If your wallet is preventing you from a romantic night out with that special someone, this list of cheap date ideas will be your lifesaver.
Each date is under 50 pounds and will not disappoint you on the excitement factor!
Hit Up a Patio
Grab a pint or beverage of choice at a new bar that brags a gorgeous patio! The best for warm evenings, discovering new local watering holes can become tradition for you and your date.
Looking for a great place to start? Visit The Mayflower Pub in London for a drink with a view.
For the adventurous and fitness type, combining date night with a workout might just be your cup of tea. Explore new jogging trails, rent out a kayak and hit the water, or opt in for rock climbing at the nearest fitness centre.
At the cost of just equipment rental, there is no excuse to skip out on a fun day of romance and exercise.
If you are hankering for an evening in, a games night is right down your alley. Choose a few new board games that you can learn together, or invite another couple over to expand your gaming options.
Keep it cosy and casual by ordering some food for delivery, and enjoy the laughter and the (hopefully!) friendly competition.
Random Road Trip
When you are looking for some adventure and excitement, nothing beats the thrill of picking a random spot on the map and travelling there.
Make it a day trip to keep the costs limited to fuel and snacks along the way, and discover new territory with your date. If you’ve already stopped at tourist destinations such as the London Eye, try your luck at a random small town!
Artsy couples, a local paint night may make for the perfect cost-friendly date night! Paint nights consist of a painting class and usually include a glass of wine or two.
The cost will cover materials and the lesson, and the classes are offered across the UK at different venues. Learn a new skill and possibly a new favourite pastime!
Be a Tourist
Be a tourist in your own city! Research local tourist stops, take a packed lunch, and make a day out of visiting popular places and pretend to discover them for the first time.
Not only is this a silly and fun idea, you may end up learning a new thing or two about the history in your own backyard.
For those that fancy a low-key night inside the comfort of home, a friendly cook-off competition may heat things up (pun intended).
Look online for new recipes and challenge each other to cook up two amazing dishes, or jump in together to make a perfect dinner. Get creative by making your own pizza dough and have a DIY pizza night!
