Why not combine your weekend-shopping in London, with a weekend of LOVE with your Superman?
London is much more than fancy boutiques and shopping, even for the fashionistas. While London might not be considered the city of love worldwide, its scenery is most certainly romantic. London is the location of many historic and modern-day love stories: Notting Hill, Love Actually, Bridget Jones Diary, Sons and Lovers and The End of the Affair. And this is the land of Jane Austen and Richard Curtis. They gave the world Romeo and Juliet, Elizabeth and Darcy, Lady Mary and Matthew and Will and Kate. London’s lifestyle also lends itself to some romantic tales and dates – afternoon teas, strolls in the park, museum dates, walks by the river and cosy pub - all of which make the beautiful British capital the perfect spot for a little romance.
And this spring Prins Harry weds his American beauty, and actress Megan Markle. Europe is longing for a love story, and this romance has everything. A playboy prince and the son of Princess Diana in love with a divorced American, award winning actress.
No need to say more, LOVE is in the air in London.
