If you're looking to get loved up with your partner this Valentine's Day, you won't struggle to find a romantic activity in the Northern Irish capital of Belfast. Alternatively, if you're a singleton, you can avoid the whole charade altogether with Belfast's great range of anti-Valentine's Day events.
For a romantic evening listening to classical music you can watch Northern Ireland's only full-time professional Ulster Orchestra perform at the Ulster Hall or the Waterfront Hall. Indie venues like the Belfast Empire Music Hall and Limelight will also offer plenty to share. If you're dramatic types you can enjoy a traditional night at the theatre at Belfast's Lyric Theatre or the Grand Opera House.
Film lovers won't struggle to find a place to cuddle up over the latest Hollywood rom-coms at the local ODEON and Moviehouse cinemas. More independently-minded film lovers can catch a cute art house or world film at Belfast's independent cinemas the Queen's Film Theatre and the Strand Theatre.
