London Valentines Day

Event: London Valentines Day
Where: London

There’s no better place to spend Valentine’s Day this year than in the heart of London. There are plenty of romantic destinations for you and your special someone to explore. We’ve compiled a list of exciting events happening around the city of London for you to choose from.

Traditionally Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine is celebrated annually on February 14. The day became associated with romantic love within the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the 14th century, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.

Silent Sounds Boat Party: 

Here’s a great experience for you to enjoy. It’s decidedly different and something we are sure you will love. The Silent Sounds Boat Party takes place on the Thames on Saturday 17 February. Cast off is at 19:45 and the boat will be rocking until 23:30.

Every partygoer will receive a headset that acts as a Bluetooth receiver for the music being played. There will be a DJ available to spin the decks all night long, allowing  you to party the night away without waking the neighbours. Travel along the Thames, see the starlit night engulfing the luminous vista of the London skyline while dancing to your favourite tunes

Please note there is a £15 minimum card spend on the boat so do remember to bring cash too!
