Is there anything more fun than a girls' day out together or a ladies' lunch? If there is, we’re yet to see it! At tastecard, we love days out with our girls, whether it’s spending time together shopping, having a catch-up over a coffee or enjoying some fine dining in our best frocks. Whatever the plans are, we’re there. If you’re trying to plan a day out but struggling for girls’ day out ideas, read this tastecard guide and pick up some handy discounts along the way.

The importance of a girls’ day out.

A day out with your girlfriends is the perfect remedy and a break from everyday life. If you’ve been feeling stressed with work or studies, need a break from the kids for an afternoon or just want to let your hair down, having a laugh and de-stressing with your best friends is the perfect solution.

Plus, that bond you share with your girls is special. You’ve got to take time out of your day-to-day life to spend with them, so let your hair down and plan the best girls’ day out.

Whether there’s a small group of girls or a large group of up to 10 or more, planning a day out with a group of people can be tricky.

Luckily, we’re here to help you with some amazing girls’ day out ideas.

Whatever part of the UK you’re in, having a tastecard membership can come in extremely handy. Whether it’s simply looking for better deals for brunch, finding the perfect restaurant for dinner or searching for cheaper tickets for major attractions, we can help you. Just start by downloading the tastecard app and you’re off!

Days out and attractions.

At tastecard, we don’t just supply discounts for restaurants, bars and cafes. We can give you major savings on tickets at a host of attractions all around the UK. So, if you and the girls are cinema-goers, you can save on your entry. 

The same applies to theme parks like Alton Towers and Thorpe Park. If you’re a group of adrenaline seekers and love a bit of thrill, get on The Smiler, scream your lungs out, and do it cheaper than everyone around you.

If you’re in London, there are even more attractions you can visit for a fraction of the original price. The London Eye, Madame Tussaud’s, SEA Life and many more locations provide discounts to tastecard members. So, if you’re planning a day out with the girls, save everyone money by using your membership.

Wherever you are in the UK, check out the tastecard app and find nearby restaurants for you and the girls. If your day out is an all-day affair, you’ll need breakfast. If you’re in Manchester, there’s a delightful spot in the Deansgate area called Dulce Cor Cafe Bar. Its menu features a range of breakfast options, including egg dishes, croissants, French toast and pancakes. On top of that, there are also milkshakes and delicious coffees to indulge in. If that’s not the ideal start to a girls’ day out, we don’t know what is.

Plus, show them your tastecard membership and you’ll get a tasty 25% discount on your food.

Maybe you’re up north in Glasgow and you’re thinking about meeting up for a bite for lunch before you get the day started. A perfect opportunity for a girls’ dinner and ladies’ lunch is a Spanish tapas. It’s the ultimate picky dinner for ladies who want to chat while snacking. In Glasgow, there’s the delicious Cubatas that serve a divine range of Spanish dishes for you to pick from. Choose a range of options and share them with the group. Also, there’s a variety of amazing cocktails to enjoy with your meal. What better way to start a girls’ day out than tapas and cocktails?! And, Cubatas offers all tastecard members 2 for 1 on food so you’re actually saving money while relaxing and having the time of your life.

If you’re hitting the bars and clubs after a meal in central London, you’ll want to eat in the area to avoid too much travel. There are plenty of restaurants in the Tottenham Court Road area, like Bodean’s BBQ, Nordic Bar, and Jamon Jamon – another tapas restaurant – so there’s plenty to choose from.

Whether the whole group prefers Italian, Seafood, Asian, Turkish, British, or something else, there’s something for everyone in the area. Choose the right place for you and then head out for cocktails and more.
