Valentine’s Day: 5 Simple and Affordable Date Ideas

Tuesday, February 11, 2020

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and it is more expensive than ever to visit a fancy restaurant, buy a gift or even visit the florist. Here at Leeds Credit Union, we don’t believe you can put a price on love, so we have put together a list of Valentine’s Day ideas that won’t break the bank… 

Movie Night

The perfect idea for couples and families. Netflix and Amazon Prime have 30 day free trials, so all you need to do is pick your film or series, grab your popcorn, snuggle up and turn your living room into your very own cinema. 

Cooking Together

Why not dust off the Jamie Oliver cookbooks and whip up a storm in the kitchen. Cooking together is the perfect way to spend some quality time together. Why spend money on a fancy restaurant, when you can wine and dine your loved one at home? 

Get cultural at Leeds Art Gallery

Dating can get a little expensive, but you don’t need to flash the cash to impress. Leeds Art Gallery is one of the best date destinations in Leeds - the perfect way to spend an afternoon taking in some local culture, and entrance is free. 

Head out to the coast

Yorkshire is home to many beaches, including Whitby, Scarborough, Bridlington and Filey. So why not wrap up warm and head down to the coast - maybe the wind won’t be the only thing that takes your breath away! 

Bike around the city

Hire or use your own bikes to explore our great city and the beautiful surrounding areas. Leeds List hasut together a list of the best places to visit in Leeds and beyond - take a look here.
