As Valentine’s Day approaches, couples all over the country will be preparing to celebrate their relationships. But where’s the most romantic place in the UK?
According to research from Amazon Books UK, Bristol is the most romantic city in the UK, beating Manchester, Birmingham and London. The citizens of Bristol purchased more romantic books than residents in any other city during 2023.
Bristol is also one of the UK’s most walkable cities, making it the perfect destination for a romantic stroll.
The city sits on the banks of the River Avon and it’s one of England’s most creative cities, with a great offering of art galleries.
The birthplace of Banksy, the city has a buzzing street art scene while tourists will find a range of contemporary and classic art at Bristol Art Gallery.
Down by the former port, tourists will find the Spike Island and Arnolfini art galleries, each of which have top-rated cafes and contemporary art.
If history is more your thing, don’t miss the SS Great Britain museum which takes tourists inside and below Brunel’s iconic ship in an interactive experience.
Brunel’s Clifton Suspension Bridge is another top sight and couples looking for something extra special could book a hot air balloon ride over the bridge.
