7 alternative Valentine’s dates in Manchester

1 year ago

If you’re the kind of couple who bond better over beating each other at video games than you do over a romantic dinner, this is the list for you.

We’ve picked out seven places to go for Valentine’s Day in Manchester (and none of them involve sharing your pudding or listening to twinkly piano music).

From axe-throwing to Squid Gaming to gladiator duelling, love is a battlefield. Go to war against each other. Tear each other’s hearts out. You can always make it up later once you get home.

    Hearing the thud of axes can be a little unnerving as you leave the cinema in the Great Northern – especially after a slasher film – but the axe throwing at Whistle Punks is about letting off steam not cutting off limbs.

    It’s competitive and a bit like darts really, only you’re throwing whacking great axes at the target instead. A bullseye with an axe is very satisfying indeed.
