The sun has finally made an appearance. Can we get a Hell yeah? While Spring has sprung and the days are officially longer and warmer, dating in the capital couldn’t be more welcome. With the hottest April in 70+ years, the rising temperatures are just what we all need to get us into the mood for the summer season just around the corner! The loss of an hour’s sleep has soon been forgotten as the days creep ever longer and the opportunities for dates outside in the light increase, day on day. With oodles of spring dating ideas, why not read on and discover the fun you can have outside with a little imagination.
Spring time activities
We may not get the sunshine very often, but when we do, there are plenty of outdoor activities to keep you and your latest love interest. From a stroll around the city’s most famous park to outdoor swimming, cycling and foraging – here’s how to show someone a good time in sunny London. Of course, there are plenty of activities to choose from, many which are free and simple to organise, saving you time, money and hassle! And it’s true- London really is the best place to be in the Spring, Summer, and well - the whole year through.
With so much also going on, why not take the time to take things down a gear and go back to basics. Enjoy the fresh air and being around like minded singles, all while the sun is shining. It can’t really get much better can it?
Canal Walks in London
London’s canal system is a marvel of industrial engineering. Over 200 years old, it no longer acts as a commercial artery into the heart of London from the countryside, but instead has become a network of thoroughly pleasant waterside paths. Absolutely free of charge and great for your lungs, there couldn’t be a nicer place to stroll about in the sunshine. Perfect for this time of year with lighter evenings and the rising temperatures to put you in a good mood, all day!
With London finally getting a look in from the sun, pool your resources, get outdoors and dive into one of the city's best outdoor swimming spots. With over 10+ outdoor swimming pools, the capital is the perfect place to cool down and plan ahead for the sunshine as the summer creeps around the corner.
Visit London's best historic sites, houses and palaces
There's nothing like London's historic houses in the sunshine: from Hampstead to Richmond, from Barking to Kensington and even in the city, there are so many beautiful places to indulge in a bit of ye olde luxury. And with it being lighter for longer, you can take it your beautiful surroundings for even longer!
And for something a little different, but oh so cool why not try...foraging? If you’ve never been foraging, it might be just what you need to mix up your dating schedule. Foraging has been popular for some years now, with enthusiasm for gathering food from wild and natural places only increasing. So, why not get out in the sunshine and find yourself a foraging group in London so you can pick your own fruit from trees in the capital with your new love interest, or just because? Not beats getting back to nature and enjoying the
Be open to trying anything
Spring is a time to let loose and try new things. Rather than spending the next two months waiting for Mr or Mrs Right to come along, try dating against-type, asking someone out you might normally not talk to or simply spending time with new people - you never know what can happen! This also means saying yes to invitations from friends - for anything from camping trips to house parties. The more you’re open to things, the more fun you’ll have. With the sun shining and beautiful blue skies everywhere, now is the time to start making plans for the here and now.
