So if you’re looking for a romantic spot this Valentine’s Day that won’t break the bank, look no further. We’ve found the top spots in North London that we are sure will have you feeling the love.
1. Hill Garden & Pergola, Hampstead Heath
If the Montagues and Capulets lived in North West London we’re 99% sure that this would be Romeo and Juliet’s secret spot. With overgrown wisteria wrapped around pillars, a hidden tranquil pond and flowers of every color blooming from every direction, Hampstead Pergola is nothing short of a real-life fairytale.
To be or not to be in Hampstead this Valentine’s day… that is the question.
2. Little Venice Canal
Yes, you guessed it... London has its own Venice! Well… not really, you won’t find any gondolas or Basilicas… instead you’ll find narrow boats and stucco fronted Edwardian homes, which in a way is just as magnificent (in a classic British way)!
If you’re looking for a peaceful location sat on a blanket next to the water watching the boats go by, this is the spot for you; and if you’re lucky you might spot one of London’s most famous couples Rosie & Jim chugging along on the old Ragdoll… we’ll keep our fingers crossed for you!
3. The Secret Garden, Regents Park
That’s right, we’re letting you in on one of London’s best kept secrets, and it will not disappoint. Hidden away in London’s famous Regent’s Park, found at the end of a wisteria-clad tunnel is a truly magical garden with a stunning fountain at the centre.
Surrounding the garden are tall scalloped hedges cutting you off from the outside world and creating a real sense of intimacy – a rare treat in busy London! Seriously guys, we’ve let the secret out now, don’t walk… run.
4. The Boating Lake, Alexandra Palace
