London is jam-packed full of fun activities to do with your partner, whether it’s your first date or your 100th, and you’re never far from the action in the Capital. If you’re looking for some original summer date ideas to impress your other half and make the most of the great British summertime, we’ve got you covered. Read on for our top picks for fun dates in London this year.

Watch the game outside with some food and fizz

BRGR+BUBBLES is back this summer, due to popular demand, and has popped up in the inner courtyard at our Apex Temple Court Hotel. With a big screen showing the FIFA Women’s World Cup and Wimbledon, an impressive BBQ menu to suit all tastes, and plenty of Lanson to go around, it’s the perfect date location for sports fans and champagne aficionados alike.

Challenge your partner to a game of crazy golf

There are so many cool mini golf courses in London but our favourite has to be Roof East’s Birdies Crazy Golf Club. Situated on the roof of a car park in East London, this crazy attraction is the perfect out-of-the-box place to spend a date day or night. This year, the course has a country garden theme and is ultra-Instagrammable in case you want to snap some #DateNight selfies. What’s more, you can get tickets from just £8 for adults – bargain!

Take a romantic pedalo ride

Get your comfy shoes on and take your date for a fun pedalo ride at Hyde Park this summer. What better way to make the most of the London sun than by spending a day in one of the city’s most beautiful parks? We guarantee it’ll be a date day to remember and chances are your other half hasn’t done anything like it before. Find out more here.

Enjoy wine and nibbles under a lit up pergola

If you’re looking for a chilled out spot to enjoy some wine and nibbles away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, come along to the Secret Garden; the latest al fresco pop-up from the team at Lazy Ballerinas. Unwind in the London sun as you and your partner sip and swirl on exciting wines of the world and indulge in the Society’s bespoke small plates. The grapevine pergola and botanical flower wall will make for a beautiful backdrop to your night and we guarantee it’ll impress your date!

See a movie under the stars

Not your average dinner and a movie date, Rooftop Film Club offers you the chance to enjoy a cinema experience like no other. With three locations across London including Shoreditch, Peckham and Stratford and a wide selection of films to choose from, ranging from classics to more recent hits, there’s something for everyone. You’ll never want to go back to a normal movie theatre again!
