Kingston Date Night Ideas for Parents

Updated: Apr 25

Date night ideas beyond just going out to eat!

  • Mindful morning walks hosted by, the walks will have a different mindfulness exercise each week and the route changes but includes Richmond Park and Cadbury Gardens, £40 for the month. Contact to sign up!

  • Waterstones in Bentalls Centre hosts many events such as book launches, quizzes, board game nights and more. Or simply spending an hour walking around, looking at books together is something fun and relaxing!

  • Yo! Sushi Making class in Bentalls Centre is held every Wednesday, they explain the history of sushi, cutting techniques and of course you'll make your own roles. It lasts about 2 hours and around £30 per person!

  • The Ram Jam (at the back of the Grey Horse Pub) hosts an open mic night every Wednesday starting at 6pm!

  • The Fun Club (across from the food stalls in ancient market place), is a game cafe! You can play games and grab a delicious bubble tea.

  • Tenpin Bowling in the Rotunda offer 50% off bowling and selected drinks on Tuesdays! Available all day, or after 6pm in the school holidays.

  • Pop Playrooms, recently opened up in the Rotunda, mini gold, darts and pool!

Family Date? Can't find a babysitter? Here are some fun ideas for whole family that are beyond just a softplay!

  • Grab a snack or drink and walk by the river to view the boats, rowing and see all the different birds out in about!

  • Latchmere park has a small cafe, a playground and lots of greenery to have a picnic or play in the grass.

  • If your little ones are OK to be left at a creche, the Bentalls Center offers a fabulous Children's Centre Creche while you bop around the shops. The manager runs it really well, it is very clean with lots of toys. It says for kids up to 8 years old but I think up to 5 would be most suitable, as it is mostly toddlers / babies.

  • John Lewis cafe for some breakfast, or Fenwick's, and then a wander through the toy section- great activity to do when it is raining but everyone needs to get out of the house!

  • Richmond Park (Kingston Gate entrance), has a lovely children's section on your left that is gated in, and no animals allowed! It is a great place to let the little ones roam while you have a little sit :)
