Hilton London Bankside
Enjoy the romantic celebration of Valentine’s Day at London’s Hilton Bankside .

For Valentine’s Day, a bespoke cocktail has been created; Mystery of Maca – which includes strawberry and vanilla Rinomato Aperitivo Deciso, Maca Lapsang Souchong tea syrup and Maison Sassy Cidre Rosé.
The Rooftop St. James
Take in an alternative – but equally as impressive – view of London’s skyline this Valentine’s Day and celebrate at the Rooftop St. James. Cheers with a glass of Veuve Clicquot Rosé on arrival and enjoy a three-course meal. Special performances will also take place on Valentine’s Day, so you can enjoy the musical stylings of three-piece band Wandering Soul and solo singer Rob Lamont – who will perform on 15th February.
