"Day out" ideas this weekend!!

Found 1st Apr 2010
Can anyone give me suggestions of a good day out for this weekend that won't be ridiculously busy?! It's for my boyfriend and I, we're both in our 20s and live in the Midlands. It can be something that's a bit of a distance away as we can just get a hotel, but his passport has just run out so nothing abroad!! We thought of theme parks but they are all going to be absolutely rammed!! Rep for good ideas! :-D

Yeah, I did think about that... I had a look on lastminute but there's not a great deal on that I'm keen to see or haven't seen already. I'm angling for a spa break but apparently that's too girly for him

I used to love going to the Cotswolds at your age or Bewdley in a cheap B&B.

What do you do on an Easter egg trail?!

If the easter egg is on trial are you hoping to crack the case



what a good yolk

do you have anything in mind at all? something energetic or more laid back and relaxed? could yous compromise so yous do something your bf wants to during the day and then have a massage, sauna or jaccuzi later on?
