Take your pick from our list of delectable dinners, thoughtful treats and gorgeous gifts in SoGlos’s romantic handpicked selection.
Impress your Valentine with a ride on Cheltenham’s observation wheel. Standing at 35-meters tall in the town’s Imperial Gardens, the wheel is part of the Light Up Cheltenham event, which will see a number of the town’s landmark buildings illuminated in colour.
The three-week festival will even see buildings lit red for Valentine’s Day, so expect spectacular views as you cosy up to your loved one on a 10-minute ride through the skies – and perhaps a marriage proposal with a difference? The 10-minute ride costs £6 for adults, £5 for children and £18 for families of four.
Take a romantic trip to the top of Gloucester Cathedral, where you can enjoy breath-taking views for miles across the historic city.
Finished in 1460, the tower is 225 feet high and has 269 steps. Once you’ve made the journey to the top, enjoy a glass of prosecco, or a non-alcoholic alternative, while taking in the stunning views.
Tickets for this experience cost £16.76 per person and can be purchased from the Cathedral gift shop or online.
Get fancy at Woodchester Valley’s Valentine’s event, where couples will get to taste a delicious range of chocolates paired with the perfect wine.

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a twist this year at Sudeley Castle’s murder mystery evening. In between courses of the Victorian-themed dinner, work out who pulled the trigger and put your detective skills to the test.
The historic surroundings of the castle provide an excellent location to work out whodunit, with couples invited to dress up in Victorian finery to really make the most of the evening.
