10 ways to treat your Valentine in Gloucestershire

From gorgeous getaways to delectable dinners, SoGlos rounds-up 10 ways to treat your Valentine in Gloucestershire.

With everything from wining and dining your other half to treating them to a gorgeous gift, we’ve rounded up 10 ways to treat your Valentine in Gloucestershire.

Take your pick from our list of delectable dinners, thoughtful treats and gorgeous gifts in SoGlos’s romantic handpicked selection.


1. Take in an extraordinary view of Cheltenham


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.


2. Valentine's Tower Tour at Gloucester Cathedral


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.


3. Valentine’s Day at Woodchester Valley

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.

Arrive at 6pm and be welcomed with a glass of sparkling rosé and, with a chance to relax in the tasting room and treat yourselves to your favourite bottle afterwards.


4. Valentine’s Day Mascara at Sudeley Castle

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.


5. Galentine's Day at Cosy Club

Get your gal pals together on Thursday 13 February 2020 and enjoy any six tapas dishes and four cocktails for £48 at Cosy Club Cheltenham – because who said Valentine’s was just for couples?

From Passionfruit Mojito to Cosy Colada, Vanilla Espresso Martini to Grapefruit and Rosemary Paloma, Cosy Club in The Brewery Quarter has a delicious selection of cocktails to choose from. And the tapas dishes are pretty tasty too, serving the likes of tempura kind prawns, crispy sesame chicken, halloumi sticks, harissa-roasted vegetables and more.


6. Where There is Light at Gloucester Cathedral

Experience a unique sight – and get a great Instagram pic – at this stunning art installation, coming to Gloucester Cathedral from Thursday 16 January to Sunday 23 February 2020.

Where There is Light is an immersive walkthrough exhibition that will be installed in the Cathedral’s Lady Chapel – a quirky activity for couples celebrating Valentine’s Day.


7. Indulge in a spa day at Hatherley Manor Hotel and Spa


Relax and unwind in the tranquillity of Gloucester’s Hatherley Manor Spa this Valentine’s Day.

Treat that someone special to the Spa Date Night package, which includes a 55-minute treatment per person, dinner in the Dewinton Restaurant with a bottle of wine, overnight accommodation and a delicious breakfast the next morning.

During both days, guests have full access to the spa and its facilities, making for a relaxing Valentine’s weekend. Prices are from £220 per guest per night.


8. Valentine’s Dinner at Mercure Gloucester Bowden Hall

What better way to celebrate Valentine’s than over a delicious dinner for two?

Serving three courses, a bottle of prosecco and coffee and chocolates, Mercure Gloucester Bowden Hall’s Valentine’s dinner will be accompanied by live music.

The evening costs £36 per person and, if couples want to make a night of it, residential packages start at £129.
