Something different

If candlelit dinners, films, theatres and weekends away aren’t original enough, here are some other ideas:

  • walk along the beach – even in winter this can be romantic, especially on a west coast when the sun is setting.
  • boat trip – on a river, canal or the sea, either hire a boat for an hour or take a guided trip somewhere.
  • the London Eye – fantastic views over London, and nothing to do but admire them for half an hour or so. If you met in London, can you see the place?
  • breakfast picnic – why not get up early and go and watch the sun rise?
  • fair or theme park – remember the waltzer? The Tunnel of Love? Go on, have a go!
  • wildlife park or zoo – make sure they have your partner’s favourite animal there.
  • museum or art gallery – have a gentle stroll around, just enjoying each other’s company in the quiet atmosphere, then share a pudding in the shop.
  • go racing (horse or dogs!) – you have the full range to choose from,, dog track on a Thursday to Royal Ascot!

The most important thing is that you spend quality time together, having fun!
