Spring is the season when the UK’s cities burst into glorious technicolour life. Spring in London is a vibrant, exciting time. Here are Elect Club’s favourite springtime date ideas in the nation’s capital.

Visit London’s Royal Parks

London is home to stunning, royal parks and spring is when they truly come alive. From Hyde Park to Regents Park, why not spend time in these peaceful retreats with your date? Take a leisurely stroll among cherry blossoms in bloom. Stop for coffee and croissants or take a picnic. At Elect Club, our favourite spot is Kew Gardens. Kew is a sensory delight! This botanical paradise bursts into life during the spring months. Enjoy one of the most diverse collections of plants in the world and celebrate the beauty of the season of renewal.

Explore the city’s flower markets

London’s flower markets are a real treat for the senses. Head to Columbia Road Flower Market in East London on a bright Sunday morning to experience vibrant colours, gorgeous scents and a bustling vibe. Share brunch at a trendy nearby eatery.

Take a cruise along the Thames

Enjoy the city from the water by taking a scenic cruise along the River Thames. You’ll see iconic landmarks such as the Tower Bridge, The London Eye, and the Houses of Parliament. Look out for romantic, springtime packages, including a scrumptious afternoon tea or sunset cruise to add an extra buzz to your date.

Attend a spring festival

From the Holi Festival in March to the Chelsea Flower Show in May, there is always something happening in London at this time of year. Celebrate art, culture, food, music, and fashion with your date by immersing yourself in the wonderful atmosphere of the city in springtime!
