I don’t normally write posts surrounding dating, simply because I’m not very interesting when it comes to it. My go to date is normally just a simple drinks or coffee. Recently, however, I stumbled across a website that opened my eyes to a more adventurous side of dating.
That website is TwentySomething London. This fantastic website is a collection of all the wonderful independent London-based events, places and “general quirky happenings.”
As I was browsing through their website, I realised some of the events would actually make rather good first dates. So read on for my round up of perfect places to kickstart your London loving…
1. Giant Twister on the Shard
Twister with a 360 vista of the beautiful city and a rum punch thrown in for good measure? Yes please. Find out more here.
2. #OnTheRoof – Sunday Rooftop Cinema
Gone are the days of awkward cinema dates and the classic hand over the shoulder move. Independent company Press Play are back for summer, inhabiting a rooftop in Fulham with their big screen. Free popcorn, comfy beanbags, champagne ice popsicles & BBQs sound like the perfect setting for a fun first date. Find out more here.
3. Wednesday Summer Sessions
