5 summer date ideas

Make the most of the summer by taking the object of your affections on a pretty special date, taking advantage of all the activities that are only really on offer through the summer months. Warning – these are pretty much guaranteed to sweep her off her feet!


Outdoor Cinema/ Theatre
There are a tonne of these on around the UK. Our favourite, purely for the originality and novelty of it, would have to be the rooftop, hot tub cinema but it’s probably not for the prudish or faint hearted! Extra points if you book to see a chick flick or an 80s classic.

Park Date
Pack a picnic including a bottle of fizz and head to the park for the afternoon with your paramour. We recommend taking strawberries, some hummus and crisps, a little tomato, mozzarella and basil salad plus a few summer pastries. Earn extra points for picking a park where you can work up an appetite rowing her around the lake for half an hour before. Pure romance!

Bike Ride
Take your date on an after work bike ride along a nice, quiet flat route. Why not suggest a tandem at the bike hire shop too, guaranteed to go down a real treat. It’s active and takes advantage of the long, mild summer evenings. Stop off along the way for a half pint. It’ll give you tonnes to talk about too.

Barge Trip
For something a little more extravagant and alternative why not book a canal boat ride. If you don’t feel confident driving the thing there are always plenty available for a captained trip along the waterways of your local city. It’ll set you miles apart from any other past dates for sure.

Beach BBQ
Hop on a train to your nearest stretch of coastline for a fun daytime date on the beach. Take a disposable BBQ and a few sausages and a nice cold bottle of wine in a cool box. It’ll give you plenty of time to chat, the scenery will be great and you’re bound to be in her good books if you get her a retro 99 for a stroll along the promenade before you head home.

There you have it, 5 sizzling summertime date ideas you can’t go wrong with! Get your outfit right by keeping it smart and simple with a short sleeve shirt and chino shorts. Enjoy!
