You’ve found this fantastic new person who makes your heart flutter and your stomach twist into knots. You want to take them on an amazing date but don’t want to do the whole dinner-and-a-movie thing. Fear not, here are some out-of-the-ordinary ideas to have some fun with your new mate!

Take a Horseback Ride through Hyde Park


Saddle up and ride! Ross Nye Stables in London offers guided horseback rides through Hyde Park. What a romantic opportunity to ride off into the sunset together!

Take a Speedboat Down the Thames

Feeling fast and furious? Grab your partner and zip down the Thames in a speedboat with the music of James Bond blasting as you go. This is also an excellent option for group dates.

Stop by the Sky Garden

It may be free to enter, but priceless experiences await at the Sky Garden. Have a nice good-morning stretch at sunrise yoga or take in a live music session. Looking for something a bit slower-paced? You can also walk around and gaze out at the stunning London skyline.

Indulge in Some Wine in a Cave!


Claiming to be the oldest wine bar in London, Gordon’s Wine Bar is established in Charing’s Cross, London. Enjoy a relaxing evening outside at one of their patio tables, or take a journey to the cellar and have some wine by candlelight.

Have a Romantic Night In

Always a classic choice, cuddle up in a romantic hotel, flip on Netflix, munch on some snacks, and maybe play some board games or challenge each other on the slots at NetBet – the winnings can go to the next date outing.
