Dating in London

Find the best singles nights, romantic restaurants and date-friendly venues in the capital

Even with eight million people to choose from, dating in London has never been simple. Setting aside the small matter of finding someone willing to spend an evening in your company, you've also got to sort out somewhere to meet your date, some kind of mentally stimulating activity and, of course, a romantic place to eat.

But don't panic. These days, the variety of weird and wonderful dating events in London (done speed dating? Try silent dating) is mind-boggling, and there are enough intimate pubs and restaurants to keep even the most prolific player busy. Go forth and mingle, people.
