Romance doesn’t need to be expensive! We’ve already written about free date ideas but thought a follow up on free date spots may be helpful! There are some prime free date sports across the country. If you see one you love but it is a bit further away from you then why not plan that in to the date? Make a day of it!

Pick A Geocaching Spot Near You

Let your inner adventurous child shine through by joining the world’s biggest treasure hunt as a date idea. There are spots to do this across the country (and world) so this is a good one to start with!

Start your planning by downloading the Geocaching app (it’s free, of course!). You can now browse the app to find routes and adventure around you so you don’t need to travel the length of the country for this fun date.

Put some drinks in your bag and off you go to create memories, laugh and work together on this memorable, free date.


Table Tennis on Soho Square

Positioned off Oxford Street, Soho Square is a little haven among the retail madness! A lovely place for a picnic in the summer as you watch the characters of Soho go about their business. There is no shortage of beautiful picnic spots in the country so the reason that Soho Square got the nod for this article was because of its free-to-use table tennis table! 

Bring your A-game and duel with your date over a game of table tennis. Volley chat back and forth during a free game that will undoubtedly make you laugh and find out how competitive your partner is! 

Once the game is up, sit back on the bench and grab a drink to relive the game one ball at a time! Tip: there is a Tesco a couple of minutes away if you want a drink without paying Soho prices for a pint! 

Borough Market, London 

Share the sights, sounds and tastes of the world-famous Borough Market in London. You don’t need to buy overpriced paella to enjoy Borough Market as simply walking around the stalls is a treat for all of your senses!

There are endless amounts of samples to try as you go around and it’s a great time to learn more about each others interests in culture and travel! Seeing, smelling and tasting food will conjure up memories of holidays, experiences or events that will keep the chat flowing. 

Borough Market is in a prime position at the heart of London so a stroll down the river before or after your foodie adventure will give you the chance to carry on what was already started! All of this and your wallet or purse has stayed firmly closed.

Broad Sands, North Devon

You can thank Mother Nature for this freebie! If you can get to this part of the country, Broad Sands will reward you with stunning coves and caves to explore with your date. Secluded bays like Broad Sands are incredibly memorable. The turquoise water glistens while you kick back and  take in the views (and company, of course).

There is no entry fee, no ice cream seller, just you, your date and nature's finest work!
