My DH says he wants to take me up the Oxo tower for Valentine's Day...

...but I must admit, I have my reservations.
It's not something he has ever suggested before. And we've been married for 15 years.
I'm quite adventurous and open to new experiences but really, I have to say this has taken me by surprise.
Has anyone else been taken up the Oxo tower? Was it an enjoyable experience? Would you recommend it?

Am I missing something?
He says I'll enjoy it, and that I should buy a new outfit? WTF does one wear on such an occasion?

diamante butt plug and a pained expression

I took DP up the Oxo tower for his birthday.

He loved it but said he wouldn't it every week, just for a special occasion.

We did that once with friends. It was fun!

Went up the Oxo Tower with a group of girlfriends. It was fabulous. It wasn't as big as I'd hoped though. grin

i tried to take my lover up there (their suggestion) but space was at a premium and we couldn't get in.

DH says not to order the chocolate pudding! grin

Now I come to think of it, I've taken my Mum up the Oxo Tower - she wasn't too keen, said it was a bit noisy.

We went once but you should be warned it's a bit of a grim area
