Looking for something different to enjoy with your loved one on Valentine’s Day? Berkshire has the answers
See the snowdrops
Enjoy a romantic stroll together and take in the views of the snowdrops at this time of year. The Beech Woods at Welford Park are worth a visit, and there are also paths along the River Lambourn that you can take. Don't leave without having a cup of tea in The Old Laundry Tearoom and Heated Marquee. And make sure you take a detour through the gift shop, where everything features a snowdrop.
Relax at a spa
Treat your loved one to a day at The Langley spa. Relax in the vitality pool or recline on one of the heated loungers, then enjoy lunch in Cedar. On 29 February, join them for a wedding showcase and see all their amazing spaces dressed for the occasion.
Spend the day together while enjoying a Vineyard Tour & Wine Tasting at Stanlake Park. Discover the history of one of the oldest wineries in England, learn how wine is made and taste generous samples of award-winning English wines.
Get on down to the music
Love music? This event at the Madejski Stadium brings you the best of Soul, RnB, RareGroove, Reggae, Lovers and Revivals.
Enjoy a romantic ride
Head to Windsor Great Park and take a ride on a horse-drawn carriage with Ascot Carriages. Carriage tours start from outside the Savill Building at the Savill Garden. Your carriage driver/guide can provide history and fill you in on some lesser-known facts about this beautiful Royal park. Snuggle up under the rug for a true romantic experience.

Make some frilly knickers
Spend the evening with brilliant company, a glass of fizz and some giggles whilst making a gorgeous pair of frilly cotton knickers at Sewisfaction Sewing Studio at Holme Grange Craft Village in Wokingham.
Get ready to boogie at this funk-tastic, feelgood '70s and '80s night. Party with those you love at Haven't Stopped Dancing Yet! Disco Love fest. There's dancer-led 'line-ups' to get you into the groove, prizes for the best retro outfits and eco-glitter face-painting for added disco sparkle, plus free sweets and ice pops.
Treat the foodie in your life
Cosy up by the fire and enjoy a one-off Valentine's menu cooked by Head Chef Karim Senaini and his talented brigade in the kitchen at the charming countryside pub, the Crown & Garter, Inkpen.
