Four Special Romantic Country And City Breaks In England

Matt Crisp January 15, 2024

It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and if you are planning to spend a special weekend away with your loved one, there’s no need to look further than the amazing destinations we have here in the UK. Here are a few ideas for booking a coach hire ticket and spending a happy and memorable few days away in a romantic English location.


The walled city of Chester is a classic tourist destination with plenty of boutique hotels and award-winning restaurants for a perfect weekend getaway. The quaint city centre is full of historical and architectural interest, with independent shops alongside leading brands. Take a walk along the Roman walls and onwards along the banks of the River Dee.

The border of Wales is just a short drive away, offering a gateway to beautiful countryside and attractions such as the stunning Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. This is a UNESCO world heritage site that was designed to span the Llangollen Valley in the Victorian era, and remains a remarkable feat of engineering.

Round off your weekend with a visit to the 700-year old Chirk Castle and gardens. The castle has a well preserved 18th century interior, while the superbly maintained grounds and woodlands are perfect for a winter walk. Keep an eye out for early snowdrops along the many trails through the 480 acre park.


Cornwall is of course hugely popular in the summer months, but it has a special romantic feel in winter when its charms can be enjoyed without the thronging crowds. There are a wealth of glorious windswept beaches and hidden coves to explore, with stunning views wherever you turn.

Visit Land’s End and Marazion for a trip to the iconic St Michael’s Mount, the fascinating tiny island community with a Mediaeval church and a castle. The area is full of natural beauty and steeped in romance and legend, from the enduring myth of King Arthur to classic fiction such as Winston Graham’s much-loved Poldark series. 

The Lake District

The allure of the Lakes needs no introduction, as it is world famous for the rugged beauty of its landscapes. It is especially breathtaking at this time of year when the peaks and fells are dusted with snow. 

The inspiration for some of our finest Romantic poets such as William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the region has attracted countless artists and writers over the decades.  Book a cosy cottage or a luxurious night in a country hotel and get away from it all with your loved one. Make it a soul restoring weekend surrounded with nature.


Shakespeare was never short of words when it came to matters of the heart. Visit the birthplace of the world’s most celebrated playwright, whose tales of great love that conquers all are timeless and enduring. Visit the very house where the Bard entered the world, and then take a stroll around Anne Hathway’s Cottage and the lovely gardens.

In the evening, take a chance to immerse yourself in culture and experience the unforgettable intensity of Shakerperaian drama at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.
