PART I - Fun first or second date ideas

#1. BYO picnic

So one of you brings say the drink, blanket, plates and cutlery, the other brings the nibbles.  Then all you need to do is decide on a good location and away you go! A great park is a good choice, but equally go for a promenade, or just some green open space.  With an eye to safety make sure it is a public place where there will still be plenty of people.  Oh and if you get the slightly easier deal (i.e. the drinks) try to still make an effort, like make your own cordial or lemonade.

#2. Take a cooking class

An excellent idea!  It’s really good fun, you should have a good laugh and in most cases you get to eat what you make.

#3. Go to a food/beer festival or street fair.

Probably a better idea in the summer as there should be some choice.  In London for example they host the XX, at Christmas there are plenty of Christmas markets and in the summer towns and villages across the UK have beer and cider festivals (of course make sure your date enjoys beer or cider before you suggest that one!)

#4. Head to a theme park

You are never too old to enjoy a good theme park (unless of course you suffer from vertigo).

#5. Go to an outdoor movie or concert

Again probably something for the summer, but these do spring up all over the place.  Keep your eye out for them.  There are certainly a lot in London but again they do run throughout the UK.

#6. Go to the races

Going to the races is great fun and many of the racecourses around the UK have evening meetings in the summer.  Newmarket for example has a brilliant evening of around 6 races, followed by a popular singer, it’s called “Newmarket nights” and full details can be found here.

#7. Bike ride

If you both have your own bike and enjoy riding this will be a great date. Why not explore somewhere different for both of you, that will make it much more fun and you will both get a great sense of adventure. If you don’t have you own bike, don’t stop there many places around the UK hire them. I recently visited the new forest for example and there were plenty of places to hire a bike.

#8. Walk London

Why not plan a good walk in London. There are plenty of books that detail good walks and also act as a guide on your journey, picking out points of interest and providing suggestions on great pubs you should visit. In the early days of a relationship its best to walk in public places and you are certainly going to get that in London. Once you know each other much better you can move on to hiking in the countryside!

#9. Pretend to be a tourist

Visit somewhere as a tourist, it could be a country house, a park, a museum or a planetarium. Enjoy learning new things, seeing new things and more importantly experiencing new things. Plus most attractions these days have great cafes, which you can stop at whist you are there.  If you are close to London then this is a really easy thing to do as there are 1,000’s of tourist attractions in the City.

#10. Go banger car racing

This is the motorsport where they can and do bash into everyone!  It’s a great spectacle, really exciting and unlike F1 there is lots of overtaking.
