February 14th is one of the most special days of the year. Love is in the air; flower shops are empty, and restaurants are bubbling with red love-shaped balloons. Of course, you and your partner would want to experience all the bliss, romance and tears of joy that come with being together on valentine’s day.
This special day means everyone who has a partner is looking to create that perfect Valentine’s experience for their moon and stars. If you do find yourself in Norfolk with your better half on this precious day, there are four amazing things to do in Norfolk on Valentines Day!
Have Dinner at a Local Restaurant
Dinner at Norfolk is not like your regular restaurant visits. While you breathe in the relaxing air with your date, treat yourself to something new by trying the local cuisines.
If you’re a local, then you already know that the Cromer Crab is a must have! This is one of Norfolk’s most popular dishes, it may look like other crabs but trust us when we say it tastes spectacularly different!
Who says you can only have great turkey at thanksgiving? Well, not at Norfolk! The Norfolk black turkey is a must taste staple. Of course, add a bottle of fine wine, and you’ll have yourself the finest valentine dinner ever.
The top local restaurants/pubs in Norfolk you can visit include; Ribs of Beef (AKA the Norwich City favourite local). The Old Bank; old indeed with its ancient exterior, gives extra romantic vibes.
You might love this idea if you think dinner at a restaurant is cliché. Suit up (not literally) and prepare yourself for the most romantic experience.
Take a trip through the riverside down Norwich and enjoy the scenery, paddle slowly and stare at the glowing face of your partner. Norfolk Paddle Boards will give you all the training and equipment necessary to have a swell time.
If you’re not into paddling but the water calls you for a romantic evening, try the Wroxham Boat Hire. Carry a picnic, sit on the river bank and chill while the sun bathes your skin. What’s more romantic than feeding the ducks together?
Take a Walk and Enjoy the Scenery
After a romantic dinner, take a walk around the beautiful cobbled streets of Norwich, enjoy the artistic North Norfolk coastline and talk about the one million things you love about your partner’s eyes.
The Norwich cathedral is there to serve as a picturesque backdrop, and the Gregorian Houses will make everything feel surreal.
Taking walks have been the sweetest thing since the onset of romantic occurrences, you can never go wrong with it. It’s a great way to conclude the special valentine’s day.
Yes, you read that right! It may not be your first option but trust us when we say The Bowling House Norwich has the complete valentine package. You will have a full night of absolute fun, from the beautiful restaurant to the karaoke room and the bowling alley.
Enjoy a peaceful dinner, then stroll to the bowling alley and have raw, undiluted fun. Go sing your soul out at karaoke when you’re done hitting the pins. Nothing screams romance like a well-planned night; you know your partner will fall even deeper in love.
