Ah, the beauty of Valentine’s Day – where you can do candlelit dinners in dark corners of restaurants, a day sprawled out in the sunshine or pull the curtains shut and nestle down with a bowl of popcorn for a Harry Potter marathon (if that's your cup of tea).

We’ve rounded up our choice of Valentine’s Day events around Adelaide, perfect for a day out with your partner, a fun date night with new fling, a Galentine’s group or just by yourself as an act of self-love.
