The All-Weather Guide to Dating in Birmingham

With more trees than Paris and more miles of canal than Venice; Birmingham is a city that’s full of surprises! Unfortunately, being in England, we can’t always guarantee the clear skies our continental cousins are accustomed to; but this shouldn’t get in the way of our dynamic dating lives! So, whether it’s for a promising first date or blossoming romance, we’ve compiled a list of great dating in Birmingham ideas – whatever the weather may be:


Let’s begin with the inevitable; with around 200 days of rain per year we’re more than likely to come up against a wet-weekend or two; but don’t let that ruin your fun! Birmingham is celebrated for its extensive and eclectic collection of pubs and bars. Rainy days were made to be spent indoors, listening to rainfall on the roof above. The Wellington, a specialist real ale pub, is renowned for its snug and rustic feel. A pub lunch followed by an afternoon of good conversation, board games and Black Country ale could be the perfect Birmingham dating backdrop to your budding romance.


There are over 35 miles of canals in Birmingham. They form much of the character of the city. You can get a pretty good taste of the canal side atmosphere by heading to the Gas Street Basin or Brindley Place but for the best results, why not take your date for a night time trip on one of the pleasure cruisers that depart from Broad St. A leisurely drift beneath the stars will give you plenty of time to really connect.


A gentle gust presents the perfect excuse for a free dating idea and an afternoon of kite flying in Sutton Park. If it’s a little chilly you could always fend off those goose-bumps by huddling up tight, but if conditions worsen you may want to retreat to one of the cities many indoor pursuits. Birmingham Museum and Art gallery, housed in a spectacular Victorian building, has an extensive collection of beautiful Pre-Raphaelite work, which will certainly serve as a strong talking point. But if your sweetie has a sweet tooth, head to Cadbury World where you can play in chocolate rain and make your very own delicious creations to give to one other.


Birmingham is a stunning city in every season and the winter months are no exception; seeing the magnificent Victoria Square transformed into a traditional Bavarian wonderland. Brought to life with rich seasonal aromas, ethereal lighting, and picturesque wooden chalets offering traditional handcrafted gifts, food and drink. Taking your one of your matches here is sure to make for a magical and unforgettable Birmingham dating experience whether you’re wandering through the stalls together tasting Glühwein (German mulled wine), traditional sausages, sweets and pastries or just sitting by the fountain soaking up the atmosphere.
