Dating in York: a city that inspires!

York singles, great matches and a haunting romance, with

Ancient and storied, York was significant enough to be the focus of Viking attacks back in the Dark Ages, and has been named the most haunted city in Europe.  So register with eHarmony, the dating website for York singles who are serious about romance, and take your date for a spookily good time at one of these scare spots. York dating will never be the same again!

1.       Flee the Legion.

Venture on a tour of the Treasurer's House next to the imposing York Minster.  This beautiful old medieval mansion has more ghosts than is good for the health of the living, as Roman Legionnaires have been spotted marching through the cellars.  The trip will thrill, and on finishing you will emerge into the (relatively) fresh air of the city centre, ready to gorge on one of the numerous stunning restaurants there.

2.       Ghosts of the Golden Fleece.

York's most haunted pub may be a trap for ghoul tourists, but the sheer atmosphere of the place is bound to wow you both.  Darkness lies in the corners and a skeleton sits at the bar.  On later dates you might even stay the night there, though be warned the place has no less than five spectres, and with some rooms being sited overlooking the Shambles, this could be a truly frightening experience.

3.       York's Most Haunted House

As with any spooky attraction, this is one for the imaginative.  The house at 35 Stonegate Street claims to be the most haunted in the city, and includes a séance room.  Go on a weekday for the two-for-one offer.  Dating in York has never been so terrifying!

Other stuff to do in York:

Ardent disbelievers have many other options for that successful date.  From York Art Gallery to the Theatre Royal, badminton at Energise to screaming on your chosen horse at the racecourse.  A sedate picnic in Dean's Gardens, to tea in the ultra-old fashioned Betty's, or something slicker and more filling at Go Down, one of a number of the many fantastic city centre restaurants.

Those looking for something different might instead try trekking with llamas at Nidderdale, along to the hulking silhouettes of the Brimham Rocks.  Professional singles with money to burn could hire their own for the day, and even give him a name.

Alternatively, hit the maize maze just outside of York for a simple but free dating experience - they also run pig racing if you've a sense of humour.  You should never forget the power of an evening cruise either - join one of the boats headed out along the city waterways for a pub lunch at the Ship Inn.  Finally, never forget seaside settlements like Whitby and Scarborough.  They're about an hour off by car, but if you're both local to York then the beach will make a nice change of scene.  National Parks like the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales are also great places for a picnic and a panorama.


As a leading York dating site eHarmony is perfectly equipped to find the most compatible matches possible - the ones you just can't stop dating, and could build something more with.  Why not register now, and tell us a bit about yourself.  It's free to review matches and you might well meet someone truly special.
