What ever happened to good old fashioned walking and talking? Edinburgh has some stunning scenery so take a stroll along the Water of Leith walkway and soak up the atmosphere.

Try Stargazing

Take part in a chocolate tasting class


Chocolate is the ultimate aphrodisiac, and let's be honest, eating loads of chocolate is most people's idea of a great day! Book yourself in at Coco in Bruntsfield for the ultimate date. 

Surround yourself with furry friends


Is your date an animal lover? Great! Edinburgh has it's very own cat cafe. Sit and have a coffee and a cake whilst relaxing with several feline friends!

Pair some fine wines and cheeses


Charm your date whilst indulging in some amazing wines and nibbling on some delicious meats, cheeses, pates and pickles. 

Watch the Sunset or Sunrise on Calton Hill


Watch the sun come up or go down - depending on whether you're a morning person or night-owl - and take in the views of our beautiful city.
