  • Begin the evening by enjoying a unique menu full of fresh, local ingredients at the renowned Wilderness restaurant. Exploring a fine dining experience will set the tone for your night, offering an intimate atmosphere to kick off your celestial journey.
  • After dinner, gear up for an adventure in the stars as you head to the Thinktank Birmingham Science Museum's Planetarium. Surrounded by projected constellations, galaxies, and planets, you'll embark on an educational, immersive journey towards the wonders of the universe. There's something incredibly romantic about exploring the infinite cosmos alongside your partner.
  • Post show, you'll move to the museum's indoor observatory. Here, you can extend your journey by peeking through specialized telescopes and gazing directly at speckled galaxies, distant planets and stars, creating long-lasting memories for both of you.

Preparation steps:

  • Start your preparation by securing your reservations at the Wilderness Restaurant and tickets to the planetarium. Given the surge in popularity of unique experiences, it might be a good idea to book in advance.
  • Make sure to dress semi-formally to adhere to the dinner venue's dress code. It's also recommended to bring with you light layers such as shawls and cardigans since the planetarium might be cooler.
  • Lastly, the whole experience will be more incredible if you do a little homework about constellations, celestial bodies, and space in general. This is not necessary but it would be more enjoyable to understand and immerse into the planetarium show.

Some tips:

  • When at the restaurant, order a bottle of wine to light up the mood and encourage conversation. Ask your partner what they know about the cosmos, their favorite constellations or if they believe life exists on other planets. These questions not only enhance the space exploration theme of the date, but also pave the way to deeper conversations about life and your own universe.
  • During the planetarium show, make sure to hold hands and be close to each other. The romantic and magical atmosphere brought by the vastness of space creates a perfect moment of intimacy.
  • End your evening date by stargazing at the observatory, whispering sweet desires to the universe and to each other. Make wishes on the stars and create romantic memories under the constellations of your choice.
