If you have a date planned then you may find yourself stumbling for new ideas on how to spend it. Maybe you are looking for something unique to do for a first date or perhaps you and your partner are tired of heading to the same spots and are in need of something fresh.
Here are five suggestions for a date in Surrey that will allow you to enjoy each other’s company and experience something a little different.
Hit the “Beach”
A beach?! In Surrey! Well, not exactly but it is the next best thing. Frensham Great Pond and common boasts fantastic water quality for swimming if you fancy a quick dip, and a wonderful sandy stretch ideal for strolls or a spot of sunbathing. It’s not quite the crashing waves of the coast, but an equally beautiful spot for walking and talking, getting to know one another and putting the world to rights.
Feel Butterflies at Thorpe Park
This may not be a first date adventure unless you are prepared for your new love interest to see you pulling your best rollercoaster faces… or feeling a little queasy. If you are both adrenaline seeking individuals then a date at Thorpe Park is perfect! The queues will offer you some time to chat and get to know each other a little better, and you can enjoy the thrill of the rides together. Even if you don’t hit it off then at least you can both still have a good time in the company of someone who clearly shares a common interest with you.
Fly High at Wildwood
At Wildwood in Guildford you can tackle zip wires and explore the treetop obstacles – another great way to showcase your adventurous side! A unique way to spend your date, this one is probably second date territory as you’ll be having so much fun there may not be much time or opportunity for conversation.
Grab a Crafty Drink and Some Dinner
Dinner dates are a fairly safe ‘go-to’ for daters. So why not shake up your dining a little bit by trying something new. As well as having a great selection of locally sourced ingredients on the dinner menu at theflintgate.co.uk, you can also experience some locally brewed quality vegan craft ales, beers and ciders with your meal. There are over 30 to choose from!
Alternatively, why not head out on a cookery course? After all, they say the way to a man (or woman’s) heart is through the stomach, so what better way to discover one another’s likes and dislikes than by creating food together. Rustle up some mouth-watering treats to share and enjoy each other’s company while enjoying good food.
Catch a Movie
Heading to the cinema is a great date for long-established couples, but there is no denying that it removes all chance for conversation; so not ideal for a budding relationship. However, Surrey has a number of outdoor cinema experiences popping up throughout the summer, at various destinations, that offer a unique twist on this longstanding “date night” tradition. A nostalgic film in an outdoor setting, with the gentle buzz of quiet conversation surrounding you, as people relax and enjoy the experience surrounded by nature. Luna Cinema host at many venues and have lots of movie titles to choose from across the UK.
Dating doesn’t have to be dull, why not show your date your quirky side by taking them on a date with a difference. You may discover newfound interests you never knew you had, and you’ll have something really fun to tell the grandkids someday.
