My favourite place for a summer date in London is Battersea Park – London’s prettiest park (in my humble opinion).
I love heading there with my boyfriend and a picnic.
Start the day with a wander through one of the seven markets, conversation guaranteed while you’re browsing the fabulous antique shops, unique clothing stores and stalls selling quirky one offs unique to the market.
When you’re all shopped out, pit stop in the West Yard for some street food, which is fast becoming one of the go-to food markets of Europe, then while away the afternoon with a cold beer by the canal before the funky beats start at one of Camden’s infamous nightlife hotspots.
You’ll have a multitude of choices – whether you’re driving over for a daytime jaunt, or leaving the car at the hotel when you head out into the night.
Meander along the towpath until you stumble across Petersham Nurseries for a Michelin star quality lunch, amongst garden pots bursting with colour that will bring out the Mellors and Lady Chatterley amongst you.And if you get bored just lounging around and chatting, there’s always a 9-hole mini golf course to take on.For a weekend date in the sun, head out to Richmond. I took advantage of my tipsy state to announce that we needed to meet. The last time I shaved my legs there were leaves on the trees. I wasn’t about to rock up at his flat in the middle of the night. Select a trail, and set off around the capital with your date.There are multiple-choice questions along the way – so you can either work together as a team, or tackle the same trail on separate phones and introduce a bit of competition to your afternoon!Whether you’re single or in a relationship, summer is hands down the best time of year to go on a date in London.The city is host to hundreds of different options for date night, both inside and out.Then, before the sun starts to go down, we’ll walk over to the boating lake and hire a pedal boat for half an hour.By then we’re usually ready for a drink so we head to the nearby Magic Garden for live music and some outdoor drinking. Although there are tons of London rooftops that come out of hibernation for the summer, when it comes to taking someone on a date, Roof East in Stratford is definitely my favourite.
