Gaze at the stars. Spend a romantic night watching the stars from the Royal Observatory in Greenwich. You can spend the day at the planetarium and then observe the night unfolding under your eyes. We tend to forget that the stars are in the sky in a big city like London. Get away from all the lights and lose yourself in space.

Quirkyalone Day. You don’t have to be in a relationship to enjoy Valentine’s Day. You don’t have to hide away, you can celebrate International Quirkyalone Day. It is a do-it-yourself celebration of romance, friendship, and independence. It is not anti-Valientine’s Day, but rather an alternative. It is also a celebration for those in relationships, reminding us of our individuality and self-love. This idea came from Sasha Cagen’s book Quirkyalone: A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics. A day to celebrate the things you love to do alone and with friends. Different ideas include hosting a dinner party, taking a long walk without phones or interruptions, exploring a new part of town, you decide.
Enjoy a special Valentine’s Day
