Watching a great movie can be romantic just about anywhere – but we reckon there’s something especially warming about watching a movie in the open air on the top deck of a boat after a cruise through the heart of London.

That’s what’s on offer at Time Out’s Movies on the River this summer – and not only is the experience itself seriously romantic, but there are some seriously romantic movies showing too.

Here are five of the most romantic movies playing at Movies on the River this summer. You can also explore the full lineup and all the other great movies on offer, including ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘Top Gun’, ‘Baby Driver’ and more.



This World War Two love story is a black and white romance to die for – starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. Here’s looking at you kid.
