Places in London to Meet Single Women

Updated July 20, 2017

If you're a single man in London, you may be wondering where all the single women are. Of course, there's an excess of nightclubs heaving with women---as well as men---in the British capital. However, there are some other places you can go where the odds may be skewed in your favour and the women greatly outnumber the men.

Cultural Attractions

You won't have to look hard to find a museum in London. They are almost as common as pubs. Since women love men with intelligence, these are great places to exhibit your brainpower. For example, stop by the National Portrait Gallery. Founded in 1856, it houses around 10,000 works of portraiture. The top floors display historical figures from centuries long past, so stick to the ground floor, where contemporary people are featured. Not only will it be easy to start a conversation with women (simply discuss who's who on the walls), but also admission is free.

Afternoon Teas

This beloved English tradition is enjoyed by women of all ages. They usually go in groups to chat and savour delicious sandwiches, pastries and scones---along with tea and champagne. Two of the finest afternoon tea experiences to be had in London are offered by The Ritz London and Claridge's hotels. Held in elegant settings that often feature live music, the food is simply divine. Men, take care to dress smartly and comfortably as you may need to loosen your belt.

Shopping Destinations

Women love to shop, and in London Oxford Street is a mecca for shoppers. It's home not only to several colossal department stores, but also to many famous designer boutiques. Two good places for men to scope out are Selfridges & Co. and John Lewis. Both of these department stores rank high among trendy women who are updating their wardrobes. If a woman catches your eye, you'll make a great first impression by offering to carry her bags.

Nightclubs

London's nightclubs are always a spot to connect with single women. One of the most popular clubs is Fabric London, a veritable superclub that contains three dance floors. Or, try out a favourite hot spot of Prince Harry---Beach Blanket Babylon, which is located in the Notting Hill area. This opulent bar housed in a Georgian mansion boasts a glamorous vibe along with an exotic array of cocktails.
