Whether you’re looking for Valentine’s ideas, or need inspiration for a romantic weekend break with your other half, London has plenty to offer lovebirds.

If you’re travelling to the city from out of town, expenses can stack up quickly –so choose to stay at a cheap hotel in London and you can save money for an extravagant meal, theatre show or an exhibition. See more ideas for things to do for couples below…

See a West End show: From musicals to comedy favourites to cutting-edge new productions, the West End has a show for everyone. You don’t have to spend a bomb on tickets, either. Head to the ticket booth in Leicester Square for discounted seats at top West End shows: you can get up to 50% off on a huge variety of performances, from big names like Chicago and Wicked to new productions like the Lady killers.

Visit a museum: London has rich pickings when it comes to museums, and loads of the best ones are free. For extra romance, go for a quirky and intimate museum with a niche theme rather than the behemoth-like British Museum or Natural History Museum. Sir John Soane’s Museum is a treasure-trove for art and design fans, showcasing the stunning interiors of the 18th-century art collector’s former home.

Take a walk: Get your sturdy shoes on; London’s parks are a boon for couples. Climb the hill at Greenwich Park up to the Royal Observatory for a sweeping city view, or walk among herds of deer at Richmond Park. As well as rolling royal parks, London has a network of canals perfect for a Sunday stroll. Stop by a waterside pub at Little Venice in Maida Vale (so-called because of its network of canals) or walk along the Regent’s Canal from Camden Lock to Kingsland Road and see the changing scenery.

Have cocktails: The traditional boozer has all but gone off the radar in London –for couples looking for a romantic drink, the city has a new wave of cute and intimate cocktail bars that are far better suited to the task. Looking for suggestions? Worship Street Whistling Shop is a Victorian-inspired den of iniquity off City Road in Shoreditch with gin and ‘experimental’ sections alongside the main bar, while the speakeasy-style Bourne and Hollingsworth in Fitzrovia serves cocktails in jam jars.

Learn to dance: From salsa to ballroom to Scottish ceilidh, there’s a dance class for everyone in London, no matter your age or fitness level. Perhaps the most fun and energetic classes for couples is swing dance –pop on your swirly skirt or bowtie and learn to lindy hop, jitterbug and jive like a swell couple of hepcats. Regular classes are put on all over London –check swingoutlondon.co.uk for one near you.

Cruise along the Thames: What’s the best way to catch of London’s most iconic sights in one scoop? Take a cruise tour down the Thames of course, preferably while the sun’s setting! The stretch of river between Westminster and Tower Bridges gives you an up-close eyeful of the city’s most attractive romantic structures, including the London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. Clink a glass of champagne and watch London sail by…
