We organise the most popular dating events in London. Hundreds of people join us for each party and, with the help of our unique icebreaker formula, countless connections are made that lead to many, many dates and from there dozens of relationships begin. 

If you're single in London and you don't want to be - don't reach for the online dating sites and swipe apps - they simply do not work. Join us, and hundreds of other people at one of our hugely successful parties. They take place across London every few weeks throughout the year. 

Here's some shots taken at our recent Christmas Party to give you a flavour of what to expect. Over 300 people joined us at this party and we had a perfect 50:50 male to female ratio. We provide a fun and highly effective icebreaker and the rest happens all by itself. Dating can only really happen offline so why not start in the real world.

Check out our event listings for the next one and book your place, you won't be disappointed!

Meeting people in London is easy when you just know where to look.



The beauty of Speed Dating London lies in its no-nonsense approach. You take an equal number of single girls and guys, put them in a room and give them a few minutes to chat with every other member of the opposite sex.

When you get there

Original speed dating events in London normally begin at 7.30pm. You will need to register with our hosts and to begin with they will issue you with a score sheet. This will help you to keep track of the singles that you would like to meet again and perhaps go on a date with. After a short period of mingling, your host for the evening who will run through detailed instructions and give you your starting position if you are a guy or table for the event if you are a girl.

Meet & Mingle

A London speed dating event is split into two halves, each lasting around an hour, there will be an interval at half time of about 15 minutes for speed dating London. You will have between 4 and 5 minutes with each person, after which you need to tick a box on your score sheet - "yes, I would like to meet this person again" or "no. Thanks but no thanks". Or "friend" if you'd like to get to know them platonically. Make sure that you do this after each date to keep track. Afterwards there is an opportunity for everyone to meet and mingle informally - this is often where the real action begins, so make sure you don't disappear too quickly!

Complete your score sheet

After the event you simply tick who you liked on the Original Dating website and the site works about your matches automatically. If the dates you have ticked as a "yes" have reciprocated you have a match. You will be able to view the first names and message them via our site online without revealing your email address until you are ready to. You'll be having proper first dates in no time.
