With Valentine’s Day still fresh in our minds (and hearts!) Team PENSON came together to think up some of the best suggestions for this weekend – regardless if you’re GALentines, PALentines, or Valentines -ing, take a peak at what’s on in London this weekend…

London Fashion Week Festival:


First up – London Fashion Week. Grab your friends and go check out the hottest new looks coming this year… be sure to get your tickets first though! Or just camp out and snap some of the insane street style on show…

Cycle Speed Dating:


London is full of bike-fanatics and cycle-o-holics, so pedal on down to Look Mum No Hands! (We’ve previously raved about them… but that’s another story!) and settle in for a night of speed dating…

Brick Wonders:


A perfect date for those who are children at heart, the Brick Wonders exhibition at the Horniman Museum is a must see! With over 50 models to explore, this incredible display is made using half a million Lego bricks! So if your loved one can’t quite afford taking you on an incredible round the world trip this valentine’s day, this is a solid second!

Home, I’m Darling:


Laura Wade’s witty new play ‘Home, I’m Darling’ featuring Katherine Parkinson is a cutting comedy currently showing at the Duke of York’s Theatre. For those looking to soak up some culture this weekend, this is the perfect date…

A Week With Marilyn:


Never before seen prints of Marilyn Monroe make for the perfect weekend trip to the Galerie Prints in Wimbledon this weekend… the glamorous blonde bombshell gets a new lease of life in Ed Feingersh’s candid prints detailing a week of her day to day life… while you’re down there, maybe make it a day and head over to Richmond park for a romantic picnic?

The Luna Cinema Natural History Museum:


This has got to be at the top of any Londoner’s bucket list… watching a film beneath the iconic blue whale skeleton in the Natural History museum! From Pretty Woman, to Thelma & Louise, there’s something for everyone this weekend at the pop up Luna Cinema… so grab some snacks and head on down for the ultimate movie night date!

London Classic Car Show:


If fashion, Lego, Movie nights and speed dating aren’t quite up your alley, the London Classic Car Show is back with a bang, as they celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Italian Job… to continue the Italian theme, head to Pepenero for a classy Italian dinner…
