The great metropolis with groundbreaking architecture, vibrant culture and two-millennia history. Everyone has heard that description of London. The same can’t be said about its romantic side. It has wrongly been in the shadow of commonplace London characteristics. This post is here to correct this misconception and turn the spotlight on the most romantic places of London attracting young men in love and dating over 60 older people who are as passionate as young ones.
The French Kiss/Lover’s Embrace statue
London being an object of so many people’s love gratefully returns love to them. Whether you are a traveler who came to London to feel its special atmosphere or a native imbued with English culture to a tee, you’ll be sent love vibes without delay. And art is the first London’s helping hand in this case. Ten years ago the bronze statue of a couple was installed at King’s Cross Station. A man and a woman frozen in a loving clinch reminds everyone passing by to appreciate each other. Besides, this statue symbolizes that love has no boundaries and nationality since the man is English, and a woman is French.
There is no need to buy tickets to Italy. Little Venice is here within London, in its northwestern part. The stretch of the Grand Canal welcomes anybody who likes privacy and wants to escape the city noise. After visiting crowded station and inspired by the statute the Grand Canal is a perfect place to stroll and merge with a beautiful nature. Along the shores you can find cozy restaurants to have a cup of coffee and watch waterbuses.
Queen Mary’s Garden
It is hard to find a woman who does not like flowers. A floral gift has always been the sign that a woman is special and means something more. Visit to Queen Mary’s Gardens is not just a sign, it is a real declaration of love. To see more than 12 thousand marvelous roses of different varieties planted there and to feel their rich scents would be a highly original gift to a your significant one. Plan your visit for June. The first two weeks of that month are the best time for roses blooming.
A viewing terrace of Tate Modern
Watching the fantastic sunsets is an essential attribute of any romantic experience. Though, romance in a London way should include a breath-taking view of the metropolis from Tate Modern’s viewing terrace. Here you can have an opportunity to enjoy the pure view of the city on the natural background. Two people staring in one direction and sharing such an unforgettable experience will get closer to each other and never associate London only with urbanism, overcrowdedness and traffic. Have a look at modern art collections in Tate Modern to end this visit on a creative note.
These four places might be a good start for discovering the romantic side of London. If your hearts are filled with genuine feelings you will find romance throughout the cosmopolitan city.
