Romantic Valentine’s Day activities inspired by the stars

Love is in the air – and you count on your favourite A-list couples to go all out when it comes to Valentine’s Day.

As well as showering them with lavish gifts, the stars love to show off their other halves in the best capital city hotspots – and you can too. London has a wonderfully romantic charm that can sweep anyone their feet, from the gorgeous floral parks for picturesque strolls, to breathtaking views over the city and must-see landmarks.

With such an endless number of romantic things to do in the capital with your other half, Celebrity Secrets will make sure that this Valentine’s Day will be an unforgettable one…

The View from the Shard

The Shard is home to some of the best offices, restaurants and hotel rooms in London – along with breathtaking views.

Whether it is watching the sunset with a cocktail in hand at one of the gorgeous bars or just sitting by the window, the gorgeous views from here will surely leave you two more in love than ever.

The Shard is also home to some of the best restaurants in London, where you could find yourself dining next to an A-list personality – like Love Island stars Molly-Mae and Tommy Fury who recently enjoyed a romantic visit.

London Eye

Whoever said that ‘love is blind’ clearly hasn’t taken their other half onto the iconic London Eye before.

See all the wonder that the capital has to offer from its own eye – while indulging in the famous champagne experience! So you can raise your glass to your sky-high romance while admiring the wondrous view with your other half.

Celebs love it too – repeat visitors include Matt Damon, Meghan Trainor, Kate Moss and Jessica Alba to name but a few.

 London Dinner Cruises

Don’t rock the boat this Valentine’s Day and make sure you book ahead to avoid any broken hearts…

Get on board a romantic dinner cruise down the Thames, starting with a champagne welcome and a sumptuous meal.

All accompanied by beautiful background music and stunning views of London, guaranteed to wow your loved one.

Globe Theatre

Shakespeare was known for some truly romantic work, and if you appreciate the intensity of his plays, The Globe is the place to be.

Take your date to watch a performance together at the famous Globe Theatre – a reconstruction of the open-air playhouse,  designed in 1599, where much of the playwright’s work was acted out.

You can also take an exhibition tour and take a chance on bumping into one of the cast at The Swan at the Globe Theatre before the performance.

Famous faces spotted before curtains up include Mark Rylance, Dame Judi Dench, Stephen Fry and Jude Law.

Helicopter tour

What could be more thrilling than gliding through the air with your significant other? Take your love to new heights with an adrenaline fuelled helicopter experience.

This is undoubtedly one of the most fun activities in London for couples – and celebs love it too.

A-lister pilots include Lord Alan Sugar, Carol Vorderman, Richard Hammond and Gisele Bündchen. But if you would rather be in the passenger seat, book your tickets here.

Express trip from London to Paris

Feel like you’ve conquered all that London has to offer? Well there’s no better place to celebrate the most romantic day of the year than in the city of love…

From gorgeous walks to candlelit dinners, there is romance oozing from every corner of the French capital.

Whisk your other half away on a rail champagne lunch, a self guided Seine cruise or take in the wonderful sights including the Eiffel Tower and Louvre Museum.

But please don’t do a GC and leave your date waiting at the platform – as shown by this classic Celebs Go Dating clip…

Oh Gemma…
