Frankie & Benny’s

If you are going for a classic restaurant date, try checking out Frankie & Benny’s: New York Italian Restaurant and Bar. Breakfast items include things such as hash browns, pancakes, omelets, and of course, bacon. Moving on to lunch, you can find Philly cheeseburgers, crispy coated chicken strips, meatballs Italiano, and BLT wraps on the menu. Dinner options include things like calamari, Cajun chicken bake, carbonara, various burgers and sandwiches, pizzas, salads, and steaks. And to top it all off, we have the desert menu. This features various waffle deserts, chocolate brownie fudge cake, toffee pudding, apple pie, sundaes, and cheesecakes.



For a more formal date, The Royalty Theatre is an ideal location. The Royalty Theatre is one of the only establishments in the city of Sunderland that provides on-stage dramatic plays. The theatre hosts various plays all throughout the year. The establishment is also home to some social activities as well. On Saturdays, Royalty Theatre offers something called Quiz Nights. Members and nonmembers alike are welcomed to join in on the puzzles, quizzes, and pictures.

Go Karting

For something more adventurous, check out Karting North East. As the name implies, Karting North East is a massive go-kart track. There are two adult tracks. The first is 850 meters, and the second is 1200 meters. Both tracks feature various twists and turns, and last for approximately 30 minutes. Karting North East also features other attractions as well. Amongst these is a 4×4 off road driving course. For 30 minutes to an hour, you can drive an ex-army Landrover off track into a course that has numerous turns, steep inclines, and water pits. If you are looking for something a bit more ‘hands on’ they also offer paintball and archery/tomahawk throwing. The paint ball arena is built into the side of a hill, and is constructed in a way where the general public can look down and watch your game. It is built as a War World II battle scenario, which features gun positions, sandbag trenches, and machine gun nests. You are given approximately two hours of game play. And last, but not least, we come to the archery and tomahawk department. You can do just one, or both of the activities. If neither of you have experience, don’t worry, the course comes with an instructor to guide you.

Rock Climbing

Want to try something new together? The Sunderland Climbing Centre is just the place to go. There are outdoor climbing courses available during the summer. However, there are indoor courses offered year round. If you or your paramour have no experience, they offer an introductory course. After completing basic training and going through the safety requirements and information, you are free to climb unsupervised for as long as you would like.

These are only but a few examples of what date destinations Sunderland has to offer. Whatever you and your date’s interests may be, Sunderland is guaranteed to have the perfect destination for you.
