Museums: What is the fun of going to a museum with someone who is obviously not as interesting as an animatronic model of a T-Rex? Explore the city’s numerous museums by yourself this Valentine’s Day without the distraction of a partner. London is renowned for its museums and for good reason, whether you are looking for the Rosetta Stone, an Egyptian Clay Mouse, or a mural of Saddam Hussein, there is a museum to satisfy most (if not all) of your curiosities:


Nature: Forget people and be at one with nature (kind of). Natural beauty may not be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of London- arguably one big sprawling concrete jungle. The capital city certainly does however, have its fair share of spots to break away from the industrial setting and reconnect with nature. Here are just some options to choose from:


Shop: I mean, come on, it is London we are talking about here. Take your pick between Bond Street’s high-end fashion or Brick Lane’s thrift stores (or both!). London has great places to shop regardless of budget or taste. Go and spend your hard-earned money on yourself this Valentine’s Day without having to worry about silly gifts and expensive gestures for someone you do not even know if you love! Here is a list of some places where you can enjoy some well deserved retail therapy:
