A date in some of the most popular city locations in the UK can be as expensive or as cheap as you like, but you need to know where and how to look to take your significant other out in line with your budget. Bus operator, Stagecoach, takes us through the costs of going out on a date in different UK regions.
For the high-rollers of the day dating it up in Newcastle, you could head on over to the House of Tides to enjoy the perfect wining and dining spot. When you’re done savouring your meal head on over to The Botanist to catch some great views of the city. £269 should cover this premium Geordie Shore date, unless of course you decide to try your luck at the Aspers Casino.
For some romance on a budget, Jesmond Dene Park is a great venue to spend an afternoon marvelling at the beauty of the wooded valley along the Ouseburn River. Millfield House Cafe lies in wait afterwards where you can pop in for some coffee. The total cost for the date would come up to £15.
For a date neither of you will forget, how about a skydiving excursion? If going the full nine yards is too much for you to stomach, Manchester’s iFLY indoor skydiving simulator experience will do.
A nice lovers’ stroll to Adam Reid at The French will do well to top of the date with your own taste of what the ‘best restaurant in Manchester’ award-winner has to offer, all of which would have you spending at least £355.
The least expensive date in Manchester would have you spending no more than £19 if you play your cards right and you visit Twenty Twenty Two on Mondays when ping pong is free, otherwise it’ll cost you £5 for each 30 minutes of ping pong and £7 for cocktails.
In Liverpool you can enjoy a luxury spa experience offered by the 4-Stary Formby Hall Gold Resort and Spa if you want to splurge, perhaps followed by a trip into the city centre where you and your lover can enjoy some fine dining at The Art School Restaurant held by the Michelin Star. The entire date will set you back £490.
If money is an issue, then the least expensive you can go by way of a date in Liverpool is perhaps a visit to the Crosby Beach. The shoreline offers lots to see and you can pick up a bite to eat at any one of the restaurants lining the coastline. You won’t have to spend more than £20 on refreshments.
House For An Art Lover is an art gallery which offers art classes that you can take your partner to for a date that will quell any opportunities for those awkward silences that may develop, after which you could grab some lunch at Brian Maule at Chandon d’Or. £270 should suffice to cover the whole date.
Queen’s Park in Glasgow makes for a great venue you can access for free, with a stopover at the Poet’s Garden a total must as well. £15 should cover your refreshments which you can get from the glasshouse cafe.
