The UK is having a very rainy summer this year so the usual summer date ideas like picnics in the park or long romantic walks in the countryside have to be set aside for the time being (nobody wants soggy sandwiches!).
What fun date ideas are there for when the rainy weather keeps you inside?
We’ve compiled a list to give you some inspiration, whether it’s your first or fiftieth date.
Book a table for lunch or dinner in a nice pub/restaurant.
If you want to treat yourselves and make it special, this is the classic date idea. Have a couple of drinks or pair it with some lovely food, it’s always a great date idea for whatever the weather.
Watch your favourite movies or binge your favourite TV shows together.
Spend a rainy day watching the things you both love! Show each other your favourite movie or TV show whilst snuggled on the sofa with your favourite snacks. It’s a great way to do something you both enjoy.
Cook and eat dinner together.
This can be a really romantic activity to do together. Share the tasks between you and cook your favourite meals. To make it extra special you could have 3 courses and enjoy a candlelit dinner just the two of you.
Go to a local museum or art gallery.
To incorporate a little culture into your date, visit a museum or art gallery for some historical subject matter to talk about. This is great especially if one of you is really passionate about something you’re going to see. Check the exhibitions and see if there’s anything you’d both like to visit.
Play your favourite games.
Whether you like console games, board games or card games, you can play together and show your competitive side! Show your date your favourite game to play, and challenge them to beat you. It’s a great opportunity to show something you’re passionate about, whilst having a lot of fun together.
So whether you want to go out and find an indoor activity, or stay indoors and stay dry, there’s plenty of ideas for you to get some inspiration from.
