12 date night (or day) ideas in and around Bolton

  • Escape from Crack It Bolton

The one place where someone trying to get away from you in a room might be a good thing! Work on your communication and team skills at the Crack It escape room.

  • Peruse the pizza menu at Casalingo

If you love pizza but are looking for something a little more… date friendly than Domino’s, Casalingo is a good bet. With plenty of Italian classics to choose from you might want to go the extra mile and learn how to pronounce some of the dishes perfectly to impress your date before coming here!

  • Work through an argument at Real Axe

What’s better than throwing an axe (safely) instead of having a bicker at home? With 60 or 90 minute sessions at Real Axe, you’ll be laughing together again just in time to enjoy some smokehouse BBQ.

  • Visit the Bolton Aquarium

Opened in 1941, the Bolton Aquarium is a great place to go out with someone you’re dating. Watch the fish swim by and dream of being a merperson at your own volition.

  • Become a theatre fanatic at Bolton Octagon

Take in the architecture before a show at the uniquely designed Geoffrey H. Brooks theatre in the centre of town – who doesn’t love an excuse to dress up?!

  • Visit the Arcade Club

Just a 22 minute drive from Bolton, Arcade Club is the biggest indoor arcade in Europe. With three floors of gaming covering everything from retro arcade machines to VR experiences, it’s a great place to take a game lover.

  • Eat at the best curry house in the UK

Hot Chilli in Bromley Cross won the Asian Restaurant and Takeaway Awards in 2020, so take a foodie there to really impress. Priding themselves on authentic Indian cuisine, Hot Chilli is known to draw in people from all over the country to sample their tastebud-tingling delights.

  • Hike the Pike

Dating someone with a love for the outdoors? Take a stroll up the Rivington Pike to enjoy some wonderful views of Northwest England. Fun fact: there are some prehistoric sites nearby, meaning you’re close to walking with dinosaurs!

  • Play mini golf at Amazonia

Mini golf is a classic date night! Amazonia stays true to their name with a jungle theme and 18 unique holes to put your way through before settling down for a drink at their café.

  • Sample pastries at Ye Olde Pastie Shoppe

Opened in 1898, you’ll usually spot Ye Olde Pastie Shoppe at the top of list of the best bakeries in Manchester – but it’s actually in Bolton! Legendary pastries abound at this family owned shop and café combo, so it’s perfect for a weekend date or to take away and sit in a park (weather permitting of course!).

  • Jumbles Country Park

The Jumbles Country Park and Reservoir is the ideal place to take an afternoon stroll on a lazy Saturday – watch the sun set over the water and take in the picturesque views after walking the woodland trail or take a picnic (we’d recommend Ye Olde Pastie Shoppe for that) and watch the world go by.

  • Sample the microbrew at Northern Monkey Bar

Microbreweries are having a moment after all! Support local independent business and brewers and show your date that you’re on the pulse when it comes to evenings out in Bolton by dropping in for a visit – they also do deliveries for film night in with local produce.
