February events in London

February in London can be a bit chilly, and the tourist attractions get busy mid-month when the school’s break-up for a week. But those dark and frosty evenings make it a great time for walking through the bright lights of the West End. Maybe you can treat your partner to a meal and a show on Valentine’s Day?
