Place: Hyde Park
Stuart: Since we both share a passion for music, and the park has been our musical playground for a number of amazing festivals & gigs, this would be the place I'd want to kiss you. It’s in that moment when the sun is setting and the crowd is singing in chorus to our favourite tune that I realise I get to share this experience with the best person in my world...you!

Place: Alexandra Palace Farmers' Market
Janine: Remember when we discovered this little gem? It was weeks after we moved to London, the first welcome to our new neighbourhood. It’s the place that reminds me of our mutual love for the city and the times we spent in awe of its magical views –a perfect place to kiss you.
Location: (51.514481, -0.136746)
Stuart: It’s a piece of home; NFL on TV, delicious ribs on offer & root bear on tap - perfect! It’s also been the place we’ve spent the last 7 years celebrating Thanksgiving together- a special date in the diary that grants us the comforts of home and reminds us we have each other in this sometimes hectic city.

Place: Golden Jubilee Footbridge
Stuart: This is an obvious one! The number of times we cross this footbridge and the view at night is striking, the lights from the Parliament Buildings and London Eye bouncing off the Thames. It’s always in that moment that we remember how lucky we are to live in this remarkable city and share in this incredible journey. It makes me fall in love with you and the city all over again.
Location: (51.590398, -0.139372)
Place: Grosvenor Gardens Bus Stop
Stuart: It’s a place that we’ve shared so many emotions over the last 7 years - sad farewells to family, friends & each other, disagreements over trivial and not so trivial life dramas, but most importantly the excitement we shared over the start of new & memorable adventures.

Place: Bloomsbury Farmers' Market
Janine: I want to kiss you here because we spent much of our early years in London in the Bloomsbury area, mainly because of its beautiful green spaces, and array of cultural buildings. We always had such great days out at the Saturday market....
Location: (51.525111, -0.124600)
Place: Scoob Books
Janine: ...indulging in delicious foods, popping into Scoob Books for a browse or seeing a late afternoon film at the Renoir. So many happy memories I have here with you –we should go back soon!

Place: London Zoo (in front of anteater)
Stuart: Our day at the London Zoo was one of those special days where everything was perfect... we didn't have a care in
the world. After all the years we've been together, it makes me happy to know we are still living carefree, having fun and making each other laugh!
Location: (51.541688, -0.102022)
Place: Upper Street, Angel (outside Islington Town Hall)
Janine: Because it's one of our favourite places in London - I want to kiss you here! I always love our weekend strolls along Upper Street, browsing the shops, sitting for long lunches, watching the world go by. One day a kiss in front of Islington Town Hall would be most appropriate –I’ll be in a wedding dress and you’ll be in a tux – the perfect place we always joke! ;)
Location: (51.588512, -0.163802)
Place: Phoenix Cinema, East Finchley
Stuart: Because it’s our favourite cinema in London, because we’ve spent many birthdays, date nights and weekends watching films together, because we always have great conversations afterwards, but mostly because you share in my passion for film and I love you for that!

Place: Our old flat in Muswell Hill
Janine: It’s the place we called home for 7 1/2 years, it’s the space we had our most ups and downs, our most uplifting and crushing moments. It’s the place we celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, and all the exciting news from home. It’s where you made me feel safe and supported when I was at my lowest and shared in the despair of loss. Although it was a small space, our little flat was filled with loads of memories I will never forget. Best place to kiss you hands down!

Place: Our new flat in Finchley
