A little daily dose of romance is a good thing… and the lights and the water never fails to seduce. Valentine’s Day or not – it’s a great spot for some dinner and a walk. Or a quick drink between office and house. There is no way to escape the sea in this city – it is everywhere, in the economy, in the history, in the culture. In the Barbican area – the cobbled streets and landmarks provide a low-key, calm, charming atmosphere – with little asides abundant (on those steps, the pilgrims left for the new world on the Mayflower). Also, great vibe in the pubs.
