London is an incredible city, and the perfect place to take a date. From walking around the many parks and green areas, to pretending you're back in the 60s on Carnaby Street, checking out the shops on Oxford Street, or letting your kids have a whale of a time in Hamley's, there is so much to see and do. That being said, it can sometimes be difficult to impress a date if they've already seen and done it all, especially if you are on a budget. Luckily, there are many fantastic date spots that you can put your own personal twist on in London that cost absolutely nothing.
You know those romantic places you see in all the best romantic movies with beautiful greenery, amazing views, and enough space to offer you some privacy? Primrose Hill is one of those places. Located in Regents Park, Primrose Hill offers one of the most spectacular views that London has to offer. You can pack a romantic picnic lunch and spend a relaxing day lying in the grass. Or, you can go for a nice walk with your partner.
For one of those somewhat awkward first dates, when you are trying to be creative while still being able to talk and get to know each other, a museum is always a classy option. Around the back of the National Maritime museum you will find a cosy little spot with seats, so you can talk while taking in a lovely view of Greenwich Park. If the date is going particularly well, you'll be happy to know that the area does offer enough privacy for you to be able to steal a kiss or two.
If you are the hopeless romantic type, or if your date is, this is sure to be a winner. A nice romantic walk along the Thames is about as classically romantic as it gets, especially in the evenings after a candlelight dinner. After your walk, you can have a seat and enjoy the incredible views of the river while you plan your second date. Because after this, there is sure to be one.
This is a great spot for those lazy days when the weather is perfect, but you are not in the mood to do too much. Hampstead Heath is an area in the north beside Kenwood. This is another excellent spot for a picnic, a romantic walk, or just lazing around and soaking up the summer sun.
If you are planning an entire day together but want to keep things simple, you can easily do that around Greenwich Park. There are several free museums very close by as well as a wide selection of restaurants. You'll have no problem finding an eatery to fit your budget. After a day of exploring museums, why not get some lunch, or surprise her with a packed picnic, and find a place to lay out a blanket at the park? The views are amazing and the incredible amount of space that the park covers will give you some privacy to talk and get to know each other.
