If you’re planning to do anything special for Valentine’s Day, you better make sure you plan ahead. Nothing kills a romantic mood more than an argument over how you’re going to spend that special day.
So I’ve done some researching and found five fun things for you to do with the one you love.
Tea Time Treat for Two
If you want to really spoil the one you love in your life, then why not treat them to afternoon tea at Harrods luxurious Georgian Restaurant.
You will be served with freshly cut sandwiches, home baked raisin scones and a selection of tea pastries from the famous Harrods Patisserie – all served with a tea of your choice.
Plus being in Harrods, means you’re in the right place for treating your Valentine to an extra special gift.
For a truly Latin experience book yourself in at Floridita. Part of your dinning experience includes complimentary Latin dance workshop from BBC’s “So you think you can Dance” star, Yanet Fuentes.
To really recreate the Latin atmosphere live music, featuring love songs and Latino rhythms, will be provided by “Cuarteto D’Gala”, who have been flown in from Cuba especially for the occasion.
They will be open for lunch & dinner this Sunday 14th February with their Valentine’s lunch menu priced at £35 and their dinner menu priced at £47.50.

If your partner is a chocoholic why don’t you treat them to a Belgian chocolate truffle making workshop. Where you will not only learn about the history of chocolate, but you will also get to create Belgian truffles by hand using raw ingredients.

Saf which means ‘Pure’ in Turkish is a Vegetarian and Vegan restaurant that also serves raw food on their menu. If you’re new to this, don’t be scared, it’s really not what you think; it’s not just a plate full of raw vegetables. It’s actually hard to really tell that your eating raw food and even the desserts are made raw too.
There are many benefits, not only can you really taste the flavours in your food, but eating raw is also helpful to your digestion.
