Valentine’s day is always tricky, luckily we have a few ideas of what to do this year if you are stuck!
Have a romantic day out at Harewood House
Channel the romance of old England and stroll around the grounds of this 18th Century home. Marvel at the immaculately preserved state rooms and servant’s quarters where you can learn about the property’s royal connections and admire an extensive art collection.
Harewood’s perfectly landscaped grounds and exotic gardens are just as impressive. A tranquil lake is home to Chilean flamingos and there’s a penguin enclosure where you can help with feeding.
Only 7 miles from Leeds & Harrogate and 22 miles from York Harewood House is the perfect place for the most romantic day of the year.
Cuddle up and watch a movie at Everyman Cinema
Located in the trinity centre in Leeds Everyman is far from an average cinema experience. Instead of usual seating the screens are decked out with comfy sofas that are perfect for cuddling and the usual cup holders are replaced with end tables and wine coolers.
If that isn’t enough there is also a fully fledged pizzeria underneath the cinema. You can have pizza delivered to your seat during the movie!
There are plenty of romantic films on this valentine's day including La La Land, 50 Shades Darker and a special screening of Dirty Dancing for its 30th anniversary. Check their website for prices and bookings below.
Take tea for two at Betty’s
Betty’s is a Yorkshire institution, they’ve spent 96 years perfecting the English tradition of afternoon tea. You and your partner can share a pot of one of the expertly blended teas and a selection of sandwiches and cakes served on a silver cake stand.
Every Betty’s tearoom location has beautiful decorated period interiors and delightful staff who will help you have a truly elegant date. With two cafes in York and another in Harrogate you can book your table by following the link below.
