Fun Activities to Do with Your Partner This Summer

As the days get longer and the temperatures heat up, many UK couples are looking for opportunities to have some memorable moments in the summer. The sunny season is the perfect time to explore, relax and connect with your significant other, whether you’re looking for a touch of romance or spontaneous outdoor activity. 

These days, date nights have taken a backseat, but many romantic date ideas are enjoyable and affordable. Here’s a guide to make the most of the summer season and strengthen the bond you share with your partner.

Romantic Escapes 

The point of a date night is to increase the intimacy you have with your significant other and create some memories together. A summertime spin on a classic date excursion is to go on a romantic picnic. Pack up your favourite snacks or a homemade meal and make the most of golden hour while relaxing in the great outdoors. 

There are many cities in the UK primed for an idyllic weekend escape so you don’t even need to go abroad. Whether it’s a day trip or a weekend getaway, exploring a city you’ve never been to before offers a treasure trove of new experiences. 

Creative Date Nights 

Mix up your date night and let your creativity flow with an arts and crafts date. Pottery painting not only offers a relaxed and intimate setting to express yourselves and you also get to take away a sentimental souvenir. 

You don’t even need to go out if you don’t want to. There are plenty of at-home craft nights you can do together, including cocktail-making, pizza-designing or playing a board game. You could also play online bingo together for the chance to win some prizes. 

Outdoor Adventures 

If you enjoy outdoor activities, then why not embark on a waterfall-chasing or mountain-hiking adventure? These dates are perfect for those seeking adventure and wishing to immerse themselves in the beauty of nature. The views are unbeatable and there are countless photo opportunities. 

Crazy golf is a light-hearted activity that brings out your competitive side and can add a playful twist to your date. You can enjoy snacks and drinks in between games and challenge each other, often surrounded by beautiful scenery. 

Stay-at-home nights 

Many of us are willing to spend more money in the summer but you don’t necessarily have to. Enjoy an intimate date night in the comfort of your own home with a DIY spa night or movie marathon. Create an outdoor cinema by setting up a projector in your back garden and get a fire going while you snuggle under the stars.
