Summer Lovin’

Whether you’re planning a date night with a partner, or trying to impress someone new, we have created some unique date ideas across the city this July. These of course don’t need to be with a romantic partner and can easily be enjoyed with friends too.

Late at the Lawn

The Lawn Café by Stokes is no longer just a daytime café – they have introduced a new, relaxed and cosy dining experience every Friday and Saturday evening from 6pm until late. With delicious cocktails, drinks and small plates, this is the ultimate intimate date night choice.

Cornhill Cove

This seaside style pop-up bar with bespoke crazy golf course in the heart of the city is a great fun-filled option for a casual date. With yummy street food and ice cream vendors alongside pop-up entertainment and performances from live DJs, musicians, street theatre and more, Cornhill Cove is a great date option this summer.

Brayford Belle

Lincoln boat trips aren’t just for tourists! Sit back, relax, and enjoy the sights of Lincoln from a different perspective aboard a 50-minute guided canal trip with entertaining commentary about Lincoln’s past and present. Feeling like a romantic stroll around the city is becoming a little repetitive? Then why not take to the waters instead.

Axed Lincoln

If something adrenaline fuelled is more your style, how about axe throwing? This exciting attraction will give you plenty of chances to impress your date whilst sharing in lots of laughs. Book a 60-minute session to get your blood pumping by swinging 1.25lbs of forged steel at timber targets in a lively and urban venue, spurred on by an upbeat playlist.

Lincoln Ghost Walk

Want the intimacy of watching a spooky film together in real-life? Then the award-winning Lincoln Ghost Walk is the choice for you. Cuddle up to your date and hear about the city’s haunting stories and supernatural past as you take a stroll along the cobbled streets after dark, learning about Lincoln’s infamous ghosts and ghouls…

Lincoln Jazz Café

One of Lincoln’s best kept secrets, this intimate Jazz Café is a taste of nostalgia. Tucked away on small road in the city centre, it boasts an extensive drinks menu and impressive cocktails with great music. They welcome the UK’s best Jazz and Swing musicians onto their stage every week so you can truly immerse yourself into the atmosphere of a bygone era.

Arcade Warehouse

Want to relive your youth or try something new? Why not go old-school and visit Lincoln’s Arcade Warehouse. With a set entry fee of just £9 per person for a 2-hour session and all games free to play once inside, you more than get your money’s worth. With retro arcade games, air hockey, pool tables, VR systems, basketball machines and more, there is plenty of fun to be had whilst letting yourself feel young and carefree again for the night.
