Keeping the Romance Alive

Explore the city’s architecture and local sites while visiting Market Square and Belfry tower.

Let the true romantics enjoy a medieval escape.
Going With Tradition
Bespoke Stationary with Barnard & Westwood
For those with more of a taste for tradition, give the experience of creating bespoke stationery at century-old Barnard & Westwood, for a unique 1st anniversary gift.
The customary first anniversary gift of paper takes a new twist when the time-honoured technique of die-stamping is used to make 200 pieces of bespoke stationery. Before getting any hands dirty, enjoy a private tour around the historic printing workshop.
Then, three notebooks will be personalised and available to take home. A personalised consultation will occur where the details of the stationery will be finalised. The gift will include letterhead paper, tissue-lined envelopes and correspondence cards. The bespoke stationery will be delivered in a Barnard and Westwood box.
With Contemporary Taste
Lunch at Dabbous
A food-loving couple will have a lunch to remember when they arrive at London’s fashionable and modern restaurant, Dabbous.
Celebrate a first anniversary with four courses of a seasonal menu, while enjoying Dabbous’s simple, refined and contemporary design. The elegant and unique dishes achieved a Michelin star in Dabbous’s first year. After enjoying this lunch-for-two, the couple can explore the basement where they will find the famous Oskar’s Bar.
