Looking for a weekend of bliss after tying the knot? While you might be thinking about an exotic holiday a bit later down the line, to celebrate your nuptials, there is nothing like a mini-break in the UK to bask in the newly-wed bliss. Here are some of the best UK destinations, to enjoy your newly-wed bubble.
Isle of Skye, Scotland
Located on Scotland’s northwest coast, the Isle of Skye is surrounded by picturesque villages, nautical lighthouses, distilleries, castles and endless green landscapes. Newlyweds who are visiting the Isle of Skye should check out the Fairy Pools. If you’re brave enough to enter the water, these pools make for excellent locations for Wild Swimming. It is a relatively easy walk, so couples at all levels of hiking fitness can take in these romantic views.
Belfast, Northern Ireland
Belfast has a rich historical background and plenty of things to do. The most obvious attraction is the Titanic Belfast museum, which showcases hands-on displays, recreated decks and cabins from the world-famous ship. There is also plenty of architecture to marvel at, such as Belfast Castle, Parliament buildings, Cavehill and the City Hall building. There is also plenty of opportunity for a romantic stroll through botanical gardens or forest parks.
There is so much to do and see in London, making it the perfect destination for newlyweds. Whether you want an evening of theatre and fine dining, a day of hitting the markets or just to take in the sights and sounds, there is nothing London can’t offer. Best of all, there are countless photo opportunities, so you and your SO can capture your honeymoon in style. No matter where you are in the UK, it’s easy to get to London. If you’re looking to save a few quid after the big day, simply book train tickets with National Rail.
After the rush of a wedding, the idea of heading to a secluded location is extremely appealing. Why not head up to Northumberland, and take in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Northumberland boasts almost 40 miles of coastline, ancient history and Europe’s largest Dark Skies Park. Be sure to take your swimming costume, so you and your partner can take a dip in one of the bays, after you catch a glimpse of the sunrise in front of Bamburgh Castle.
Lake District, England
The Lake District is known as one of the most romantic destinations in the UK. You and your loved one can venture to England’s biggest national park, full of lakes, walks, hills and tearooms and shops. Booking out a cottage for a week in the Lakes is one of the most relaxing things you can do, especially after spending months planning and preparing for something as big and stressful as a wedding!
Enjoy some much needed time away as a couple, to do the things the two of you enjoy. You’ll need it after the pressure of planning a wedding.
