Is there any better time to fall for someone than around Christmas? When the weather is crisp, the streets are filled with lights and open fires roar in the hearths of cosy pubs across the country.
There’s every excuse to get swept away in the romance of it all, even if you’ve only just met your match after a few clicks of the mouse and some casual chat.
It’s easy to get stuck in a dating rut, meeting your prospective partners at the same bars, coffee shops and cafés. But the best way to really get to know each other on a first date is to do something together, be it falling with style in the middle of an ice rink or getting pine needles stuck in your hair during an afternoon fashioning a festive wreath.
Here, we’ve picked some of the best activities across the UK for you to try out for truly memorable experiences, whether your date turns out to be "the one" or just another one. If you’re not blasting out Mariah and sipping on mulled wine afterwards? We doubt you ever will.
