With Valentine’s Day just around the corner we thought we’d give you a helping hand in showing you some of the best places you can whisk your partner away. Whether you’re looking for a UK break for a few days or something further afield, we’re here to help you plan your most romantic getaway yet!
UK – The Cotswolds
Quintessentially British, there’s nothing more romantic than a weekend break to the Cotswolds. Hire a cosy cottage and spend days strolling hand in hand through picture-perfect countryside, tripping from one traditional pub to the next. Spend evenings next to a roaring fire or star-gaze outside whilst snuggled up under a blanket for a truly laid-back getaway.
Getting to the Cotswolds
Thanks to its location, the Cotswolds is one of the easiest places in the UK to visit, with easy motorway access – you can even stop off at Gloucester services to pick up some essential supplies for your weekend!
Europe – Paris
Perhaps the most romantic city in Europe, Paris is the perfect place for a romantic getaway. Wander down the Champs-Elysees and do a spot of shopping and take a boat ride along the Seine. Climb the steps to the Sacre-Couer, or head to the top of the Arc de Triomphe for specular views of the city.
To see the city of lights by night, enjoy a romantic dinner for two at the top of the Eiffel Tower. If it’s your first time in Paris, look for hotels in the 7th Arrondissement and if you’re on a budget the 18th Arrondissement is one of the most wallet-friendly neighbourhoods to stay.
Getting to Paris
Make your romantic getaway all the more special with a trip on the Eurostar. Before boarding the train head to St Pancras Champagne Bar by Searcys and have a glass or two whilst sitting at Europe’s longest Champagne bar. It’s the perfect way to start your romantic getaway.
Further afield – Maldives
Pull out all the stops for the ultimate romantic getaway to the Maldives. Lying in between India and Sri Lanka, they are known as one of the most romantic archipelagos in the world.
The epitome of a paradise island, the Maldives enjoys white sandy beaches, crystal azure seas and incredible marine life. For one of the most romantic experiences visit the Glowing Beach at night and see the dazzling green-blue glow that occurs on the shore, giving the illusion of a sea of stars.
Getting to the Maldives
With direct flights taking around 11 hours from the UK to the Maldives, you can save the added stress of getting to the airport by travelling by train using web duo tickets – so you’ll arrive at the airport relaxed and raring to go.
So, what you are you waiting for? Start planning your romantic getaway and have your best Valentine’s Day yet!
