Things to Do in London If You’re Single on Valentine’s Day

Posted February 9th, 2017 by simon brigg    No Comments

That fluffy, lovey dovey day of the year is just around the corner. A day when couples can’t keep their hands off each other whilst making goo-goo eyes.

Bars start offering two-for-one deals on romance-themed cocktails, cinemas begin featuring more rom-coms than is necessary, and supermarket shelves are overflowing with red, pink, black and white covered chocolate boxes. It can get all too much, especially for those of us not in a LTR.

But what can we do on 14th February in London as singletons? Plenty! See below for some great ways spend this Valentine’s.

We’ll start of by saying… Mates are just as good as dates (in some cases, better).

Come on down to one of our three locations and enjoy an evening of mouth-watering Memphis BBQ. You’ll be able to wash down some great pulled pork with our Valentine’s inspired cocktail bowls.


Galactic Love Valentine’s Ball @ The Vaults, Leake Street, Waterloo, Friday 10 February 2017 and Saturday 11 February 2017

Dance away the heartache (or lack of) for two nights of mischief with live bands, hot DJs, outrageous performers, dating games, and face painting. These nights at The Vaults are the perfect ‘big one’ for you and some mates.


Love & Buggery: Valentines Spesh @ The Glory, Hoxton, Tuesday 14th February

Miss Craig and Neil Prince present a night of candle light and power ballads sung by drag queens at this now legendary venue. An unashamedly trampy campy romantic evening is instore and, best of all, it’s free!


Romance is Dead @ The Tower of London, Tower Hill, Monday 13th February

Join an anti-Valentine sketching special, dedicated to those who died at the Tower in the name of love. Explore Henry VIII’s doomed love affair with Anne Boleyn. Sketch period costumed models as they pose as the doomed lovers’ ghosts at the site of Anne’s burial. Tragic love, history, art and the spooky come together at this event.


TimeOut Silent Disco @ The Cutty Sark Studio Theatre, Greenwich

Dance the night away underneath world famous Cutty Sark at TimeOut’s legendary Silent Disco. Take in the nautical history around you before popping on some headphones and getting into the groove. Dance to the sounds of the resident DJs across three channels letting you choose what you listen and dance too. You can get down to Drake whilst your friend shimmies to Katy Perry.


LUMINOCITY @Canary Wharf ice rink, Canary Wharf, until Saturday 25th February

Glide gracefully (or not) across ice at Canary Wharf’s great ice rink.

Think you’ve done ice rinks before? Think again. This ice rink is like no other as it has over 8km of LED lights beneath the ice, making this skating experience unique.
