Make Memories With Bae: All The Romantic Places in Kolkata You Need to Visit

27296 Interested |

Need some alone time with your special one and all you can think of is Victoria Memorial? Surprise surprise! These quiet and private places in the city are totally romantic. Celebrate Propose Day with your partner as you fall in love with each other again over long walks, good food and some quality time together.

Abandoned Jetty By The Hooghly

This abandoned ‘helipad’ is not, strictly speaking, the most ‘legal’ romantic spot but for early-morning lovers, but the jetty over the Hooghly beside Bidhan Ghat at Napier road gives you a picture-perfect view of the Vidyasagar Setu. Enjoy a romantic (but brisk) walk past the railway tracks to the helipad to watch the sunrise over the river. Head over for breakfast later!

Subhash Sarovar

Waterside long walks – what could be more romantic? Enjoy a calming walk surrounded by a canopy of trees, the chirping of birds and the rippling water of the lake. Subhash Sarovar, just off  EM Bypass, is a hidden gem in the middle of the chaos of the city. Escape to the huge lake which is secluded by the over-arching trees surrounding it. Settle down on one of the benches around the lake to whisper sweet nothings to your loved one. It's 73-acre of natural beauty to play backdrop to your romantic evening.

Elliot Park

Ditch the crowded Victoria Memorial because Elliot Park is just around the corner from there (opposite St. Paul’s Cathedral) and is full of greenery and privacy. Entry is free and you get to enjoy pretty fountains and lush greenery. There are also guards who patrol here, so it’s pretty safe.

Millennium Park

This park along the strand is a perfect spot for an eventful date. Packed with vendors and families, it’s very safe and secure. Get gorgeous pictures looking out onto the river. There are also a handful of rides (it’s considered the city’s first amusement park) – a perfect excuse to discreetly grab your loved one’s hand. Grab a seat under the round benches covered with ‘permanent umbrellas’ in case it starts to rain.

Eco Park

This 480-acre property is not only a hotspot for power-packed activities (they even have couples ‘duo’ cycling to heat things up), which are a great ice breaker for a first date, but for all the ‘seasoned’ couples, there are also enough quiet spots away from the prying eyes of judgmental uncles and aunties. Take advantage of the long car drive there as a build-up to the romance!

Rabindra Sarobar

A romantic list on Kolkata cannot be complete without the Rabindra Sarobar Lake where everyone finds privacy and acceptance. After extensive maintenance work in the recent past, the lakes are as beautiful as ever. You might want to watch out for the mosquitoes particularly in the monsoon evenings, since they can interrupt your alone-time.

Princep Ghat

A favourite hangout spot for couples in the city, Princep Ghat is where you should head for a romantic evening with your beloved. Located on the banks of River Hooghly, this place is one of the most loved destinations to spend some quality time with your special one. Perch yourself on one of the benches, sit by the riverside, or enjoy a ‘nouko’ (boat) ride while watching the sun go down behind Vidyasagar Setu.

Nalban Lake

Located in Bidhannagar, the pristine and quiet Nalban Lake is surrounded by trees and greenery. Take a walk by the lake hand-in-hand with your partner or perch yourself on one of the benches around and whisper sweet nothings into each other’s ears. You can also go boating and gorge on a wide variety of dishes at the food complex located inside. An ideal Propose Day celebration, we think!
