The Coca-Cola London Eye Advance Ticket Champagne Experience
- Date: Valentine’s Weekend
- Venue: London Eye
Yes, it’s a bit over the top for Valentine’s Weekend but what a great surprise for someone to be treated with a great view of the Thames and a little bit of the bubbly thrown in for good measure.
The Champagne experience has to be booked online in advance as demand is high and will be higher in the lead up to Valentine’s weekend. You can check availability here.
Cirque Du Soleil LUZIA
- Date: Throughout February
- Venue: Royal Albert Hall
Midway through their three-month residency at the Royal Albert Hall, Cirque Du Soleil LUZIA is a dazzling show that transports you from SW7 to a re-imagined Mexico.
If you haven’t been to a Cirque Du Soleil performance before, this is a great starting point as you’ll be wowed by the visuals and acrobatics.
Kimono: Kyoto to Catwalk
- Date: 29th February
- Venue: V&A
An exhibition that runs through most of the spring but only opens at the very end of this month (don’t forget 2020 is a leap year), Kimono: Kyoto to Catwalk is an exhibition taking you through the history of one of the most well-known but misunderstood garments.
Full information can be found on the V&A website here.
- Date: 25th February
- Venue: Across London
Not an official holiday but the perfect excuse for anyone to treat themselves at the end of the month, Pancake day falls on the last Tuesday of the month. There will be a lot of cafes putting on special dishes throughout the day, but some of the best cafes to visit on the day if you have a sweet tooth, in Kensington and a little further afield, include:
- Café Tarte
- Cafe Phillies
- Coco Momo
- Borough Market (expect a lot of Pancake Day specials there)
