Book into Broadway cinema for a Nottingham Valentine’s night of no chatting

If you’re nervous about having to talk to your date (or are just really into film) a night at Broadway cinema may be just the experience. Featuring a mix of the latest releases and classic favourites in film, it truly holds its own in the UK for quality screenings. It was even where Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction premiered in the UK. 


With two bars at the cinema to choose from, you can unwind with a drink before your meal, or take it with you into your screen. 

Try a daytime Valentine’s date at 200 Degrees

Open from 8 on weekdays, 200 Degrees makes the perfect daytime date for those who prefer to start their Valentine’s Day early. With beans roasted right in Nottingham, 200 Degrees is well-known locally for its high-quality coffee.


They offer ethically-sourced coffee, all blended and roasted by self-proclaimed coffee geeks.

Embrace a day of cheesy fun at the Funstation

With classic arcade games and 10 Pin Bowling, the Funstation is a great day out if you’re looking for something different. Get ready to feel like a kid again as you make your way from air hockey to the teddy grabbers.


Located at The Cornerhouse, there’s lots to do in the area. Why not stop at the Slug & Lettuce afterwards for a drink, or explore the other attractions on offer?
