Fancy getting active? Sip watermelon cocktails as you show off your serve at PING, an achingly hip Ping-Pong bar which transforms into a club after hours at weekends. Or find out how well you’d work as a team by embarking on a treasure hunt around London, organised by UK: The Game, which sends your clues by text message for you and your date to crack.
Great date ideas in London should include dates that are perfect ice breakers, like going to a class together – think cocktail making lessons, cooking lessons, or jive lessons – they will all give you something to talk about after the date.
Similarly, you can attend wine and chocolate tasting events, or pretend to be tourists for the day and go on tour buses, visit Madame Tussauds, or Big Ben.
If you fancy something simple, but romantic, head to a bookstore, pick out a book for each other and then go to Gordon’s Wine Bar to sit and read the books whilst sipping wine by candlelight. As Gordon’s gets packed in the evenings, try heading there for an afternoon date.
