Guest Writer #107: “The most romantic UK spots”

Here is the latest article sent to us directly from eharmony. Gigi has been to England many times, and wishes she lived close enough to have her next date there!!

The most beautiful time of the year is upon us. Late summer and early autumn bring us bright colours and wonderful scenery, perfect for a romantic walk. In fact, the season opens up a whole avenue of opportunities for lovers. Starlit picnics, bike rides, candlelit dinners on a canal boat – whether you’re dating in Sheffield or dating in the Hertfordshire countryside, you’ll find plenty of ways to enjoy the pleasant weather. Here are some of the UK’s outdoor dating highlights that you shouldn’t miss at this time of year.

Hampstead Heath

Like many of the more majestic city parks, Hampstead Heath is a splash of green and tranquillity in the middle of the hubbub of a bustling, manic metropolis. But this is only a small part of what makes it magical. The view of the whole of the cityscape from the top of Parliament Hill, the bathing ponds, Kenwood House and all of its flowered walkways and Victorian bridges are just a few of the highlights. A date here will always be a memorable and special occasion.

The West Highland Way

For a slightly more hardcore outdoor romantic experience, take a trip along the West Highland Way. This meandering walk starts in the city of Glasgow and will take about four days to complete. The slog is definitely worth it, though, as you will meander through some of the most picturesque scenery in Britain. Camping on the hillside as you go and waking up to that breath-taking view will provide some amazing moments to share with your partner.

The White Cliffs of Dover

This renowned feature of the British coastline is really worth a visit if you haven’t been. A fantastic view of the channel, flocks of seagulls, stunning cliff-side walks and maybe a bite to eat in Dover itself – it’s a romantic day out you wouldn’t want to miss. Just make sure to avoid the traffic of those travelling over to France and beyond from the busy port.

The Giant’s Causeway

This bizarre piece of geography in Northern Ireland, linking the Irish and Scottish coasts, is a sight to behold. Legend has it that the causeway was created by two warriors thousands of years ago, although scientists claim that volcanic activity caused the hexagonal shapes to form in the rock. This is certainly an amazing place for some romantic exploring.


The Lake District has a romantic view around every corner, and the third highest mountain in England, Helvellyn (also in this region), surpasses the majority of them. The expansive tarn just below the summit of the mountain means that walkers have to choose one of two narrow ridges to reach the top – Swirral Edge or the much more precarious Striding Edge. This walk is not for novices, but everyone will enjoy the thrill of the walk and the final incredible view from the highest point.

The beauty of the UK is all too often underestimated. Go and find a date – through a friend or on a dating site. EHarmony is one of the top online dating sites at the moment – and get out together into one of the UK’s most gorgeous, romantic spots!
