Dating is a minefield on a good day, but when you are new to the area it can be even more so. I moved last year from just outside London, down to the South West. All the places I would usually go are no longer local and I’m discovering a new way and pace of life.
As I don’t know anyone in this part of the world, the first thing I did was to look for a local dating site by searching online for a Cornwall dating site. There are loads of national dating sites, but there are also plenty of local ones like dating sites in Cornwall.
Once you’ve found someone you want to date, there’s plenty of unusual places to go for a date. It will make it that bit more memorable and probably more enjoyable. Some of my favourite places in this part of the world are visiting one of the many beautiful Cornwall beaches. Perhaps this is best reserved for the summer and when the weather isn’t too bad, but it’s definitely a great option, whether for a walk or a picnic. If you are on a budget these are great options, and so is using free dating sites to find the person you want to go there with. If you are in that part of the world you really have to go to Lands End. It’s one of the most famous locations in the UK and a photo with the famous sign is an absolute must for many tourists visiting that part of the country. Another weather dependent option is one of the many stunning and scenic coastal walks. Other great things to do are the Tamar Otter & Wildlife Centre in Launceston and the St Austell Brewery in, funnily enough, St Austell. There are also plenty of really interesting museums in the area such as Penlee House Gallery & Museum and the Mevegissey Museum. One of my absolutely favourite museums is the Pirates Quest in Newquay. I’ve always been obsessed with everything pirate related and the pirate guide is brilliant fun. You need to book in advance but it is totally worth it.
Looking for something more usual – how about the Eden Project? The Eden Project is a world famous attraction that opened it’s doors to the public on St Patrick’s day (17th March) 2001. There are biomes and outdoor gardens, as well as a beautiful rainforest canopy walkway. It has England’s longest zip wire too if you want to add a bit of adventure into your date. There’s also plenty of things to do with the kids should you decide to visit with family instead. There is a soft play centre for the little ones, a climbing frame for the adventurous slightly bigger kids called The Nest. There’s plenty of space to run around and burn off energy so they are bound to have a great time. All the fresh air and learning opportunities make it a wonderful place to go, whether on a date, on your own, or in a big family group.
