Valentines Day for One

Who said that Valentine’s Day is worth celebrating only if you have a date? Not being in a relationship shouldn’t be a good reason to miss out on the most romantic day of the year. According to the latest research from The Office for National Statistics, this year the number of single people has reached its peak record with 1.65m single men and 1.27m single women in the UK. If you fear being alone, let London be your perfect date and enjoy the best events around the city and your favourite borough.



  1. Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair

Open from 11 am to 5pm with only a £4 entry fee, Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair is the best way to treat yourself to some old fashioned romance. Over 50 stalls of top quality vintage clothes and accessories, with labels including Dior, Chanel, Bill Gibb, Yves Saint Laurent, and Courrèges, will await you together with homemade cakes and live music at the Old Finsbury Town Hall.  A special ‘2 for 1’ deal is also available whether your valentine will be your partner, best friend or sister.

  1. Pyjamas Party in Caledonian Road

Drink, Shop & Do, the famous eclectic all-day café and designer store in Caledonian Road N1 9DX, is throwing an Anti-Valentine’s Day party that won’t disappoint you. With two rooms of tunes and free entry, the only you thing you will have to make sure to bring is your pyjamas or onesie for the best PJ party of the year.

  1. Eible Garden

Spend Valentine’s Day in the most environmental friendly way at the edible garden grown by locals and volunteers at Finsbury Park. With over 200 different edible plant species, the site is called Finsbury Park nursery and has been training more than 200 people in plant propagation and permaculture since 2013. Definitely an original way to spend V-day.

  1. The Pillow cinema

Grab your best friend and head to 151-155 Wimbourne St to enjoy the cosiest cinema experience ever. Guests lounge on super comfortable beanbeds with complimentary blanket for the perfect ‘night in night out’.  Who said cinema on Valentine’s Day is for couples only?
