Top ten water themed dates

What else can you do when the temperature hits the 30's than make straight for the water.

This week we bring you London's top ten water themed dates to keep you cool and your relationship hot...

Pure genius. You get to race up and down the Thames in a fat rib with a comedian as a guide. London's most exhilarating date is straight in at number one.

Bit of a spenny one, as you need to buy a 'Spa day' to get in, but this is perhaps the most glamorous way of spending a sunny day, poolside.

This scenic stroll has got romance written all over it. Wander through Camden Lock market and marvel at the crazy home boats of Little Venice. Perhaps a half way picnic (with a view) on Primrose Hill?

We've harped on about this one before. Pick a sunny day and head to Hyde Park for a paddle. Nothing better.

Bit of a curve ball this one, but a fantastic date none the less. It's in a top spot, right next to the London Eye, and if you've never been, you really must. There are sharks and everything.

Wakeboarding and waterskiing in London. Cool.

A staple of London's watery heritage, you're sure to find a lido near you. The oldest and the best (in our opinion) is the wonderful Serpentine Lido - fancy a dip?

It's a restaurant on a boat. Brilliant. On a sunny day you can dine on the deck and admire this lovely city whilst you sip on some Sauvignon. Mmmmmmm.

Head down to the grassy banks of Richmond and hire a rowing boat for two. Messing about in boats, Wind in the Willows style - Ratty would be proud.

One for the ladies, one for the men and one for both. Hmmmm, I wonder....


  1. Hi Mary, I've just booked the London rib trip for the BF's birthday. He's going to love it. And I saw it on the Great Date Guide first!
    Thanks for that. Cx

  2. So pleased to be of service... ;)

  3. How about when you first meet your date you dump a pitcher of ice cold water on her?

    If she has a sense of humor she'll be back, right?
