Fun ideas for a date in Sunderland

Play to win at… Galaxy Quest Adventure Golf  

30 John Street, Sunderland, SR1 1QU

Got a competitive streak? This one is for you. Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned pro, Galaxy Quest Adventure Golf will test your skills (it’s almost pitch black, for a start). The nine-hole course is filled with unique obstacles and structures – laughs guaranteed.

£6pp for nine holes

Then get spicy at… My Delhi Sunderland

39 Borough Road, Sunderland, SR1 1PL 

After the winner has been crowned, head to My Delhi Sunderland on the next street. The atmosphere is relaxed and the food is so good the Garlic Chilli Naan is life-changing. If you like a cheeky cocktail, we recommend the Mumbai Memoirs…

Heat things up at… Wild Fire Pizza

Hanover Place, Sunderland, SR4 6BY

Just a 15-minute walk from Sunderland Empire is Wild Fire Bar & Pizza – one of our favourite restaurants in Sunderland (which handily has a cool bar serving up banging cocktails and great wine).

Share a few small plates, half a pizza, grab some cocktails and you’ll be ready for the show…. 

Then get cultural at… Sunderland Empire

4-5 High Street West, Sunderland, SR1 3EX

Whether you’re into musicals, West End shows or concerts, Sunderland Empire Theatre has a great line-up of shows for 2024. From The Wizard of Oz to Hamilton and Chicago, check out this year’s listings and book something you’ll both love.

Recreate the Ghost scene at… Mitford Pottery 

Unit 56, Enterprise Park East, Wearfield, Sunderland, SR5 2TA

Fancy trying something a little more creative on your next date? Mitford Pottery offers a range of ceramic courses and classes – including a two-hour taster session every Saturday that’s the perfect way to give this fun hobby a try for the first time. It’s £60 for one person or £70 for two people and offers the chance to decorate a pre-made cup or mug before your creation is fired and glazed.

Then cosy up at… The Hideout Coffee House

Kiosk 6, Lower Promenade, Whitburn Rd, Sunderland, SR6 8AB

Round off the date with a hearty brunch at The Hideout – a refurbished derelict building which is now one of the most loved coffee spots on the beach (the reviews speak for themselves). They have a great brunch menu as well as a wide selection of luxury cakes, scones and top-quality coffee. Plus, if you’re having a good time you can extend your date with a wander along the seafront.
