Our Newcastle Guide To Celebrating Valentine’s Day In Lockdown

From lush dinners and date night adventures, to tasty tipples and gorgeous gift ideas, we've rounded up an abundance of NE1-inspired ways to spend the most romantic day of the year...


Gorgeous gifting >> 



Go beyond the standard 'to the one I love' Valentine’s card this year. We’re talking northern banter, gooey romance and laugh-out-loud humour! Whatever it is you’re looking for, the friendly folk at Geordie Gifts have got you covered to help you do Valentine’s Day the Geordie way!





Nothing says 'I love you' like a beautiful bouquet. So, go ahead and make their day this year with a fantastic floral fusion from our pals at 5th Avenue Flowers. A gorgeous selection of hand-tied bundles of the finest flowers are available in a range of colours, styles and price points. Got a special requirement in mind? Give the talented team a shout and they will use their expertise to transform your vision into perfect blooms!



Dine in >>




Add a bit of heat, spice and all things nice to your Valentine’s plans with My Delhi’s DIY Spice Kits. Cook up an authentic Indian curry from the comfort of your own home with a helping hand from their delicious new recipe kits. Think Hello Fresh, but with a lovely, local twist! Each kit comes complete with the spice mix which is handpicked, roasted and freshly ground by their incredible chef, along with a recipe card and an instructional video. Not up for cooking? No worries. Simply order your favourite dishes from the menu for delivery or collection.




Staying in is the new going out! If like us, you’ve missed your Dobson & Parnell foodie fix, you’ll be glad to know that you can get those restaurant flavours delivered to your door this romantic season. You and your special someone can choose from a range of restaurant-quality dishes; from aged beef wellington to garlic and herb butter langoustines and sticky toffee pudding, there’s something to get your taste buds tingling this Valentine’s Day. Head online, book your time slot and get ready for flavours that will fill your heart and tummies with a whole 'lotta love!



Diary dates >>




Unleash your wild side and share an experience with the one you love! While heading for the open water isn’t permitted on your Valentine’s agenda right now, you can certainly plan ahead and celebrate your love at a later date. Whether it’s kayaking down the River Tyne or taking part in one of their expertly crafted guided tours, CBK Adventures guarantees laughs, happiness and memories.




Plan ahead and show them you care with a night at the theatre. We may be in lockdown, but that doesn’t mean you can skip the romance! Nothing says 'I love you' like a steamy, hilarious broadway classic, coming to the city in 2021! This July, Kiss Me Kate will be brought to life on the Theatre Royal stage with choreography by Strictly Come Dancing's Oti Mabuse and some of the greatest show tunes of all time by the legendary Cole Porter. This one’s not to be missed!



Raise a glass >>




A boozy Valentine’s Day anyone? If craft beer is the key to your heart then Wylam Brewery’s selection of IPAs, ales and stouts promise to get you in the spirit. Whether you’re looking to treat the one you love to these cool and quirky beers, or simply stock up on your favourite flavours ahead of the big day, you can do so by placing your order via the online store.




Get glammed up, the dining room awaits! Our pals at Revolución de Cuba have done the hard work for you this Valentine’s Day. Choose your favourite cocktail to be handmade by the mixologists using premium spirits and fresh ingredients. The oh-so tasty tipple will then be delivered to your door, chilled and ready for you to serve over ice and enjoy!



Celebrating singles >>



Who said Valentine’s Day was about loving other people? Self care is most definitely on this year’s agenda! Wrap up warm and head out for pretty views and city lights. Put yourself first, spend time with your thoughts and think about what truly makes you happy as you stroll along our beloved Quayside.




Being single doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. It’s time to celebrate you and there's no better way than by treating yourself to some luxury chocolates delivered to your door! Time to settle in with a glass of the good stuff, pop on your fave bingeworthy TV show and tuck in.
