Top 5 Romantic Places in Britain
- Primrose Hill, London offers spectacular views of London in a parkland setting. Located on the northern side of Regent’s Park, it’s an ideal place to take a picnic and a bottle of wine, while away an hour or two taking in all the landmark sites of central London in your own peaceful oasis of calm and quiet, with only the clink of your wine glasses to disturb the peace.
- Lower Slaughter is a picture postcard village in the beautiful Cotswolds. Copse Hill Road in the heart of the village is perhaps the most romantic street in Britain, with its beautiful chocolate-box houses, riverside location and pretty views. A favourite with the rich and famous, you might even see a celebrity or two while you stroll along.
- The beauty of the Lake District has inspired many writers over the years, not least Wordsworth, Coleridge and many other poets of the ‘Romantic’ movement in the nineteenth century. You too could ‘wander lonely as a cloud’ and watch the daffodils ‘fluttering and dancing in the breeze’ at Glencoyne Bay, Ullswater or take in the jaw-dropping beauty of the views from the jetty at Windermere.
- Take a walk to Calton Hill, Edinburgh and enjoy the panoramic views of the wonderful sandstone buildings of the city once called ‘the Athens of the North’. From your peaceful vantage point you’ll be able to enjoy famous landmarks such as Arthur’s Seat, Princes Street and the award-winning Scottish Parliament building
- Lover’s Leap, Dovedale, in the picturesque Peak District National Park, is a rock 120ft above the river. The legend is that a young woman threw herself off the rock after being jilted by her lover. She landed in a bush and survived, mended her broken heart and lived happily ever after.
