The clocks moving forward might mean that we get an hour less sleep at the end of March, but I means we also get lighter evenings. When staying at Roomzzz, we want you to enjoy your time here so here’s how to make the most of the lighter evenings…

Dine Outside

The lighter evenings also mean warmer nights so take advantage by dining outside. In Chester, Nottingham, Newcastle, Leeds and Manchester there are plenty of options. In Manchester, the whole of Exchange Square gets turned into an outdoor restaurant where you can enjoy food from Salvi’s or Banyan Bar and Kitchen. It’s quite the sun trap here too so you’ll be able to bask in the warmth while enjoying dinner.

Leeds also has a lot of outdoor dining options including Ambiente where you can devour tapas while sitting on the edge of the River Aire. Crafthouse overlooks Boar Lane and provides exceptional food, and Waterlane Boathouse provides chilled out vibes for an evening in the summer sun and some of the most delicious pizza you’ll find in Leeds.

See An Outdoor Film

Outdoor cinema screenings have become really fashionable in recent years. And with the lighter evenings on the way, there’s no reason not to experience one. If you’re staying at Nottingham, keep your eye out for an outdoor cinema at Wollaton Hall in the summer months and in Chester, Moonlight Flicks will soon be releasing their programme for the Roman Gardens location. Grab your popcorn, pull up a seat, and enjoy a movie watching experience with a difference!

Sunset Stroll

The benefit of longer evenings is not only the extra light, but you can spend an evening relaxing before watching the sunset. Take a walk through the dappled shadows of the path in Jesmond Dene in Newcastle and or in Chester, the city walls make for a peaceful stroll in the evening sun.

Picnic In The Park

Picnics in the park are one of life’s small pleasures. Pick out your favourite nibbles from the supermarket, prepare a picnic in the kitchen in your Roomzzz Aparthotel, and take out to enjoy in the sun. Our recommendations for parks are Roundhay Park in Leeds or Park Square in the city centre, Newcastle boasts Heaton Park and Jesmond Dene Park, and Chester has Grosvenor Park which is a short 15 minute walk from Roomzzz Chester.

Read A Book On The Balcony

Some of our Roomzzz Aparthotels are lucky enough to have rooms with gorgeous balconies. Elegance Suites in Leeds City and Leeds Headingley both have balconies and so do the Penthouse and Ascot Suites at Roomzzz Chester. Can you imagine sitting out on the lighter evenings, reading a book with a refreshing drink in hand? It sounds like bliss doesn’t it?
