10 Great Spring Date Ideas To Do In London

It's always exciting when the clocks spring forward and all of a sudden our evenings open up with a world of opportunity. There's so many more things to do when it's 7pm and it's still day light. Whether you're newly dating, or in a relationship, we've rounded up 10 great spring date ideas for the next couple of months.

1. Rooftop Film Club

Outdoor films are no new thing anymore, but do they ever loose their novelty?! The answer is no. Starting in May, when hopefully the chilly air has disappeared, Roof Top Film Club kicks off in various roof top locations across London. Choose a movie from the classic or newbie selections. With amazing skylines, deck chairs and atmosphere, this is a top date idea.

2. Beer & Bread Festival

May day is upon us, and there is an abundance of things to do. One being, The Beer and Bread Festival with Brixton Brewery & the Brixton Windmill. If you didn't know that Brixton had a windmill, well now you do! And guess what? This year is it's 200th anniversary, and this festival is one of it's highlights. Expect beer and ... bread.

3. Gir Lion Lodge

Gir Lion Lodge is a brand new development in London Zoo, launching this Spring. It's hidden away within the Land of the Lions. Guests can stay (if they dare) in decorated lodges, with a 2 course dinner included. A date idea sure to bring out your wild sides.

4. Chiswick House

Wandering around a Stately home is quite a civilised date idea, and if you didn't know already London has quite a few. The good thing about Chiswick house is that you can wander the grounds for free. So pick a sunny day and set out for a cultured afternoon.

5. Green Man Ahoy

Green Man are re launching their boat parties and this one sets sail on the 7th of May! Ride along the Thames whilst being entertained by a curated mix of DJs and more festival fun.

7. Handel & Hendrix

One for the music lovers, Jimi Hendrix's flat has now been added to the Handel Exhibition to introduce a permanent exhibition to his former home in Mayfair. You can tour how he once lived, browse his record collections where his guitar still stands in pride of place.

8. London Coffee Festival

Unless you're in an American Diner is there such a thing as bottomless coffee anymore? Well, there is this weekend when caffeine fiends unite at London Coffee Festival. A VIP ticket gets you free coffee and food tastings, a goody bag, access to workshops and more. 

9. Secret Brunch

More like a party than a brunch, this is is an exclusive members club, in a very secret place, revealed at the very last minute. The theme is usually revealed two days before the event. A fun double date idea? Just don't expect ham and eggs.

10. Druid St. Market

A less well known market to it's neighbours, Borough and Maltby Street, Druid St Market offers the best of, "Made in London" every Saturday. With food, homewares, Artists and more, this Market is a great place to mooch with your date or partner.
