Valentine’s Day will be upon us on the 14th February and rather than falling back on the trusty fodder of cheap chocolate roses and cuddly teddies, we wanted to celebrate Valentines with an experience.
And luckily for us, Valentine’s day is fast becoming the focus of immersive experiences and events, which makes perfect sense. Why suffer through an uncomfortable “dinner for two” with cringy romantic music, over zealous rose sellers and nauseating pink decorations and try out one of our top 5 Valentine’s experiences this year. (sorry if you love that stuff!)
Your loved one will definitely thank your for this night out.
Take your Bake OFF
What a better way to find out if you’re compatible with your better half than putting your baking skills to the test in the ultimate bake off style competition. Compete against other couples and see if your relationship can stand the test, they say if you can’t take the heat get out the kitchen.
Ticket available from 6th February 2019 tickets here
Pop down to the Natural History Museum and enjoy a romantic movie (Tear jerker The Notebook and Pretty Woman are showing on 14th February) and get to explore the museum after hours. This experience will allow you to walk with dinosaurs, an essential for a romantic evening out and as this is after hours, maybe slope off for a quick snog behind the T-Rex.
