• Il Padrino
• The Beth Chatto Gardens
• Essex Wine School

Il Padrino

There is nothing like a great meal in good company and if you fancy the idea of a nice Italian meal, Il Padrino is the place to be in Colchester. There is a crackling atmosphere in the venue which immediately puts people at ease, so if you are looking to relax with your date, the slightly rustic charm of this restaurant will provide you with the perfect platform for a brilliant night out. Whether you want to wax lyrical about the Roman history of Colchester and its links to modern day, or you just want a romantic night out in a great setting, this is a fine option.

The Beth Chatto Gardens

If you find that heading to the High Street for a date is a bit too busy and offering little chance to get to know someone, you may want to head to a quieter and more calming location. The Beth Chatto Gardens features 7.5 acres of luscious greenery, idyllic lakes and plenty of stunning plants and flowers to give you plenty to talk about. There is also a tearoom if you want to take a break from walking and get to know your date over a cup of tea and a scone! There’s also a chance to buy plants, flowers and seeds so to impress your date in style, allow them to pick a blooming great gift.

Essex Wine School

While many people suggest that having a few drinks is the ideal way to get to know your date, just having a drink can be a bit dull or bland. If you want to relax, get to know someone and feel as though you are learning something fun, pop along to the Essex Wine School. There is a wide range of courses and classes, all of which come with ample time for tasting, testing and chatting, so for a great date in a relaxed environment, with wine on hand if needs be, for singles in Colchester, this may be the most fun you’ve ever had at school.
