England – London

Capital Promises Both Highbrow—and High-Octane—Romance

Take a whirl on the London Eye, climb the O2, whiz up the Thames on a high-speed boat, and marvel at views from 800 feet up in London’s tallest skyscraper, The Shard.

If you’re more Bard than Bond, take your beloved to a performance at the Globe or the theater-rich West End. Culture lovers can also stroll miles of free museums and galleries.
