If you find yourself in London with your loved one on Valentine’s Day, there’s no need to worry about splurging big money on a romantic day. London offers many budget-friendly activities and spots throughout the city for visitors and locals to enjoy on Valentine’s Day.


Here’s how to spend the perfect romantic day in London while on a budget:


Romantic Strolls

Spend the morning at Kensington Palace, home of young royals for more than 300 years. A visit to the palace entails visiting Queen Victoria’s reimagined childhood rooms and the stunning King’s and Queen’s state apartments. End the trip with a walk through the palace gardens, where you’ll find the iconic Sunken Garden, featuring a statue of Diana, Princess of Wales.


See the City from Above

At Sky Garden, London’s highest public garden, visitors enjoy three stories of beautiful open space. The garden sits 35 floors high and is free to enter for those who book a slot online.


Eat Your Heart Out at These Foodie Spots

Wandering through Old Spitalfields Market means perusing the more than 40 food and drink stalls offering everything from burritos to burgers to fluffy Taiwanese pancakes. The 350-year-old site is open seven days a week.


Give Your Loved One Something Special

One of the most romantic gifts and gestures of all time, giving your loved one fresh flowers on Valentine’s Day makes the day more special. Walk through Borough Market and look for The Gated Garden, the market’s flower stall. The hardest part? Picking from an endless variety of bright bouquets and chic house plants.


Something Sweet

At night, stroll through Hyde Park to Connaught Village, where many independent stores sell great and unique gifts. The village’s Tree of Love, Joy and Hope soon unveils a lighting installation, Love is Love, in time for Valentine’s Day.
