Whether you’re planning on a cosy cottage getaway in the country or a high-top city hotel, we reveal the top romantic destinations for 2012.
1. Goa, India
If you have the time and the money, it could be well worth taking a trip to this Indian beach paradise. It has lots to offer couples as both a party beach and a honeymooner’s haven. Some beaches in Goa still remain untouched despite the boom in tourism over the last decade.
2. Paris, France
With efficient transport links to the UK, there’s no better place for a short haul romantic trip abroad than Paris. The French capital is internationally renowned for being the most romantic city in the world. The bright lights of the Eiffel Tower bring the Parisian night sky to life, making it perfect for romantic strolls and fine dining.
3. Lake District, UK
If you want to stay a little closer to home, why not take a trip to the Lake District. The rolling countryside hills set against the backdrop of this vast and magical lake make it a great spot for relaxation and romance. If long walks and log cabins are your idea of true romance, then the Lake District could be ideal.
4. Venice, Italy
Another European city of love which has to figure in the top five is Venice. The home of Romeo and Juliet, over 150 canals, 400 bridges and magnificent architecture could leave you feeling more in love with the city than your partner! The stunning and seductive city will allow you to walk down winding, pebble stone streets to (hopefully) make great canal side restaurant discoveries.
5. Dorset, UK
Country pubs, secluded beach bays and charming old villages make Dorset the ideal location to see and do a lot, but at your own pace. From miles upon miles of unspoilt, typically English countryside to busy costal resorts, the county makes for a great romantic getaway.
