Find the Perfect Gift at Laura Lee
What could be more exciting than an exquisite piece of jewellery come February 14th? And we think you will find something very special at the Laura Lee boutique in Covent Garden’s Monmouth Street. Her beautifully intricate and carefully crafted jewellery collections are worn by celebrities and fashionistas alike.

Afternoon Tea at The Orangery
Stroll hand in hand and look for the first signs of spring in Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. Set in 350 acres, it is also one of London’s most grand and historic parks – it was once the hunting ground of King Henry VIII. In modern times, it is known the world over for its stunning vistas, horse trails and popular attractions. For that perfect Valentine’s Day stroll we recommend heading over to the Serpentine Lake, and then you might like to pop into the Serpentine Gallery for a wander around the latest art exhibitions. Why not cap off the experience by warming up with breakfast, lunch or the classic afternoon tea at the ever so romantic Orangery at Kensington Palace?
Delicious Chocolate Treats at Rococo
London has some of the finest chocolatiers, and we think a box of luxury chocolates has the potential to make anyone’s Valentine’s Day a little sweeter If you’re looking for high-end, luxury chocolate with the most stunning range of flavors, look no further that Rococo Chocolates. Rococo founder, Chantal Coady, has been selling her artisan confections since 1983 with her first store opening on London’s fashionable King’s Road in Chelsea. Since then, Rococo has risen to become one of the most sought-after, luxury chocolatiers. For Valentine’s Day they have a wonderful selection of treats, including their hand-painted chocolate polka dot hearts, popping heart Marc du Champagne ganaches and their delicious organic milk chocolate rose wafers. Rococo Chocolates have stores located throughout London, including Belgravia, Marylebone and Chelsea.
A Perfect Posy at Wild at Heart
A beautiful bouquet of flowers is always a lovely touch on a romantic day, and the most fashionable arrangements in London can be found at Wild at Heart. Using seasonal selections of the most stunning blooms, these carefully crafted bouquets would make a gorgeous focal point in any home. On a personal note, we love their store on Turquoise Island in Westbourne Grove as it is always a great place to pick up the freshest stems and the prettiest flowers you could find! However, you can also find Wild at Heart at Liberty department store and Pimlico Road south of Sloane Square in Chelsea.
A Table for Two at Clos Maggiore
Clos Maggiore has been awarded “London’s most romantic restaurant” and it’s easy to see why! This intimate restaurant, situated in the heart of Covent Garden is a haven of tranquility and refined service. This restaurant arguably has the most romantic conservatory in all of London with the most delightful hanging blossom and beautiful fireplace – it is a cosy, intimate and elegant dining experience. The restaurant itself is just as lovely and although the conservatory is much in-demand, we think the main dining areas are perfect for that special Valentine’s Day meal. The Provencal-inspired cuisine, courtesy of Chef Marcellin Marc, is a dining experience to remember.
