3 - If it’s a nice day, grab a picnic and head down to Canoe Lake. You can sit on the grass and feed the swans. Maybe bring a coat just in case though!

5 - Fancy a Valentine’s Day meal with a difference? You could try a delicious burger meal at Monster Mick’s van on Portsdown Hill.

6 - You might have to get up early, but there’s the chance of seeing a beautiful sunrise from the top of Portsdown Hill. How romantic!
