8 Fun Date Ideas in Manchester

by Sophie Cannon (follow)
Planning a date night/day, especially when you have kids can sometimes be difficult!

Not only do you have to find a suitable time between work, kids activities and the everyday grind, but you also need to factor in a babysitter.

That's why when you do get the chance to spend some quality time with your other half, you want to make it special.

We've put together 8 awesome date ideas in and around Manchester, so next time, why not ditch the typical meal and movie and try out one of these:

1. Monkeying Around
For a fun 'date day' you can't get more active than a trip to Go Ape. Put your partner's trust to the test whilst climbing and zip-lining through one of Go Ape's magical forest adventures. Probably not for the faint hearted but if you both love a challenge then this could be the perfect choice.
Where? Various locations including Delamere Forest, Cheshire and Rivington, Lancashire.

2. Hole in One
Nothing makes a date better than a little competitiveness, and what better way to show off your skills then with a round of mini golf. Junkyard Golf Manchester is a 9 hole crazy golf course, put together using...you guessed it..JUNK! Not only that but factor in UV madness, booze, and 'hole' lot of fun, and you've got yourself a winner!
Where? Unit 1, First St, Manchester M15 4FN

3. Escape for the Evening
You'd have to have been living under a rock to have not heard about the World's newest form of live entertainment - Escape Rooms! Locked in a specially themed room, you and your partner will have to work together to find clues, solve riddles and find a way to get the hell out before the time ends. Luckily, Manchester has heaps of brilliant venues to choose from, you can check out some of our favourites here.
Where? Various locations.

4. We're Going on a Ghost Hunt
Okay so maybe not one for everyone, but our great city is loaded with fascinating history and one or two ghoulish and gory ghost stories along the way. You and your partner will become paranormal investigators for the night and find out whether there really is life after death. Simply Ghost Nights Manchester are a great one to try out if you're after a spooky night out.
Where? Various locations including Rycroft Hall, Hyde Town Hall, Ordsall Hall to name a few.

5. Love on the Ski Slopes
Another one for the more active couples, Chill Factore, Manchester is usually seen as a family day out, but it can be a great way to spend a fun day with just your other half. Why not take a ski lesson together? Or test your skills out snowboarding? Either way it's important to remember that Chill Factore is heaps of fun for us big kids too!
Where? Trafford Way, Trafford Quays Leisure Village Manchester M14 7JA

6. Shaker Maker
Sometimes it's just nice to go out for a quiet drink with our loved one and have a chat right? But why not spice things up a bit and become bar tenders yourselves! Learn how to mix up a Bond style Martini or a maybe a Margarita worthy of Carrie Bradshaw. Either way, Tiger Tiger Manchester have some awesome cocktail masterclasses available, so why not shake, stir and drink your way to a perfect date night.
Where? The Printworks, 27 Withy Grove, Manchester M4 2BS

7. Belly's Gonna Get Ya
We've given you a twist on the traditional date drinks, now how about a fun alternative to a meal out? If you and your partner think you've got what it takes, why not give one of Shooters Bar's Man Vs Food challenges a go? There's three to choose from, it's a guaranteed laugh, and fun night out, and best of all? If you're successful, the whole thing won't cost you a penny!

8. Let's Get Quizzical
Everyone loves a good pub quiz so what better way to spend an evening with your loved one than by glaring at each other for getting every question wrong. Manchester's Quizzimodo Night happens every Wednesday at Odd Bar and features a 'multimedia extravaganza of knowledge and stupidity.' There's pictionary, funny clips, factoids and bizarre cover versions- one things for sure, there's no other quiz quite like it.
Where? Odd Bar, 30-32 Thomas St, Manchester M4 1ER
