Bus operator Stagecoach walks us through the options we have for going on a date, whether you have the cash to splash or if you rather want to enjoy a great time out on a budget and save your money.
You can go as high up as £269 with your date night budget in Newcastle, with a nice visit to the House of Tides to get your wining and dining fix, but if you decide to hit the Aspers Casino then naturally you might spend considerably more.
You won’t have to spend more than £15 if you want to enjoy a Newcastle date on the cheap. Visit Jesmond Dene Park for a nice stroll which will have you taking in some breathtakingly beautiful scenes and then finally grab some coffee at the Millfield House Cafe.
A total spend of £355 will account for an expensive night out on a date in Manchester, perhaps kicked-off with an adrenalin inducing visit to the iFLY indoor skydiving simulator or you can go the full nine yards and skydive for real. The Adam Reid at The French is the perfect antidote for your adrenalin-inducing skydiving adventure, making for the perfect setting to reflect on your adventure.
If it’s about nothing more than just spending some time together and getting to know each other, Twenty Twenty Two makes for a nice ping pong bar that’s free on Mondays, otherwise £5 buys you a 30 minute game to break the ice with. Cocktails go for £7.
I’m pretty sure you could manage to go much higher if you really wanted to, but reasonably speaking, the most expensive date in Liverpool could go up to £490. This would typically entail a visit to the 4-Star Formby Hall Golf Resort and Spa for some luxury pampering, after which you could dine in style at the Art School Restaurant held by Michelin Star.
Budget daters can save the cash with a visit to Liverpool’s Crosby Beach. The shoreline offers so much to see and makes for a nice lovers’ stroll and there are lots of restaurants and cafes at which to grab some refreshments which shouldn’t cost you more than £20.
House For An Art Lover makes for the perfect setting to avoid any awkward silences which could possibly develop, offering art classes as a great way to spend a first date. Enjoy a good lunch at the cafe or you could even head to Brian Maule at Chandon d’Or. £270 should cover the costs for the day.
You can head on over to Queen’s Park in Glasgow for a free and fun day out with your significant other if you both enjoy nothing more than each others’ company, but Poet’s Garden is a total must. Head on over to the glasshouse cafe to get your fill on the cheap and £15 should cover the costs for the whole date.
