Whether you are a Valentine's Day believer or not, there's no denying that having the chance to treat your other half is something special. If you want to celebrate this day with your partner, why not push the boat out and make it one to remember?

If you are planning a romantic weekend away in London for the occasion, or just to spoil your other half, there's plenty for you to see and do. From the typically loved-up activities, to date nights with a difference, you can find exactly what you're looking for in this incredible city.

Enjoy romantic views over London with someone special at The Shard while sipping champagne and indulging in chocolates. That's not all at The Shard, enjoy the pop up screening of the class love story, Dirty Dancing, and feel the magic of the film with a backdrop of sparkling London.

If you'd rather enjoy the lights of London outdoors, why not take a walk through Chiswick House Gardens? The Magical Lantern Festival at Chiswick House Garden is a visually spectacular installation of beautifully sculpted life-size and giant lanterns. They are designed in various forms, from animals and birds, to buildings and abstract lantern designs of all shapes and sizes.  

If you're looking for a culture fix, Kensington boasts three incredible world-class museums; the V&A, Science Museum and Natural History Museum. Between them, there is a wide and varied list of exhibitions and events all year round so you can be sure to find something to entertain you and your other half.

For something a little more relaxed, why not explore Kensington Palace and Gardens? Brimming with romance, the idyllic atmosphere is the perfect place to spend the day with your partner. You can enjoy afternoon tea at the Palace or perhaps pack a picnic and enjoy it together in the Gardens.

To walk off your lunch, head to Kensington High Street where you'll soon discover many well-loved brands. Explore a little further and you'll find a range of boutique and independent shops, as well as a variety of high-class restaurants serving the finest cuisine.

Treat a loved one this Valentine's Day with a cocktail and a delightful 4-course meal with 5-star service for only £45 per person at Park Terrace Restaurant. Start your evening with our specially created cocktail, "Aphrodite's Kiss", and enjoy a lavish meal from our menu, finishing with a selection of cheeses from Neal's Yard. Available for dinner on the 14 February only.

At the Royal Garden Hotel, we pride ourselves in going the extra mile to make sure you feel at home from the moment you walk through our doors. To mark Valentine's Day, we've created a fantastic  Valentine's Package, which includes a bottle of champagne, chocolate truffles and a full English breakfast. Available to book for stays from 10 to 18 February 2017.
