Where to go for Valentine's Day

Where to go for Valentine's Day

Archant

This is the Valentine's Day 2016 date guide for Kent. Ditch the Valentine's Day gifts and head out for some quality time with your loved one

Out to dinner

A classic way to woo your partner, taking someone out to dinner is a romantic way to spend the evening. Why not try The Townhouse restaurant in Maidstone for an intimate dining experience?

For a walk along the beach

What could be more romantic than a long ramble on the coast cuddling up to your loved one against the chill wind? Strolling along the sand on a winter’s afternoon is a therapeutic way to spend time with just the two of you and takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the modern world. Why not visit the shingle beach of Dungeness or Sandwich Bay?

To the theatre

Grab a large popcorn to share, a glass of wine each and be exhilarated by live music or a gripping stage performance. Try out the Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury and check out our February diary for more events this month.

To an art gallery

Being alone together wandering through an art gallery admiring the fascinating things on show and coming together afterwards to discuss your favourite pieces over a coffee and cake sounds like a pretty good date to me. Why not visit the Turner Contemporary in the seaside town of Margate for contemporary and historical art?

To a café

Check out our guide to the best Kent cafés or stumble upon a new place whilst exploring with your beau. Order something sweet to share for a mini Valentine’s Day celebration.

To a historic place

There are plenty of historic places to visit in Kent that are extremely romantic. Try wandering through a stately home or getting lost in the snowdrops on the grounds of a grand estate with the one you love. Visit Penshurst Place, the 14th century manor house and its picturesque gardens for a real Valentine’s Day treat.

To a hotel

Surprising your significant other with a trip away to a fancy hotel for the night has got to be the ultimate Valentine’s Day celebration. You will feel like you are in Downtown Abbey at Chilston Park Hotel in Ledham, Maidstone.

Nowhere

Finally, for those of us with busy schedules who can’t think of anything better on a cold February evening than a bottle of wine, a takeaway, and watching old movies whilst curled up on the sofa with your loved one then do just that!
