How to plan a honeymoon in London

Planning the perfect honeymoon is made a lot easier when you can find a location that offers plenty to do and an abundance of romantic surroundings.

Around 20 million people visit London each year, and it has all the ingredients to provide an ideal getaway post-nuptials.

If you’re yet to nail down where you’re going to go on your honeymoon, here are some reasons why the British capital can fit the bill.

Why choose London for a honeymoon?

There are many types of honeymoon that people opt for: romantic city break, escape to nature, coastal visit, and cultural discovery.

The beauty of London is that you can pretty much roll them all into one!

With a whopping 74 Michelin-starred restaurants in the city, there’s no shortage of fine-dining experiences to enjoy. The River Thames offers the chance for romantic walks by the water or a cosy cruise on it!

With a vast number of art galleries, museums and theatres, you can get your culture fix, while major sporting venues in football, cricket, tennis and rugby also provide destinations for fanatics.

Lush green parks offer a chance to connect with nature, while national parks, areas of outstanding natural beauty and beach resorts are also easily reached via public transport.

Getting around the city

With so much to do, it’s handy that London provides so many ways to get around the city.

Comprehensive public transport includes bus routes, the Underground and other similar services. Planning your excursions well in advance means you may be able to take advantage of cheap train tickets to London and the surrounding areas.

There are also options that involve a gentler pace, such as a system of 12,000 rentable bikes available 365 days a year stationed across the city.

Where to stay

While budget always plays a role – especially in a city as notorious for its prices as London – this is a special break that deserves a base to match.

To make things all the more memorable, consider a spot on the Thames for quaint riverside views or opt for an apartment to make things that little bit more private for the two of you.

If you don’t want to stay in the heart of the action, north London offers panoramic scenery from Hampstead, west London holds the keys to some of the capital’s most opulent neighbourhoods and heading south or east may be preferable for younger couples in search of lively nightlife.
