THE UK'S MOST ROMANTIC PLACES


It’s always nice to get away for a while with your significant other for some ‘you time’, but the question is always where to go. Of course, there are many romantic overseas destinations, but if you fancy something a little closer to home for whatever reason then the UK still has an abundance of romantic destinations. 

Here are just a few of them… 

Oxford 

No-one had heard of Oxford before Inspector Morse but it’s without a doubt one of the most romantic cities in the UK. Just take a wander around the stunning architecture of the university and many of the other buildings and you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time. There are also plenty of lovely, quirky little shops to pick up keepsakes and many a local café or restaurant in which to enjoy a romantic bite to eat. 

Chester 

The Roman city of Chester may not be big but it does have plenty of character and charm and therefore is perfect for short holidays and weekend breaks. You can take a walk around its city walls (the most complete of its kind in the UK) before popping down to the river Dee where you can enjoy an ice cream or cup of tea or even go out on the river in a row boat – just the two of you!

Cotswolds 

If the idea of snuggling up by the fire in a traditional English cottage appeals to you then the Cotswolds could well be the perfect place. You’ve got quaint little villages with pubs serving local ale, rolling green hills and all the peace and quiet you need for a romantic trip away. Just check out The Telegraph’s travel guide to the Cotswolds for proof of the area’s natural beauty. 

Devon 

Like the Cotswolds, Devon has some absolutely beautiful scenery and countryside, and is another place ideal for those wanting to relax in a country cottage. Devon also has its fair share of picturesque fishing villages such as Ilfracombe, Dartmouth and Brixham that serve local fish, making it a great place if you’re partial to a bit of seafood. 

Edinburgh 

Edinburgh expert Helen Pickles said of the city: “This city pushes so many buttons, you’d have to be a frigid Philistine to visit and remain unmoved.” And she’s right! Edinburgh is a wonderful destination for a short romantic trip away. The architecture and topography are stunning (it has its own volcano!) and there is so much history to take in that you could stay for years and not see it all. Alternatively, if your idea of romance is laughing your socks off, then you could always go to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Bath 

Again, the architecture and history of Bath is what makes it special. Obviously you have to visit the Roman baths but then there is also the iconic Royal Crescent, the Theatre Royal, Bath Abbey and much more. There are also a number of museums and galleries to enjoy, making it a great destination for those who like a bit of culture with their romance. 

Where would you consider to be a romantic place in the UK?

  3. All sound lovely. Must make more of an effort for some quality time next year - it's a difficult balance to get with little ones, work and other commitments!

    I'd definitely recommend Loch Lomond in Scotland. Absolutely beautiful and plenty of places to stay for all budgets. Outdoor activities, gorgeous restaurants so if you luck out and get some decent weather, it's got it all!

    Keeping my eye out for other suggestions x

  8. We went to Chester for our honeymoon. It's amazing there are we ate in The Chester Grosvenor restaurant twice... 2 Michelin stars! It was awesome. I live in the Lakes and think it's very romantic here too. Especially Surprise View at Derwent Water. X
