Top ways to spend the day

Written by    Last updated: June 6, 2006

Valentine’s day is the perfect excuse to go over the top with the romance. Be inspired with these loved up ways to spend the day…

Escape on a romantic getaway

Check out the galleries in Paris, sip coffee at the canal‐side cafes of Amsterdam, or go to a place that means something to you as a couple. It needn’t be ridiculously exotic or expensive: if it’s the bench in the park where you first kissed, that’ll do just fine.

Spend a night in a castle

Complete the fairytale romance of the day by checking in to one of the many castle hotels dotted around the country.

Have a picnic

You may think it’s too cold for a picnic, but the great thing is picnics can be had anywhere ‐‐ from your living room to a train (preferably the Eurostar!). Or just wrap up warm and snuggle up close on a blanket in the park.

Hire a limo

Make your valentine feel really special by treating them to a trip around town in a limousine. And don’t forget the bubbly…

Book a spa treatment for two

De‐stress and feel intimate with a joint massage session. You’ll end up looking and smelling great and probably in a very good mood too…
