Love is in the air!

06/02/2017 Jo Bailey News

It’s coming up to that time of year again when we get to celebrate love. Valentine’s Day also called Saint Valentine’s Day originated in the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia, a fertility celebration commemorated annually.  On February 15th, Pope Gelasius I, recast this pagan festival as a Christian feast day circa 496, declaring February 14 to be St. Valentine’s Day.

So, now you know the history, here are some of our Valentine’s Day ideas!

Night in

Sometimes there is nothing better than a cosy night in. If you’re on a budget, why not treat your loved one to a takeaway or cook them up a tasty meal? It’s the thought that counts after all!

Night out

There is an array of places to take your loved one on Valentine’s Day. Bristol has its fair share of great places to eat from restaurants in Cabot Circus to the picturesque Waterfront. Bath is also a great city for a romantic night out with restaurants boasting a Michelin-starred chef to cosy pub settings that serves traditional hearty food!

Romantic walk

There is nothing better than a romantic stroll with your loved one. Bristol has many places to offer when it comes to walking from Ashton Court estate to The Docks in Bristol City Centre. If you’re looking for a romantic stroll in Bath our top picks are The Kennet & Avon Canal path and the Bath Skyline Walk.

Spa Day

If your loved one loves to be pampered, then a Spa day could be a great gift idea. Indulge on a relaxing spa day treat and unwind and de-stress.  Red Letter Days have some great offers on Spa Days and Vouchers.
