Valentine’s Day Events in Chelsea

Valentine’s Day is almost upon us. Florists, jewellers, chocolatiers, restaurants and cocktail bars will be preparing for one of the romantic (and busiest) times of the year, with couples across the country celebrating love. Here at the Draycott, we believe that displaying affections and romantic gestures can be more than flowers, chocolates and a candlelit meal.

With this in mind, we’ve put together some Valentine’s experiences – a mix of alternative and traditional – for you to enjoy in the coming weeks, which can be just as romantic for a perfect Valentine’s Day celebration; regardless of the date.

This makes it the perfect time of year to enjoy the Chelsea Physic Garden’s spring blooms. With snowdrops and daffodils aplenty, Chelsea Physic Garden makes for an extremely romantic stroll, enjoying the beauty of spring flowers. If you can’t make the day opening, then why not attend one of their evening talks. On February 21st, they will be hosting a particularly local talk on the life and work of Sir Hans Sloane, featuring a panel of leading scholars guiding you through the life and work of this local figure. The evening costs £17.00 per person, including a free glass of wine and can be a perfect alternative for a Valentine’s celebration in stunning surroundings.
