Afternoon Tea at the Chiswick HouseEmily and Jef's 1-on-1 date got off to a rocky start at the Chiswick House, but chances are you'll have a much better time sharing afternoon tea at the magnificent estate without Jean, their etiquette coach, hovering over you. 960 1280
London EyeThe 2 capped off the night by sharing dessert onboard the London Eye. Visitors can hire private capsules to take in the stunning skyline, too, but if you opt for the Cupid's Capsule, let’s hope you enjoy the champagne and truffles more than Emily and Jef -- who left their dessert untouched. 960 1280
