the scary Woman in Black running at the Fortune Theatre, or The Kite Runner at the Playhouse Theatre.
Remember too that if cost is a concern booking online on the same day as the performance can save you as much as half the ticket price. Leaving you cash left over for other fun activities.
What is more perfect for a date night than going to an attraction that gets you a little anxious? Then you can reach out to your other half for support and hug, and they can prove how brave they are by helping you out?
With this in mind, why not do a ghost walk at night, or even take a trip on The Ghost Bus? Where you can sit cuddled up together while you hear about all the gruesome and scary things that have occurred along your route.
Sing your heart out
However, if you and you the half would prefer to get you kicks in a less spine tingling way, why try somewhere like Bunga Bunga as they offer karaoke in Covent Garden instead? There you can sing your heart out. But not to a pre-recorded backing track, but as the frontman of an actual band!
You can also grab a delicious bite to eat, and a few cocktails to give you the Dutch (Italian?) courage you need to get up on stage.
Rock out at a gig
If you and your partner fancy reliving a little of your youth on your date, why not get tickets for a gig?
There are plenty of to choose from all over London, such as the Smyths Tribute band tour. Or you could go for something a bit more up to date such as the Lana del Rey gig in Brixton in July?
Experience al fresco theater
If it’s something a little more cultural, but still fun you are after why not attend a play at the open air Globe theater in Southwark? There you will find a selection of Shakespeare’s works such as Twelfth Night and Much Ado About Nothing on offer. As well as some non-Shakespearian offerings such as Boudica.
You can even attend a midnight matinee, and sit out under the stars with your loved one. What could be more romantic than that?
