Top 7 Romantic Ways to Celebrate A Weekend in the UK


No matter if you and your partner have started dating a couple of months ago or are together for three years now, an excellent weekend getaway is something that every couple needs. Here are the top seven romantic ways to celebrate the weekend in the UK, and make it more happening and lively.

Go Countryside Camping

Camping is the best option for you two to get away from the busy life of the city. Take your camping gear, essential things, raw food items, some utensils, and put them in the back of your car. As per our experiences, the best camping site in the UK for a romantic couple would be Camasunary. This scenic site is at the Isle of Skye, Scotland.

You can set up your tent by the beach, and spend the evening cooking dinner and gazing at the spectacular meet of the mountains and the sea. Moreover, wake up early after a good night’s sleep to experience one of the most beautiful sunrises in the UK. Brew yourself some coffee and plan your day in and around the terrain.

Stay in A Royal Castle

Did you always want to stay in a castle when you were a child? If yes, then this step is your best chance to fulfill that wish. Castle Lachlan is one of the few remaining inhabitable castles in the country. The manor belongs to the Scottish high-clan Maclachlan, and the family who owns the castle lives in the prominent half of it. The other half is available for people to book and spend quality time. You and your partner can drive to this incredible castle, and book a room for two.

Enjoy the authentic Scottish cuisine like Kedgeree (a dish with rice and fish), Stovies (Scottish comfort food), et cetera. If you are dating and want to marry your partner, you can also propose to them and book the castle for your wedding. Yes, they have this facility available here too.

An Artistic Getaway to London

The theatres, art galleries, and museums of London are the perfect place to spend a weekend for couples who adore art. You can book a pair of tickets to the most authentic museums such as the British Museum, National Gallery, and Freemasons Hall for the day trip.

You can also enjoy authentic English dishes like fish and chips, chicken tikka, cottage pie, and onion soup for lunch after your trip to the museum.

In the evening, you can book yourself two seats to see an excellent romantic play with your lover. After the play ends, head on to a local brewery to enjoy English beer and evening snacks. As the day ends, take a peaceful stroll to your night’s stay to refresh for the next morning.

Witness the Splendid Skyline

If you and your partner are excited about seeing a city like London from a bird’s eye, your best chance is to witness the city from an authentic rooftop restaurant. London has many options when we talk about rooftop restaurants. Treat your partner with a glass of high-end champagne, eight-course dinner, and dessert. You can click pictures to cherish the memory of you two with the beautiful city of London in the backdrop. You can try the Helix restaurant, which is on top of Gherkin.

Adventure for A Change

Birthdays and anniversaries become predictable when you are in a relationship for a long time. But make this year unpredictable by taking your better half on a ride that will surge their adrenaline. Set sail in the speedboats by the harbor of Thames. These speed boats take their riders on a fast trip through the Thames river. By the end of the boat ride, both of you will witness a majority of the capital’s monuments. The drivers often keep their romantic playlist on when they see a lovely couple. Click pictures with beautiful architectural marvels like the Big Ben and Tower Bridge in the frame, and enjoy the soothing wind as it blows through your hair. This ride will be a perfect day out for couples who love adventure.

Unplanned Exploration in Northern Ireland

Planning a weekend is mainstream. Contrast your choices this weekend. You can take your partner to Northern Ireland, rent a car there, and go on to explore the beautiful island country.

The best route to drive on is Causeway Coastal Route, in Ballintoy. The beauty is such that you’ll think you are driving on a film set. There are fields of lush grass on either side of roads that lead to winsome destinations like Dunluce Castle and the Giant’s Causeway.

The atmosphere is soothingly cold and to warm yourself, you can pay a visit to the most iconic distillery of Northern Ireland – The Old Bushmills Whiskey Distillery. Make sure to have some ravishing cheese types with flavorful liquor in the open fields of the country.

Visit The 1900s Via A Train

Could there be anything better than a train journey through the breathtaking green valleys and exquisite Loch Morar? Book two tickets for the Jacobite Steam Train under the supervision of the West Coast Railway. The train covers the distance between Fort William and Mallaig in Scotland. It also has a halt at Glenfinnan, a village undisturbed by the busy factors of city life. What’s more interesting about this train ride is the fact that this very train and route were in the Harry Potter movies as the Hogwarts Express and the way leading to it.

If you are planning to go in the year 2020, remember the below guidelines, keeping COVID-19 in mind:

  • Don’t shake hands with anyone, adopt the Indian Namaste.
  • Carry a first-aid kit with you. Keep multivitamins, antiviral drugs, and painkillers on hand to avoid damage.


All the above recommendations are the best things you can do with your partner to spend a romantic weekend in the United Kingdom. As the title suggests, you can do these things in a couple of days or so. Take a short break and reconnect with your lover to make the relationship livelier.

Such wonderful trips to look forward to! 😉
