WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre
Head to the WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre for a date in Lancashire to see all of the wildlife such as the flamingos, otters and white storks. The nature reserve is teamed with wildlife and it’s a great place for a first date out in the open air to remember.
If you’re one of Lancashire singles and looking for somewhere to take a stroll, one of my favourite places is Southport, the beach is simply stunning and is an ideal place for a romantic date. Home to the country’s second-longest pier the coastal views are perfect. Grab a thermos flask full of hot chocolate and get wrapped up for great views and a date to remember.
This spectacular Grade I listed building is located high on a hill, deep in the heart of Lancashire and is not only picturesque, it is enchanting and a super romantic spot if you enjoy a bit of hill walking and beautiful scenery.
The Ribble Valley is Lancashire’s capital of love and romance, especially if you and your date are fans of country walks. With a selection of walks to explore and the added bonus of there being plenty of places to feast on local delights, it truly is a great day out.
Who doesn’t love a day out at the zoo? There is something magical about going to the zoo on a date, and with plenty to see and the unpredictability of the animals you and your date will have plenty to talk about, so if you are worried about any awkward silences then the zoo is a great first date idea.
Owned by Queen Elizabeth II, through the Duchy of Lancaster, Lancaster Castle is a wealth of English history and a great place for a date in Lancashire. Since being established by the Romans the castle has been a home to monarchs, as well as a place of trial and execution, and even was a working prison right up until 2012.
It is, however, still a crown court, and the majority of the castle is now open to the public for the first time in over 1,000 years. Currently, due to COVID-19 restrictions in place and the ongoing restoration work in the Shire Hall, all of Lancaster Castle’s guided tours have been suspended until January 2021. Never the less, the courtyards are open and free to visit but sadly there is no access to any of the buildings at the moment.
