The WLGT Guide to Valentine’s in Chester & Cheshire

Whether you’re in love, between love or looking for love – WLGT has something lovely for you this Valentine’s. Book a romantic dinner at one of Cheshire’s best restaurants, or for that little bit of extra ooh la la, check into one of our featured boutique hotels (and maybe request a duvet picnic?).

If you’re looking for something completely different, join the Smile High Club with brand new Exotic Booze Club (you can buy tickets as a couple or if you’re single right here), and if you’re currently single, why not book a place at The Chester Fields for their ‘Find a Date for Valentine’s’ event on the 5th February? (book here).

Whatever takes your fancy – you can find it in the WLGT Valentine’s Guide – read on for our summary of the best places to go this year;

Indulgence package at Wood Restaurant & Hotel Indigo Chester

If you haven’t tried this fabulous restaurant yet created by Masterchef 2015 winner Simon Wood – then now is the time. We think that Simon’s ethos of Unintimidating Fine Dining is perfect for Valentine’s, and his seven course tasting menu (with wine flight and a cocktail on arrival) will satisfy the most insatiable appetites. Make a night of it with a deluxe King Room at Hotel Indigo – and we most definitely suggest breakfast in bed …
