There are some seriously romantic places in Britain – and we don’t just mean London. While the capital city is known for being home to lots of romantic destinations, including the London Eye and Buckingham Palace, there are also lots of other cities that are just as romantic. This includes quiet country destinations with beautiful views and historical towns with natural spas.
If you are visiting the UK and you want to experience a romantic, magical trip, here are 5 places to consider (that aren’t London).
1. The Most Romantic Places In Britain: Stratford Upon Avon
Stratford Upon Avon is ranked as the fifth most romantic destination in Britain, and it isn’t hard to see why. The beautiful, historic town is on top of the river Avon, and it is well known for being the birthplace of Shakespeare. The town is the perfect getaway for lovers; there are lots of beautiful parks and gardens for couples to explore, as well as lots of quaint cafes, restaurants and coffee shops to check out.
And if you don’t mind ghosts and spirits, you could also check out Ettington Park Hotel, as the hotel was recently listed as one of the most haunted hotels in the UK!
2. Tresco, Scilly Isles
The Scilly Isles are a truly beautiful part of the UK. The island of Tresco is particularly stunning, featuring beautiful beaches and breath-taking views. Tresco island is also home to Abbey Gardens, which are surely one of the most romantic gardens in the UK. The 19th century gardens are perfectly manicured, and they feature lots of plant and tree species that can’t be found anywhere else in the UK.
If you like British history, Bath is the perfect destination for you. The wonderful city is filled with gorgeous Georgian buildings, as well as the only natural thermal spa in the UK. The town is also home to lots of antique British tea rooms, so this is the ideal place to enjoy a classic British brew!
4. Cornwall, England
Cornwall is home to beautiful beaches, quaint country towns and lots of tea shops – so you probably won’t be surprised to hear that the area is also well known for producing some of the best cream tea in the UK! Cornwall is also home to Tintagel Castle, a stunning castle that is linked to the legend of King Arthur.
5. The Lake District
The Lake District was recently ranked at the most romantic getaway in Britain, which makes sense. After all, the beautiful landscape is a quiet paradise for couples; there are breath-taking views of hills and lakes, as well as lots of beautiful hotels with luxury bedrooms.
