5 Best Romantic Things You Can Do In London During Autumn
Want to do something romantic with your partner or soul mate in London? It may get confusing at a certain point as to what all you can do together and spend some quality time and make unforgettable memories with each other.
Crisp leaves, bronze hues, and stunning sunsets: London is well known for all of these. The autumn season is the season when you feel the love is in the air. It has that perfect chilly breeze, clam sun shining and, the surroundings have become colorful with the falling of dry leaves and flowers.
- Horse Riding in Hyde Park
The HydePark covers an area of 350 acres in Central London, and Hyde Park is the biggest Park where people come to enjoy some fresh air and relax. It is also known as the city’s green lung and can be a nice getaway with your partner.
Horse riding in such a beautiful park would create such beautiful memories between you and your partner. Private Sessions for two are available from the Hyde Park Stables. You can choose to gallop with your better half into the sunset before the afternoon is through.
- Fruit and Vegetable Picking
Make your date work for dessert and go apple picking here. Greater London contains some of the best visitor-friendly farms. Even better, at Hewitts farm in Orpington, you can also put in the leg work and then treat yourself and your date to a barbecue on-site.
Hewitts Farm is a wonderful place to visit. It is a family run business which is set across 78 acres. They grow a wide variety of fruits and vegetables for ‘Pick Your Own’ and also have a large selection for sale throughout the year in their farm shop. Their family has been working on the farm for over 30 years, and the farm its self has been here for hundreds of years.
The farm is open every day throughout the year and closes only for a few days over the Christmas and New Year period. ‘Pick Your Own’ usually begins in June with strawberries, gooseberries, and spinach.
- Watch the Fireworks!
If you are in London, do make sure to attend a bonfire night celebration. There is one happening somewhere every day in London. If not on weekdays, then surely on weekends. Make sure to find about this, which includes fireworks, and this can be very romantic to just sit under the fireworks. If the glow of the bonfire and a hot toddy doesn’t get your sparks flying, nothing will.
- Getting lost in Hampton Court maze
Hampton Court Maze is a hedge maze. It was planted between 1689 and 1695 by George London and Henry Wise for William III of Orange at Hampton Court Palace. The maze is nestled in a huge area. It was originally planted with hornbeam, although it has been repaired using many different types of hedge.
You can spend an hour or two going around in circles. It is the perfect place if you and your date are getting on.
- Go Star-gazing
Stars are always the symbol of eternal love. So, add some extra sparkle to your date by going star-gazing. Head to Greenwich where you’ll have a great view. If the weather is too cold, you can head inside the Royal Observatory to the planetarium instead. It’ll be like a date straight out of the movies, and who doesn’t want that?
Although we all know that London is the land of romance and love and the list of doing romantic things can never have an end. But these are the top 5 things you can do with your partner during the autumn season in London.
