Easter Date Ideas

The long Easter Bank Holiday weekend is a wonderful time to get dating. With a few extra days off work, the arrival of British Summer Time and the promise of better weather, it’s the perfect time to get outdoors and have some fun with your date. Here are our favourite Muddy Matches ideas for dating this Easter weekend.

1. Beach walk

What could be better than a romantic stroll along the beach, wind in your air, waves breaking in the background and the promise of a refreshing ice-cream or hearty meal of fish and chips at the end? There’s something so liberating about visiting the beach, making it a top contender in our list of Easter date ideas.

2. Picnic al fresco

Slow down the pace and picnic al fresco. It’s worth taking a little time to prep this date idea; do some research to find a local beauty spot, visit the supermarket or, even better, put some time and effort into prepping your food and don’t forget the essentials: rug, cutlery, crockery, blankets and wind-break or parasol for protection against the elements.

3. National Trust visit

At this time of year, the spring flowers are in full bloom and the countryside is looking marvellous. Whether your local National Trust property is a historic house or AONB, there’s sure to be something going on there for Easter to keep you and your date well-entertained.

4. Get cooking with Easter favourites

From Simnel cake to Hot Cross Buns, chocolate nests to Sunday roasts, you can impress your date and make memories together as you whip up a storm in the kitchen. Download some great recipes, get the groceries in then spend a lazy Easter Saturday together.

5. Egg Hunt

Let your inner child loose on Easter Egg hunt -they aren’t just for kids! Make your own by hiding chocolate eggs in your garden (and make clues if you’re really keen), invite your date around and let the fun commence! Follow up with a romantic alfresco picnic or home-cooked dinner and you’re on to a winner. If you’re short on time or creativity, then search your local paper or the internet for a local egg hunt.

6. Play tourist in your home county

When was the last time you had a good, old-fashioned ‘day out’. Make the most of the Easter break and head out to a local historic site, rural point of interest, countryside beauty spot or historic house. As well as rediscovering your local area, making a visit together is a wonderful way to make memories with your Muddy Match.

7. Cross-country walk

If you and your date share a love of walking then why not head out for a long hike? There are some beautiful ideas for Spring Walks here from The Times, or head to your nearest National Park for a dose of wild beauty.

8. Romantic mini-break

Have you and your date been together a while? Then why not treat them to a mini-break in the English countryside? Escaping the everyday and visiting somewhere new is always exciting, and what better way to show someone you care?
