Valentine's Day Weekend
13 & 14 February 2016 - 10am to Midnight
Could there be a more romantic way to experience London on Valentine’s Day than sipping on champagne whilst watching the city sparkle below?
This Valentine’s Day weekend, we will be open until midnight (last entry 11pm) on 13 and 14 February, so you can enjoy the spectacular views of London with your loved one for longer. Throughout the weekend we'll be sharing the love by giving away 12,000 mini rolls of Love Hearts!
Sunset time slots (5pm and 5.30pm) are expected to sell out quickly due to popular demand, so early booking is advised.
After being awarded the title of 'The Most Romantic View' by Mills & Boon in 2015, this year we have introduced a ‘Marriage Proposal Concierge Service’ so you can book bespoke, personalised elements to enhance your proposal.
