7 romantic locations around the UK

7 romantic locations around the UK

A survey conducted earlier this year revealed the UK’s most romantic locations, here’s a round up for some homegrown romance

The Welsh Coastline

This year Wales can claim a world first as the only country to have a path around its entire coast. The 870-mile Wales Coast Path runs from Queensferry in the North Wales Borderlands to Chepstow in the far south-east. If you're looking for somewhere to stroll hand-in-hand, try the North Wales Path. To get your hearts pounding on a serious honeymoon hike, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path changes from rugged, wave-lashed coast in the north to sandy beaches and sheltered coves of the south.

Stonehenge

Britain's best-known ancient monument is still one of our most mysterious attractions. The true meaning of this ancient, awe-inspiring creation has been lost in the mists of time. Arrange in advance to go inside the stone circle at dawn or sunset. English Heritage take care of the monument; visit their website for more details.

The Cotswolds

Covering six counties (Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and Bath & North East Somerset), the Cotswolds are often thought of as the quintessential English countryside. It would be easy to zoom through the region, but it's worth getting off the main roads to explore the rolling hills, fairytale woods and sleepy villages. Head to Broadway Tower to take in the view.

Windermere

Windermere, England's largest natural lake, is a stunner - and it's just the start of the Lake District's many attractions. It's the ultimate destination for walkers and adventure enthusiasts alike, with places to walk, hike, bike and swim but that's not all. You'll also find boutique hotels, quirky museums, Michelin-starred restaurants, music festivals and photography courses to help you capture the newly-wed magic.

Snowdon

Keep your relationship on a high climbing to the highest peak in England and Wales, Snowdon. There are a variety of routes up the mountain, but you can take the train to the top if you don't want to walk. Snowdonia National Park has more than just mountains; there are long sandy beaches and crystal clear lakes and rivers to explore together too.

Arthur's Seat, Edinburgh

For a 360 degree view of the Scottish capital, trek to the top of Arthur's Seat for what locals say are the best views of the city. Paths up this ancient, extinct volcano can get busy mid-day, so time your trek for the morning or late afternoon to appreciate those top-notch views.

The top of Primrose Hill

There are hundreds of places in London that rate highly on the richter scale of romance, and the view from Primrose Hill is right up there. The hill, on the north side of Regent's Park overlooks the city of London as far as the BT Tower and the London Eye; particularly romantic at sunset.
