Friday in London
Evening: Explore London's South Bank

Saturday in London
Morning: Stroll around London parks
Start off your Saturday in London surrounded by 1920s art deco luxury with breakfast at The Wolseley, where the most important meal of the day is taken very seriously. Enjoy a classic full English, or one of The Wolseley's specialties, including smoked haddock kedgeree.
Once your morning appetite is satiated, take a walk through some of London's most beautiful parks. Stroll through peaceful Green Park and make a brief stop in front of Buckingham Palace before making your way into St James's Park to spot the famous resident pelicans and tame squirrels.
Afternoon: Visit a museum in London
Keep it intimate by exploring one of London's smaller museums or galleries, such as the Institute of Contemporary Arts. You can also head into Trafalgar Square to wander the halls of the National Gallery, or take in centuries of people, both famous and unknown, captured in time at the National Portrait Gallery, next door.
Alternatively, walk down to Embankment Pier and venture over to Greenwich with MBNA Thames Clippers. On arrival, the leafy London area offers a range of delights to entertain all lovers, whether you enjoy history at the National Maritime Museum, stargazing at Royal Observatory Greenwich or just lazing around in peaceful Greenwich Park.
Evening: See a London theatre show
Opt for an early pre-theatre dining menu at one of London's many restaurants. Book ahead to nab a sought-after window table at the Portrait Restaurant, in the National Portrait Gallery where your meal will include unparalleled views of Trafalgar Square and across Whitehall to the Houses of Parliament and the Coca-Cola London Eye.
From here, the West End’s hit shows are right on your doorstep. Get on your feet with great hits in Motown the Musical, marvel at majestic costumes in The Lion King, or secure tickets to an opera or ballet performance at Covent Garden's sumptuous Royal Opera House.
For a post-theatre nightcap, why not head to the dark, glamorous surroundings of the Beaufort Bar at The Savoy Hotel for signature cocktails served until the small hours of the morning.

Morning: Feel like royalty at Historic Royal Palaces
Whether it's wandering through the gorgeous gardens of Hampton Court Palace, admiring the sparkling Crown Jewels at the Tower of London or being seduced by the sedate majesty of Kensington Palace, you’ll uncover lots of historical love stories (and might also find a secluded spot to steal a kiss or two).
Afternoon: Enjoy a British tradition with a Sunday roast
After you've worked up an appetite exploring in the morning, there's nothing better on a Sunday afternoon than a delicious Sunday roast. As the name suggests, the team at Roast in Borough Market know a thing or two about this particular meal. Or, for a truly decadent experience, try Simpson’s in the Strand, where carvers wheel trolleys to the table and slice juicy roasted beef directly onto your plate.
Evening: Discover Soho and Carnaby
Round off your weekend of romance in and around Soho, which is home to an array of cocktail bars, eateries and entertainment venues. Settle down to some jazz in the atmospheric Ronnie Scott’s, and splash out during dinner at Michelin-starred Social Eating House.
