Summer is peak dating season. Whether you’ve been together for years or just hitting it off, nothing gets you in the mood for romance like the long, sunny days and warm nights of summer. Plus, with all that daylight, there’s so more time in the day to make the most of. So with that in mind, here’s our pick of the best summer date ideas to make sun-kissed memories you’ll remember for years to come.
Go for a Bike Ride
Hunt out a cycling route that will take you through some beautiful scenery and set off for the day. Or if you’re feeling adventurous, have no plan at all and enjoy make surprising discoveries along the way. It’s a sure fire way to boost your mood and evoke those carefree summers of old.
Watch a Sunset
Sunsets in summer are something else. And they’re even better with someone special by your side. So take a note of the best vantage point in your local area, grab a picnic (and maybe a few bottles!) and enjoy nature’s beautiful display.
Visit a Vineyard
Take a beautiful natural setting, throw in a few glasses of your favourite tipple and you’ve got the makings of an excellent date. There are a surprising number of high quality vineyards in the UK. Particularly in the South and South West. So you might find yourself stuck for choice when deciding where to visit first.
Go Out for Breakfast
Trying to eat out on a restaurant’s terrace can be difficult in summer. Chances are you’ll have to wait in a long line of other people looking to soak up the summer ambience. But one way to skip the queues is to head out early for the first meal of the day so you can bag that key spot together as the sun begins to stir.
Get Out on the Water
Whether it’s paddleboarding or canoeing, sailing or surfing, getting out on the water is pure date perfection. Even if you live in the city, there are plenty of parks with lakes that let you hire boats to get that hit of nautical adventure. Pack a speaker, sunscreen and plenty of drinks and sit back and enjoy the ride.
Go to an Outdoor Cinema or Set Up Your Own
Lots of places offer outdoor cinema experiences in the summer months. You can find showings anywhere from old abbeys, parks, bars, city squares and even caves! Or you could set up a projector in your garden and create your own at home!
