Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and with it falling on a Wednesday this year, you may be struggling for ideas. Here are our favourite places to visit around Birmingham to help you design the perfect romantic day out.
We’ve also created an exclusive Itihaas Valentine’s Day menu, filled with delectable dishes for you and your other half. It may be mid-week but that doesn’t stop the romance at Itihaas, with a candlelit table and 3 course, exclusive menu just for you.
Stroll the Canals
Walk up an appetite along many of Birmingham’s peaceful canals and take advantage of a few of the bars along the way, you will soon be ready for a delicious Indian feast at Itihaas Indian Restaurant.
Ikon is an independent art gallery in Brindley Place. Their current exhibition for February 2024 is from British-Jamaican artist Exodus Crooks, exploring themes of domesticity, care, tenderness and reimagination. As part of Ikon’s 60th Anniversary year, this exhibition is perfect for quiet contemplation of what it means to love.
The epitome of fun date ideas: Golf Fang is mini-golf all grown up. Head to Digbeth to take in the vibrant graffiti artwork, listen to a live DJ and play a truly unique take on 18-hole mini golf.
