Congratulations! You have survived the grey and miserable winter in London town and Spring is also on the outs! Although dating in London is fun all year round, the sun just makes it such a happier place! The work clothes are getting more colourful and people are actually smiling on the street, smiling! Bar the horrendous daily tube commute (sweltering is not sexy) the people of London are actually HAPPY! And why wouldn’t they be, it’s SUMMER TIME! Because of all the happiness floating around, London dating is at an all-time high and if you’ve met someone at one of our speed dating London events you’re now going to want to explore the sunny City together. The only issue now is where to go. No worries, we are here to help! We have come up with some brilliant summer date ideas London to keep you going until autumn.

British Summer Time
Hyde Park, London
London dating just got a whole lot more interesting; from the 3rd - 13th July, Hyde Park is being taken over by Barclay’s Summer Time Festival and some brilliant bands. If your date is a bit of a music lover or you just want to impress with something a little different, this dating London idea is a perfect option for you! They even have Mcbusted and Boy Zone booked!
Hot tip* get there early in the date and spend some time exploring the festival attractions.
