Thanks to its rich history, the UK packs a lot of fantastic options for memorable getaways for couples. Most importantly, it is an easy place to get around—within a few hours, you can go from wild coastlines to historic towns and from quaint country villages to word-class cities.
To help you enjoy your next getaways in the UK, here are the most spectacular options that work for just about any month or season.
Enjoy Glorious Lincoln’s Brayford Waterfront
Being the oldest inland harbor in England, Brayford Waterfront offers a great selection of entertainment, drinking, and eating venues. Stroll down the northern side of the Waterfront to find a huge range of restaurants alongside luxury bars and hotels as well as a multi-screen cinema. You can also go around the Fossdyke Canal and Brayford pool on the famous Brayford Belle.
Get Active On The Tranquil Scilly Islands
Characterized by translucent turquoise seas, stunning silvery white beaches, and rugged coastline, the beauty of this archipelago is irrefutable. Hop from one island to the next via a high-speed RIB boat or on a gentler glass-bottomed boat. Alternatively, kayak around the coastline, go fishing, play golf, hone your kite surfing skills, or explore the historic sites that the tranquil islands have to offer on a bike.
Have quality time at Woolley Grange
Dating back to the 1600s and with a rich history that seeps through every crevice, Woolley Grange is the only hotel in the UK that’s known to embrace its past and still manages to combine luxury and character while remaining as family-friendly as possible. If you have kids, allow them to zoom along zip wires or conquer the ginormous climbing frames at the Royal Victora Park. Alternatively, allow them to catch a show at the UK’s award-winning theatre for children, Egg Theatre.
Enjoy the Romantic charm of the Robin Hood’s Bay
Concealed in a narrow valley on the North Yorkshire coast, between Whitby and Scarborough, Robin Hood’s Bay has a rugged air of mystery, making it a magnet for couples seeking inspiration. Whether it is wandering down the higgledy-piggledy smugglers’ village, stocking up crabs, lobsters, and other local delights, or taking Albion Street coffee, there are several romantic things to do in Robin Hood’s Bay.
A weekend getaway can provide unmatched excitement, adventure, and intimacy. Hopefully, you will consider one or some of the above-highlighted destinations in your next getaways in the UK.
