Historically, on Valentine's Day we have celebrated love and the person that we are with, want to be with or care about. Whether this be through the exchanging of cards or gifts or spending the day just being together, the 14th February is renowned for being expensive. But it doesn't have to be Patsy Boaler-Hysett shares a few ideas of what you can do this year that won't break the bank.
You do not have to go out or do anything unusual or extraordinary to have a romantic day with your loved one on Valentine's Day. Something as simple as spending the day cuddled up on the sofa watching films can just as easily do the trick. With the likes of Netflix, Blinkbox and Sky Movies, there are plenty of ways you can access some brilliant films! You could even pop down to the local film rental and see what they have to offer.
Romantic Walk around Sudbury.
We are lucky enough to have plenty of picturesque places to walk where we live so why not wrap up warm and enjoy a romantic walk this Valentine's Day. You could set out across the common lands and perhaps stop off at The Mill Hotel to warm up and indulge in a mug of hot chocolate.
If you're interested in art or the history of Sudbury, going to Gainsborough's House this Valentine's Day would be ideal for you. At £6.50 for an Adult, this is a romantic idea that isn't likely to put you out of pocket too much! Take your partner and go and have a look at the impressive works of Thomas Gainsborough and the beautiful garden.
Ten Pin Bowling.
If you're looking for something more active to do, why not pay a visit to Strikes on Northern Road. If you and your partner have a competitive streak, keep them on their pins and have a game of bowling. If that doesn't tickle your fancy Strike also offers laserquest and numerous arcade games.
If you're wanting to spend your Valentine's evening listening to music with your loved one, you are spoiled for choice this year! The Rock Choir are performing at 7.30pm at The Quay Theatre (tickets £10) if you're interested in pop, Motown and chart songs. If organ music is more your thing, why not buy tickets (£7.50 each) for an hour of Organ Music with Tom Cogan at St. Gregory's Church.
Round of Golf.
Why not head down to Old Joe's Golfing Range and try your golfing skills. With the option of a 9 Hole Course (£7.00), an 18 Hole Course (£13.00) or the Driving Range(£2.50 for 20 balls), Old Joe's provides a great opportunity for you to spend quality time with your partner doing something you can both enjoy!
