With Christmas over and done with, you may well have started thinking about Valentine’s Day.

Don’t worry if you haven’t, we’re here to help! Here are just some of the ways you could spend a romantic day in Yorkshire:

Visit a national trust location

Yorkshire is not short of beautiful National Trust sites, and these can provide the perfect setting for your Valentine’s Day. Whether it’s a few hours at Nunnington Hall or a full day exploring Wentworth Castle Gardens, there is something for everyone.

As Valentine’s Day is on a Tuesday this year, it might be best to do this the weekend before or after so that you have a full day to enjoy. Be sure to check opening times and potential entry prices before visiting to avoid disappointment.

Treat yourself to a meal out

Going out for dinner on Valentine’s Day is a popular choice for a reason, and you aren’t stuck for a choice in Yorkshire. Whether you’re celebrating with your partner or a group of friends, there are plenty of fantastic restaurants to suit everyone. It doesn’t have to be a dinner (tea) date either, if you are able to then going out for breakfast or lunch is also a lovely treat.

Take a trip to the spa

If you’re looking to go all out for Valentine’s Day this year then a spa weekend could be the perfect option. A trip to the spa will allow you both to completely relax, enjoy treatments and spend some uninterrupted quality time together. Yorkshire has lots of lovely spas, discovered easily from a quick google. Look at spas close to you and be sure to read the reviews before making a booking to make sure you have the best experience possible.

If you plan on spending Valentine’s at the spa, don’t forget to look at Valentines cards before you travel to make your partner’s day extra special no matter where you are.

Do something active

If a spa weekend isn’t up your street and you’d prefer to bond over an activity, you’re in the right place. The activity dates on offer are vast and there is something to suit everyone. From ice skating and swimming at Doncaster Dome to gravity trampolining and mini golfing at Xscape, you really are spoilt for choice.

If you are unsure of whether to plan a more active or relaxed day, opt for a short activity followed by a relaxing meal for the perfect balance.

Go wild

If your partner is an animal lover then you’re in luck. With Yorkshire being home to both Yorkshire Wildlife Park and The Deep, there are plenty of ways you can enjoy some animal spotting, and even feeding this Valentine’s Day.
