Pressure to wow on a date is stressful business. Leading flight excursion platform Wingly, connecting passengers to pilots for incredible scenic adventures, has put together 5 date ideas for lovers of popular TV and film classics. Whether it be a proposal (it’s leap year!) or a gift card for a special anniversary, a high-flying adventure is sure to impress.
Here are our romantic Valentines date ideas:
‘The Holiday’ Date
The ultimate quintessential romantic date for fans (who isn’t) of rom-com film The Holiday, this Wingly flight from Woking, taking in the beautiful scenery of Surrey (where much of the film was shot) and then travelling along to South Coast taking in the stunning views of the Isle of Wight, is sure to impress. To continue the experience, take a drive just 30 minutes south to the quaint town of Shere, the setting for the romance between Cameron Diaz and Jude Law’s characters, to cosy up in one of the 17th century pubs or restaurants and take a country stroll.
As Poldark airs for its fifth and final series, fans of the romantic period drama can continue their love affair via a tour of the stunning Cornish coast, the backdrop to the popular TV series. If horse riding across a beach isn’t an option, the Wingly flight from Cornwall to the Isle of Wight allows passengers to witness the set from air, from the unspoilt beaches of St Agnes Head and Chapel Porth (used for the famous horseback scenes) to the dramatic Bodmin Moor – featuring the Poldark family home Nampara.
View the historical film set of the British series Downton Abbey from the sky. The flight, with a knowledgeable local pilot, flies from Camberley over the stunning North Wessex Downs offering a birds-eye view of Highclare Castle, the setting for the much-loved Abbey. The flight also allows for a lunch stop in the romantic town of Kemble in the Cotswolds.
Muggle Magic in Scotland
Whether House Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin, or Hufflepuff, there are plenty of flights to choose from that explore the stunning locations from the much-loved HarryPotter film series via a Tour of Scotland. View the scenic lochs, forests, mountains and quant villages that provided the backdrop to the adventures of Harry and the Hogwarts Express.
Dragons eye view of GOT set
Whether House Stark or Lannister, there are plenty of flights to choose from that explore the stunning locations from the much-loved TV series Game of Thrones; see Winterfell from the air via a Tour of Scotland, or the beautiful beaches, harbors, quarries and forests of Northern Ireland heavily featured in the Award Winning series, with a weekend away flying from Blackpool to Donegal.
