Valentine’s Day In Kensington

Featuring tables adorned in roses, complemented by pink chairs, marble tables and even a cherry blossom tree, the interior looks to have been designed by Venus herself. Topped off with delicious red velvet cake and ruby lattes, it’s hard not to fall in love. 

Notting Hill Bookshop

The Churchill Arms

Dripping in flowers, The Churchill Arms is a picture of romance, and one of London’s most recognisable and famous pubs. Settle down for a date between the Winston Churchill memorabilia, and rake in the history of the iconic venue. Built in 1750, the pub was frequented by Churchill’s grandparents, hence the name. Nowadays, it’s known for serving up a selection of real ales and mouth-watering authentic Thai cuisine.
