About the event

Do you love nothing more than packing your bags and jetting off on far-flung adventures? Do you yearn to visit new places and live new experiences in far-flung lands? You, my friend, have the travel bug and we can introduce you to people that share your passion.

Speed dating is a great way to meet new people, but sharing a mutual interest is the perfect ice breaker to get the conversation started.

Travel broadens the mind, and now, thanks to Original Dating, it broadens the possibility of meeting people just like you.

This event brings together up to 40 people who share your appetite for adventure. Whether it’s the Lake District or Ulan Bator, Antarctica or Chile, you’ll meet up to 20 guys or girls with whom you can swap past adventures and future plans.

Enjoy a journey of discovery as you spend four minutes with each date before you meet the next. It’s the perfect amount of time to discover if you’re a nomadic match and not too long if your paths must part.

After the event, you’ll mix and mingle until closing and the next day find out your mutual matches. The rest is up to you.

Will a weekend retreat lover meet a 3-week-hiker? Or an Ibiza beach bum click with an alpine adventurer? There’s only one way to find out, book now.

  It was a fun event with a great turn out. However the venue was a little too small and it was hard to move about due to everyone being packed closely inside.

HOW IT WORKS

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.
