It’s the perfect place for a romantic stroll along the beach or to explore the town’s charming, cobbled streets lined with a myriad of quirky shops. Discover eateries that serve delicious produce sourced from the local area all in the shadow of the iconic ruins of Whitby Abbey.
Discover the charm of The Cotswolds
If you’re looking for something that’s quintessentially English, then The Cotswolds is the perfect place to get away from it all and soak up the romance in this stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Step into another world in this picture-perfect part of the UK where there are chocolate box villages to explore. Quaint shops, country pubs and idyllic cobbled streets await in this honey-coloured countryside idyl.
Enjoy a romantic dinner in one of the many fine dining options or explore the rolling hills with a picnic made for two. There is so much to explore in the sprawling ‘wolds’, making this magical place a blissful UK honeymoon spot.
Inspiring Isle of Skye
If you’re looking for something a little bit more on the wild side, the rugged and captivating Isle of Skye offers up a landscape that will capture your heart. Brooding mountains make an atmospheric backdrop for your romantic break away.
A photographer’s dream, this captivating landscape is home to pretty towns and villages where you can cosy up in a charming pub with your other half and sample some of the local whisky. Take a dip in the crystal-clear water of the Fairy Pools, or visit in winter for a chance to experience the wonder of the Aurora Borealis.
Luxury in London
London doesn’t need to be all about the sight-seeing. In between taking in the sights, London can offer newlyweds endless opportunities for a lavish luxury escape. Experience fine dining on every corner, discover indulgent relaxation at one of London’s many spas or take in dinner and a show in London’s famous West End.
London has something for everyone. Why not book an extravagant afternoon tea at The Ritz, snuggle up with a coffee and while away the hours in Covent Garden or hit the shops for a new outfit before hitting the bars for cocktails and dancing. Start your new life together in the lap of luxury.
