Flowers, chocolate, wining and dining – it might all seem a little too cliché for some couples. Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and to keep romance alive, you might be looking for a new way to celebrate the most romantic day of the year. Here are some alternative Valentine’s dates to put a smile on your date’s face…

Couples Photoshoot

For anywhere between £20 – £40 you can have some beautiful, professional couple photos taken to fill the spaces in your photo album. It’s an experience that brings you closer, and you’ll certainly treasure it forever – not to mention you’ll have some wonderful mementos to put on display in your home.
alternative valentine'sTrampoline Park

Trampoline parks aren’t just for kids! Most venues host an ‘adult only’ evening so you and like-minded others can experience the park without the chaos that children bring. If you and your date are lovers of fitness and keeping active, then a bounce together is perfect for a fun-filled and calorie burning night! Prices are typically around £10 per person.

Indoor Skydiving

If you’re looking for something a little more daring, and don’t mind a slightly pricier date, then indoor skydiving is ideal. For around £100, you and your date could have their chance at indoor skydiving; it’s a perfect way to spend Valentine’s Day if you are a pair of thrill-seekers! Or better yet, you could always try actual skydiving? I’ll pass on that one, thanks.

Alpaca Trekking

From £30, you and your loved one could spend a part of the special day walking your own alpacas. It sounds a little strange, but think of it as a romantic trek through beautiful countryside with two furry friends along for the ride. If you’re both animal and nature enthusiasts, then this quirky date idea could be perfect for you.
Alternative Valentine'sComedy Club

Nothing creates a strong bond like a giggle together! For around £15 you could both attend your local comedy club and spend Valentine’s Day laughing the evening away. An affordable evening of jokes is a great way to break the ice if you and your date are just getting to know each other.

A Visit to the Zoo

For all you animal lovers, don’t underestimate the romance of strolling around a park full of beautiful and exotic creatures. From as little as £15 per person, you could spend the most romantic day of the year admiring the world’s most fascinating mammals, birds, reptiles, and fish together.

Sushi Making Course

Foodies will love this! And if you’re both a fan of this fishy delicacy, then a sushi making course is perfect for you! Restaurants such as Yo Sushi host sushi making courses which teach you both how to make and serve it traditionally. Prices vary between £40 – £60. And you’ll get your own rolling mat! Bonus.
