Most popular areas in London for romantic hotels

Move over Paris, London's got plenty of uber-romantic districts that will tug at your heart strings. With haute restaurants and luxury spas aplenty, Knightsbridge can be a top spot to look. Its 5-star offerings mean you'll rarely be short of a champagne flute, while a location close to Hyde Park puts languorous evening strolls on the menu. Then comes Marylebone. Surrounded by fine-dining bistros, the classy accommodation there is a catalyst for candlelit dinners out. Covent Garden is also an option, especially if you want to add some retail therapy to the mix – a new ring, perhaps?

Top romantic hotels in London

Bubbling hot tubs, a private indoor pool and a whole fine-dining medley at your fingertips courtesy of room service mean you might not ever need to leave the Grange St. Paul's. It's housed in the heart of the City, but is so relaxing inside it doesn't really feel like it. To pack the honeymoon full of culture, the Mondrian London is a fine choice – the Royal National Theatre is right next door. Another option further along the meanders of the Thames is the InterContinental London at the O2. Sumptuous breakfast buffets and an uber-swish spa combine there to keep things classy.

Where to find the best romantic restaurants in London

Brimming with Michelin-star bistros run by celebrity chefs, Mayfair might not come cheap. Still, a flurry of the tastiest Italian, French and creative British haute cuisine should make up for the bill. Dining with a view could also be an option. Southwark's great for that. There are acclaimed eateries aplenty in the soaring skyscrapers that pop up along the Thames. Finally, a trip to Soho could be in order. The meals there often come with a side of soft live jazz or an aperitif of meticulously-made cocktails.

If you're loosening the purse strings to bag the most romantic hotels in London, then you can also turn that city break into something seriously special. A helicopter flyover of the soaring Shard is sure to raise some goose bumps, while a champagne lunch on a luxury yacht is an option for those who prefer to stay on solid ground. You don't need to spend loads, either. A Hyde Park picnic made from the local produce of Borough Market could also go a long way, while an evening show in the theatres of the West End is a classic.
