Bunkers is the perfect place for cheap date nights in Swansea. Two games of crazy golf only cost £12.50, which isn’t that expensive considering it can last a while. It’s a great place to have fun and bring out your competitive side, and even have a few drinks whilst you’re playing! If you want to book your slot, head over to their website!

2. Head to a board game cafe

Board game cafes are the perfect place for chill date nights, and in Swansea, we have two!. These are Social Dice and Common Meeple. Both places cost around the same, and both have a huge selection of board games to choose from! It costs around £3 per hour per person for a table, so you could only end up spending around £6 altogether. It’s fun, cheap, and a great way to spend some time with someone.

3. Go for a (cheap) meal

Although meals out can be expensive, we have loads of choice in Swansea for reasonably priced meals. If you’re looking for chains, we have TGI Friday’s, Wagamamas, Nando’s, and Las Iguanas, which all have around similar price ranges. We also have a bunch of independent restaurants as well, such as Muswanna, Truffle, Adelina’s, and The Secret Bar and Kitchen. Just make sure to book in advance because these places can get busy!

4. Go bowling

Who doesn’t love ice cream? Joe’s sells the best ice-cream in Swansea, and although it’s a bit more expensive than some ice cream parlours, it’s definitely worth it.

The best thing about arcades is that you never end up spending lots of money! The machines are usually only a couple of pounds at a time (or even less), so you never end up spending your whole student loan. Although those claw machines can be addictive, it’s the perfect place to do something fun and cheap!

9. Go to a live music venue

So maybe we saved the best till last, because the sunset is one of the favourite things in Swansea. If you want to watch the sunset go across the whole bay, then you should definitely climb up Kilvey Hill, or go to Rosehill quarry. But if you want to see the sunset from the beach, then Bracelet Bay is probably the best place to go. It’s romantic, cheap, and so beautiful to watch.
