Top Christmas Date Ideas

With another Christmas upon us, it’s time to get into the spirit of the season and start celebrating!
While a cosy night in front of the TV might seem appealing, there are so many exciting Christmas-themed date ideas worth experiencing.
Here are our favourite festive rendezvous from across the country:
 

Birmingham – Christmas Market

Birmingham’s Frankfurt Christmas Market, the largest outdoor Christmas market in the country, is packed with quaint stalls, creative gift ideas and an abundance of food and heart-warming drinks.
Browse the stalls together and soak up the festive atmosphere until your fingers go cold, then stop for a German hot dog and a mulled wine to bring back the circulation. And, if you’re looking to inject a little nostalgic fun into your date, why not take them for a spin on the carousel!
 

Edinburgh – Ice Skating

Get your skates on (quite literally) and take your date ice-skating in the picturesque surroundings of Princes Street Gardens. At night, the disco lights are switched on, along with the Christmas tunes, and you can enjoy a real party atmosphere together.
This wonderfully wintery activity provides the perfect chance to well and truly break the ice (no pun intended) with your date. And what’s more, it’s certain to fill you both with some festive cheer!
 

London – Hyde Park Winter Wonderland

Unleash your inner youth and soak up the magical atmosphere of Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland in London.
The Winter Wonderland has an abundance of entertainments, all in one park. From the Ferris wheel to Zippo’s Circus, the ice skating rink to impressive ice sculptures – there really is something for everyone.
After exploring together, you can unwind and get a little better acquainted over a mulled wine or cider, or a tipple of your choice, in the Bavarian village.
 

Manchester – Arndale Christmas Grotto

Santa Claus is coming to…Manchester! And he’s here to answer your Christmas wishes.
Take a trip down memory lane and add some Christmas sparkle into your date, with a visit to Santa’s Grotto inside the Arndale Centre.
A magical treat for all ages, this will be a fun date for the two of you. And, you might even get an idea of what to buy them for Christmas, if Santa’s elves don’t beat you to the shops.
 

Liverpool – Carol Singing at Liverpool Cathedral

Nothing beats a hearty bout of carol singing, and what better place to belt out the crimbo tunes than at the famous Liverpool Cathedral.
Here, the two of you can enjoy a good, old fashioned yuletide sing-song, and there could be a couple of mince pies in it for you, too!
