Romantic Autumn Date Ideas


Whether you’re at the beginning of your love story or looking to reignite the spark, explore our top 10 romantic autumn date ideas:


  • 1. Get your Walking Boots on
  • Simple, free and fun: a walk in the autumn leaves is a chance to reconnect and get away from the hectic ‘nine-to-five’. Grab your partner (or the whole family) and spend a day outdoors.
  • 2. Treat Yourself
  • Warm up with a pumpkin latte, or one of the many other autumnal special drinks you may have seen popping up in the last few weeks. After all that walking, you could even treat yourselves to a slice of cake too!
  • 3. Movie Night
  • Everyone has a series they’ve been desperate to binge-watch, or a classic film they know word-for-word. Indulge in a takeaway, cosy up with a blanket and relax. Netflix also has a 30-day free trial period offer!
  • 4. Halloween Party
  • Get creative and dress up as your favourite spooky character for Halloween! Whether you’ll be spending the night dancing away, or taking the kids trick-or-treating, Halloween is a chance to dress up, have fun and, most importantly, consume masses of guilt-free confectionary.
  • 5. Visit a Festival
  • Pull on your wellies and head out for a day at a Harvest festival. This is not only a fun day out, but a great way to support your local community. Check out this handy guide by The Guardian to find one near you!
  • 6. Keep the Spark Alive
  • A little way in advance, but it’s not too early to start planning your Bonfire night! Wrap up and find your local fireworks display for a romantic evening under the stars. If you are planning on holding your own event, please stay safe and read these helpful guidelines.
  • 7. Pumpkin Carving
  • Pumpkin carving is a great opportunity to get into the Halloween spirit. You could either team up with your partner to create a design, or make a competition out of it (the loser must clean up the mess!).
  • 8. Autumn Escape
  • If you’re looking for a more extravagant autumn event, you may want to consider booking a romantic getaway. Whether you’d like to jet off for a European adventure or get lost in the UK countryside, everyone could do with a little holiday every now and then. So put your phone on silent, and set off with your partner for a romantic escape.
  • 9. Ready, Steady, Cook!
  • As the nights draw in, it can be tempting to reach for the takeaway menu. Instead, why not try cooking your evening meal together? Check out this BBC Good Food page for over 700 hearty, autumnal meal ideas. We’ll let you decide who does the washing up…
  • 10. Set Pulses Racing
