Top ideas for Valentines breaks

Whether you and your partner have been together a few months or for forty years, you should spoil them on 14 February. And Valentines breaks are the perfect way to do so!

Do something they like. If, for example, they love animals, a great idea is to surprise them with "zoo keeper for the day" experience. Many zoos around the UK offer this package, including London Zoo. What better way to spend Valentines Day than cleaning out cages (ahem...)? And remember, Valentines is a day to be together, so you will have to get your hands dirty too! You and your significant other can get up close to your favourite animals - perhaps see a lion being trained, feed monkeys, meet the penguins and more. This is a day that they will treasure for years, and that makes it much more romantic than going out for dinner.

redletterdays.co.uk is a great site to check out for more ideas. You can get days out racing Ferraris, scuba diving, dolphin watching, spa days, go up in a hot air balloon or even go for a tandem skydive. Breaks and fun days out like these are much better than the usual Valentines Day presents - it is a day you spend together doing something you love, and you won't ever forget it.

If you are looking for extended Valentines breaks away, the world is really your oyster. Go to the most romantic city in the world and spend the weekend in Paris, or simply rent a secluded cottage in the countryside and get away from it all with your partner. One piece of advice though... book early!

skyscanner.net is a fantastic site to check to get the best deals on flights. premiercottages.co.uk is a great way to find a cottage right across the UK and Ireland.

Have a great day!
