Top places to visit in London this Valentine's Day
Plan Valentine’s weekend away to the city of London that is memorable, fun and romantic. Take your loved one on an adventure around the sights; dine at exclusive restaurants or experience the city like never before.
Whether you are in the early stages of your relationship or have been together for years, make Valentine’s a special occasion that will leave fond lasting memories.
To get around the city easily, base yourself at Fraser Place Canary Wharf – our location is perfect for travelling around the city by tube, enjoying nightlife and discovering the known and not so well known London landmarks.
Valentine’s day is about spending time with the person you love and sometimes the best way to do that is to have a date night at home. Let Fraser Place Canary Wharf be your home from home. All of our impeccable serviced apartments boast full kitchens allowing you to cook a special meal for your sweetheart. If you love indulging in seafood start your Valentine’s day early by visiting the Billingsgate Fish Market to choose the best and freshest local seafood. Be warned, the market opens at 4.30 am and close at 9:30 am so when we say early we mean it, luckily our Marina cafe starts serving breakfast at 7 am and coffee or tea is available 24/7.
If cooking is not your style but the idea of a cozy night in, overlooking Canary Wharf from the comfort of your own apartment still appeals, take a walk through Giant Robot- a street food market, an undercover paradise for food lovers where you can peruse multiple cuisines and styles to and mix and match the perfectly per-prepared meal. Take a break at the 360-degree island bar for a delectable cocktail or one of their 38 beer taps while enjoying stunning views of the city before bringing your finds back to Fraser Place. Our reception is staffed 24 hours a day with knowledgeable concierges should you need advice or recommendations, whatever the time of day.
Luxury living in the centre of London
As you know, Fraser Place Canary Wharf is ideally situated near the tube to give you access to all of London’s top attractions, but if the journey is just as important as the destination why not rent a luxury or classic car for your stay to motor around in style and comfort. Bespoke offers Ferrari 206 GT’s, Morris Minors, Aston Martins and more for 24 hours or longer. Add parking to your stay at Fraser Place Canary Wharf for only £10 a day, with weekly and monthly rates also available.
Get a birds-eye view of the city from the London Eye with a VIP experience that can include wine, champagne or chocolate tasting as you rotate not once but twice around the Eye. Take it up a notch with a Cupid Capsule experience; just you and your sweetheart in a private capsule with a bottle of Pommery Brut, decadent chocolates, and the London skyline.
After seeing London from the sky why not experience it at ground level with a romantic stroll through the roses at Queen Mary’s Garden. Take in the largest collection of roses in London as you make your way through pathways and gardens that were first planted in 1932. Benches are hidden throughout the shrubbery. They have been carefully placed to specifically add an air of privacy and mystery to your walk, making it the perfect spot for a picnic of goodies from Regent’s Bar and Kitchen.
Sunset views across the city
For a more adventurous Valentine's Day why not explore one of London’s most well-known landmarks from the top. Choose the Sunset or Twilight Expeditions offered by Wire & Sky at The O2 to discover a different side of the city. The sunset expedition is perfect for catching the last rays of winter sun over the rooftops while the Twilight expedition will capture the sparkle of the city as it changes from day to night. No experience is necessary and all equipment is provided by Wire & Sky along with expert instruction and guidance.
Dinner and a movie will make for a classic Valentines.

Within walking distance of Fraser Place Canary Wharf, you won’t need to worry about transportation and can stop off for a nightcap at some of London’s most talked about bars.
London is a city of many faces, its professionalism sits side by side with late night dens of inequity, why not explore the darker side of the capital city for a provocative and sumptuous Valentine's trip.
Kick off the evening with a master cocktail class for two at the London Cocktail club; highly trained mixologists will guide you, and your love, through the makings of 3 different cocktails as well as teaching you tricks of the cocktail trade. Follow the river west from Frasers Place Canary Wharf to reach The Box Soho for a night of splendour (be warned it is not for the faint of heart). Reserve a private table and dress your best (black tie optional) to gain admittance to this exclusive club. Doors open at 11 pm with performances starting at 1 am, for a night out on the town that harkens back to the smoke-filled alleys and opium den days of London’s past.
However, you decide to spend your Valentine’s Day you can be assured it will end well in the trendy and well-appointed surroundings of your apartment at Fraser Place Canary Wharf, check out is normally 11 am but speak to our reception staff about arranging a late check out for the day after the night before.
