We've come up with a list of 22 outdoor date ideas that will keep you occupied throughout Spring and well into Summer. Have you tried any of these ideas? Or do you have any outdoor date ideas of your own? Let us know in the comments below.

Drive-in movie

You might think Drive-in movies are unique to the USA, or only appear in movies, but there are actually a number of drive-in movie theatres springing up around the UK.


Extreme Sports

Getting the adrenaline pumping is a great way to spend a date, and can bring a couple closer together. Try something new, such as abseiling, canyoning, or white water rafting.


Outdoor sports

If extreme sports aren't your thing, you could always enjoy a game of tennis or golf together.



Find a quiet spot, pitch your tent, and enjoy the sunset together. What could be more romantic?

For an extra special touch, use our Queen of Hearts tealight candles to add ambiance to your campsite. Just remember to always keep an eye on any naked flames!

Pretend you're a kid again with a trip to the fairground. Ride on the ferris wheel together, have a go at hook the duck and share a bag of candy floss.


Fly a kite

There is nothing quite like the sheer joy and exhiliration of flying a kite. Who says it's only for kids?


Car boot sale

Browse for bargains together at a car boot sale or antique fair – you never know what you might discover, from home wares to fashion items to antiques.



An oldie, but a goodie. There is nothing more romantic than a picnic on the beach, or in a quiet meadow.

Walk the dog

If you only have an hour or two to spare, take the dog for a walk in the local park. A simple idea, which can still be romantic.


Outdoor concert / festival

Go to an outdoor concert or festival together. Let your hair down, have a dance and enjoy yourself. Or perhaps you will discover a great new band.  



Go for a romantic country drive together, or if you have plenty cash to spare why not rent a convertible for the day?



A trip to the zoo is a great day out for couples, and can be reminiscent of your childhood.


Water fight

If the weather is really hot outside, then cool off with a water fight. Whether you use water balloons, water pistols, or just splash each other with the hose, you're sure to have a good giggle together.

You might need a hot drink to warm you up again afterwards, and our Love's A Dream mug set is ideal for couples

Go for a long walk in the woods or in the mountains. Enjoy being alone with your date and Mother Nature. Just make sure you don't get lost!



If walking isn't your thing, go for a cycle instead. You can cover much greater distances and explore new areas.



It might seem like a manly activity, but fishing can be fun for couples too. Even if you get bored you can still enjoy the scenery around the river or lake.


Explore your own town/city

Pretend you're a tourist for the day, and explore parts of your own town you've never visited before.



Go foraging in the woods for wild berries, herbs and other edible plants to make a delicious meal when you return home. Just make sure you know what you're picking!

Our Pillared Heart candle makes an extra romantic centrepiece for your table.

Go to a sports game

Girls, you'll be surprised at how fun a football game can actually be. Or, if you're not into football there are plenty of other outdoor sports – cricket, tennis, motor racing to name just a few.



A day at the beach is a great way to see your partner in shorts or a bikini. Paddle in the waves together or build a sandcastle.


Take part in a race

Competing together can bring you closer together as a couple, and there are lots of organised events from colour runs to Tough Mudder. Whatever your fitness level you'll find something suitable.


Farmers Market

Browse the local farmers' market and pick up a few tasty treats. Come home and prepare a lovely meal with all the nice ingredients you've bought
