Favourite Five: Ways to celebrate Valentine's Day in Bristol

Updated: Jan 24, 2019

1. Book a table at Under The Stars

Can there can be a more romantic setting than a candlelit boat on Bristol's harbourside?

Add gorgeous food, a selection of locally brewed beers, and a friendly relaxed vibe, and you're onto a winner. If you've never visited Under The Stars before (and even if you have!), get yourself a reservation immediately.

2. Enjoy a film at Everyman Cinema

This gorgeous cinema is fast becoming every Bristolian's film-watching venue of choice.

Enjoy the stylish decor, comfy sofas, food and drink brought straight to your seats, and even a choice of blankets. This all makes for an extremely cosy and romantic night out!

3. Stroll around some Bristol classics

If you prefer to have a daytime date, why not start at the Bristol Museum & Art Gallery on Queens Road, taking in some of the fabulous exhibitions? Then take a stroll down Park Street, checking out the quirky independent shops, before heading to Boston Tea Party for brunch.

Mrs Pott's hot chocolate

Or head a bit further down the road for a special hot chocolate at Mrs Potts Chocolate House, or some fabulous gelato for two at Swoon on College Green. The choices are endless!

4. Experience 'After Hours: LOVE'

For a different kind of date night, We The Curious is opening for a special adults-only event with a romantic theme.

Enjoy music, cocktails, food, stargazing shows, and 'intriguing' games and activities. Sound like fun? You can find out more here.

5. Stay the night at Wild Place Project

You might be used to chasing the kids around this outdoor attraction, just north of the city. There are however special adult-only Valentine's stays at Camp Baboon on offer this month.

Stay in a fully-heated cabin, with rose petals on your bed and a welcome package which includes chocolates and a chilled bottle of fizz to enjoy beside the camp fire whilst gazing at the stars.

You'll also have breakfast with the giraffes (!) and enjoy exclusive tours of the park. Why not book it and make the kids jealous?
