Some couples are looking for lazy days on the beach and sundowner cocktails from their honeymoon, while others want something a little different. If you’re a couple who’d like a honeymoon with a more cosmopolitan feel, consider the world famous sites of London. This capital city has something to offer any newlywed.

When To Go?

You won’t be surprised to hear that no time of year is going to guarantee you sunshine in London. However, travel sometime between June and September and you could be in for a lucky few sunny days- while they’re few and far between, summer days in London are a sight to behold. If you do manage to catch the sunshine, hit Hyde Park with a picnic and watch the Brits revel in the warmth.

Historical Sights

History loving couples will love the rich cultural heritage of this amazing city. London has some of the best museums in the world, as well as many historical landmarks.

Visit the exciting Tower of London to soak up the gorier side of British history, and see the sparkling royal Crown Jewels in person. Then head to the British Museum to see some real life mummies, and Westminster Abbey to take in the incredible gothic architecture and pay homage to the many famous names who are buried there. And of course, don’t forget to go visit Her Royal Highness herself at Buckingham Palace, where you can watch the changing of the guards.

Take Tea

No visit to London is complete without experiencing the great tradition of high tea. Do it in style at The Ritz, where you’ll experience opulence and tinkling piano tunes while you enjoy tiny sandwiches, incredible cakes and all the jam and cream you could wish for. Just don’t forget to dress up, or you won’t be allowed in.

Where To Stay?

It’s your honeymoon, so splash out on all the luxury that London has to offer. The world famous Savoy Hotel will give you the ultimate romantic experience, complete with beautiful suites, Art Deco style and some of the best food in the city.
