Being in love shouldn’t mean you have to pay a fortune on Valentine’s Day. In fact we have some ideas for you and your other half that will not cost you a penny. Enjoy and love:
start the weekend on Friday by visiting the London Ice Sculpting Festival 2014. Watch from 12 noon ice sculptors participating in competitions and try yourself (from 4pm to 8pm) to ice sculpt by attending 20-minute masterclasses (children must be 12+ to participate). All for free! On Saturday the Festival is open between 10am and 7pm and on Sunday from 12 noon to 6pm. Time to take some amazing pictures or video with your camera and impress yourself and your friends!
- PLUS the daily free, one-hour guided tours (11.30am & 2.30pm + 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays) of the National Gallery (highly recommended); on Fridays there is an extra, late, 7pm tour (the gallery closes at 9pm); a great way to spend your evening!
- If you haven’t done it before register online (before 6pm on Friday – one-off procedure) at parkrun and participate on Saturday at 9am. Parkrun is a free, 5K timed runs in various (42 so far!) parks in London (Brockwell, Crystal Palace, Finsbury, Richmond etc.) & the UK. Even if you don’t register you can still take part in the parkrun though your name will not be included in the results.
Have an exciting weekend!
