You don’t need to go jetsetting around the world to have a romantic weekend away with someone special. Online dating is renowned for being a great way to meet the perfect match, but once you move past the online flirting and first date then you’ll want to waste no time in getting closer with free dating in the UK. So to help take your relationship to the next level, why not plan a show-stopping idea for a romantic (/dirty) weekend away? Here are 5 top ideas around the country.
1. The Lake District
If it was good enough for the romantic poets then it’s good enough for our FreeAndSingle community. The Lake District is a beautiful place for a weekend away, with pretty cottages, cool camping spots and even glamping offering plenty of places to stay with that sizzling new partner. Long walks with a pub at the end are a great way to get to know one another if you’re the down-to-earth sort.
On the other hand, if bright lights and city sights get you more excited, then London really is an impressive destination for a weekend away. Stay in a swanky hotel and see a show on the West End… then continue the evening with cocktails at the Shard or a night on the town. Oh, and during the day you’ll be spoilt for choice with tourist attractions and cafes!
3. Norfolk Broads
For something a bit quirky, a weekend on a long boat in the Norfolk Broads is a really unique date idea with plenty to see and do. Explore the waterways of this stunning county and get cosy in your boat on an evening, as you spend some time alone on the waters getting to know one another. And you’re guaranteed to have a laugh trying to moor up and board the boat after a drink or two.
Make waves with your date by heading away for a weekend on the sunny coast of Cornwall. This gorgeous coastline is great for any thrill-seekers and sporty couples who love being out on the water, and when the sun sets you’ll find plenty of good pubs, bars and places to stay.
Take a step back in time and relax in the beautiful market town of Stratford-Upon-Avon. The birthplace of Shakespeare has long been renowned as a hotspot for romantic getaways in the UK, and you can easily spend the weekend rowing on the river, dining in historic buildings and learning a little history along the way. Memorise some Shakespeare and impress them with your knowledge when you arrive!
After the initial excitement and mystery of flirting with someone online and setting up that big first date, online dating can often lead to sweet success stories. So if you’re starting to get serious with a man or woman who you’ve met in the FreeAndSingle community, why not think about whisking them away for the weekend to one of these romantic getaways in the UK?
