Sometimes it feels like the whole of London is on a date. Art dates, dinner dates, romantic dates, mate dates… you get the picture. Break out of your date rut (the Tate, bowling, brunch… sound familiar?) and try something new with one of these fun date ideas in London. You might have a fun date and like it. Or even better, you might like the person you’re with.

At Swingers you can pick one of three crazy courses, waitresses bring you cocktails as you putt and there’s plenty of food in the clubhouse afterwards.
Ramp up the va-va-voom at Baranis, where you can play pétanque or, if it’s a nice day, head to Cleaver Square in Kennington to watch locals play in deadly serious matches (while you sip pints from the square’s posh pub).
And only buy foods beginning with B at Borough Market. Bread, burrata, beer, beefburgers… before wandering down to the Italian market Mercato Metropolitano opposite Southwark Playhouse for negronis and wine.
