Yes, you read that right! London, a city peppered with stunning architecture, refreshing parks and exciting pubs, can now be your romantic honeymoon destination at a reasonable price! If you plan right and obtain a cheap flight booking from Delhi to London on Yatra, half the battle will be won. To make the rest of your vacation amazing yet affordable, here are some tips that might come in handy.
Best time to visit and getting around
Visiting London in the off-season like in November to February might seem unwise since it will be cold and rainy during that period, but you can actually have fun if you have the right attitude. And both flight and hotel costs will be low then. Plus, the presence of countless pubs will keep you warm! Also, avoid cabs while exploring London. Walk hand in hand and experience the quaint streets and posh roads with equal gusto. Take a stroll along the Thames or spend a day at the Hyde Park. You can also take the tube or rent bikes if you and your partner are sporty!
Reasonably priced accommodation
It is natural that you wouldn’t want to spend your honeymoon in a London hostel, no matter how cheap they are. Instead, you can look for some decent budget hotels that are located a little away from the center of the city. Start researching for them online a few months before your trip. If you can book a serviced apartment, it will be awesome, since you will get the privacy and freedom you need on a honeymoon.
Things to do for cheap
Take walking tours in London to get familiar with the city in a casual way, or visit the St. Paul’s Cathedral which is a gorgeous mix of Renaissance and Baroque architecture. Painshill Park with its stunning 18th century garden, a Chinese bridge, a lovely lake and a charming Gothic temple is also very affordable for visitors. Visit the crystal grotto to admire unique crystal formations. The South Bank is perfect for couples who love a bit of colour and liveliness in the form of restaurants, theatres and events. You can also check out the Little Venice, where you and your loved one can cruise idly on the peaceful canal waters among vibrant houseboats. If you are ready to splurge a little, then you can take a ride on the London’s Eye at a height of 135 metres and admire the city’s skyline. The fast track entry will let you enjoy some champagne as well!
Eating and drinking
London is dotted with many lively pubs and quaint cafes where you can enjoy authentic breakfasts and dinners without blowing your budget. Also check out popular pubs during happy hours. If you wish to take your sweetheart to a fancy restaurant, then the Clos Maggiore is the best bet. Decorated with beautiful cherry blossoms on the inside, this place is ideal for a romantic candlelit dinner over yummy seafood and French cuisine.
Shopping and more
No honeymoon is complete without a bit of shopping eh? But don’t worry! There are other affordable options apart from Harrods’s. Check out Zara on Bond Street, Beyond Retro on Liverpool Street, and Monki near Oxford Circus for fashionable shoes, clothes and jeans. Absolute Vintage near Shoreditch High St Overground and Muji near Convent Garden are also ideal for shopping for shoes, home goods and stationery. So, what are you waiting for? Make a cheap flight booking from Delhi to London or from other cities, and get ready for a lovey-dovey London honeymoon with your partner!
