Valentine's Fair

With free admission and over 70 rides and attractions, Leeds’ Valentine’s Fair is a great excuse for a day of fun with your partner. Show your competitive side with the Fair’s games; demonstrate a need-for-speed or thrill-seeking attitude with one of many rides; and dig into some classic fairground food.

The grounds are also only a short distance from Leeds Station, making travel to and from the area as easy as possible. If you want to make it easier, an anytime ticket from Northern will get you into the city whenever you want to be there.

Electric Shuffle Galentine's Brunch

Starting at £30 per person with a whole bottle of prosecco for each person, a bottomless selection of pizza, and a sampler of electric shuffleboard. 

You’ll split your time between the shuffleboard and the bar with an hour at each, allowing you to claim glory at the board and then toast your victory (or gloat) with your friends or beau. Head with your gang and take advantage of Northern’s group tickets, or take your partner on 1-on-1, and look into Northern’s duo tickets.

Belgrave Feast

If you’re looking for something more chilled out, Belgrave Feast is the place for you. With a diverse selection of vegan food available on the 10th of February, you can try to keep up your Veganuary ambitions with this divine selection. 

Even if you and your partner are willing omnivores, you can still spoil your tastebuds with a variety of flavours. Spend your Valentine’s Day in Leeds experiencing tastes from the world over with the help of Northern and an advance ticket, allowing you to book as early as you please.

Meanwood Valley Urban Farm

As long as you’re no stranger to mud, or at the very least not fearful, Meanwood Valley Urban Farm is a great choice for a date on the cheaper side. However, you’ll fight for your date’s affection with the adorable inhabitants of the farm, including: alpacas, goats, pigs, cows, and many small animals.

As well as the cute animals, the farm has a coffee shop with a delicious menu and top-quality coffee. If you’re running out of time to find a date spot, look no further than Meanwood, and don’t worry about leaving travel to the final hour as Northern has you covered with cheap same day tickets up to 5 minutes before departure.

The Ivy

The pinnacle of upmarket romantic dining. The Ivy offers a 3-course Valentine’s Day set menu from £75 per person between the 10th and 15th of February. 

Start your evening with a glass of prosecco rosé then move on to courses of prawns, a selection of 3 main courses of beef, lobster, and sweet potato curry, and then to top it all off, a shared dessert of parfait, sorbet, and truffles. A dining experience you won’t soon forget, book a table as early as you can and save on travel with a Northern advance ticket.
