Valentine’s DayCreative Tourist
Valentine’s Day is on the horizon, but fear not, we have a host of ideas and suggestions for the big day (number one: don’t get a surprise tattoo of your boo’s face on your thigh). You can either dive headfirst into slushy Hallmark platitudes, or do something a little more stylish and original, and if you’re thinking the latter, you’ve come to the right place.
We’ve got some superb restaurant options in Manchester and the North, ideal for all budgets, from the showy to less-brash-but-equally-meaningful options. Remember, this year, 14 February kicks off on a Tuesday, so be sure to book that Wednesday off, or have a good excuse lined up when you ring in sick.
But despite what Cupid might say, it’s not all about eating and drinking. We have options for all tastes, whether you want to stimulate your mind or other sensations. With that in mind, cinema is always a winner, and we’ve plucked out a few choice selections dotted across the North. Make sure to practice your yawn and arm-stretch combo in advance.
We’ve also got some live performances and exhibitions to attend, and other brain-tingling events on the weekend directly before the big day itself. And do keep checking back as we’ll keep updating this list with all the best Valentine’s Day selections for all you lovestruck lot as and when they come in.
If you’re still stuck for inspiration, don’t forget our guides to the very best cinema, theatre, music, exhibitions, literature, tours & activities and food and drink in Manchester and the North.
