Romance ideas in the UK

Lancelot & Guinevere and Robin Hood & Maid Marian, Mr Darcy & Elizabeth Bennett and Romeo & Juliet, Victoria & Albert and William & Kate. From the legendary to the literary, let the great lovers inspire your romantic breaks in England. Whether it’s strolling hand in hand on country walks, stargazing into velvet blue skies, or laying down a private picnic on a hidden beach, there are plenty of places for romance in England. If all this sounds too traditional, a 21st-century romantic holiday can be enjoyed in hedonistic haunts. Choose raunchy weekends in courtesan bedrooms, indulgent spa breaks and pitch-black restaurants.
