Scenic locations where you can't stop yourself from posing

Whether you’re planning a romantic weekend getaway, looking to explore historic places or just looking for somewhere close to home to take someone special, we have you covered. Share the love and capture the moment with our top ‘Instagram-worthy’ places to visit across the UK below.

Weekend Getaway to the Cotswolds

The Cotswolds have a reputation for being one of the most romantic and breath-taking places in the UK. Wisk away your other half for a weekend full of picturesque activities. Feel like a royal walking through the historic grounds of Sudeley Castle & Gardens. This charming palace is surrounded by the countryside hills which boast a presence in England’s regal history over the last 1,000 years. Make sure to visit the Secret Garden, one of the most romantic spots on the grounds for the perfect photo.

Continuing your ventures in the Cotswolds, a visit to the Gloucester Cathedral is a must. Enjoy a delicious afternoon tea in the Monk's Kitchen cafe, take a trip up the Tower for an amazing view, visit the tomb of King Edward II or follow in the footsteps of Harry Potter around the Cloisters for some great photo-ops.

Greenwich; London’s Hidden Gem

Only a stone throws away from central London, follow the Thames river east toward the Royal Borough of Greenwich for a day full of fun and adventure.

Greenwich is home to some of London’s most historic landmarks such as The Old Royal Naval College and the Cutty Sark which is the world’s sole-surviving tea clipper. Try to capture a cheeky selfie as you wander through the recently restored Painted Hall by James Thornhill, a favourite backdrop in many Hollywood films. Feeling peckish? Head over to the neighbouring Greenwich market for some mouth-watering street food. We recommend taking some with you to savour at one of the best views of London from the Royal Observatory. The journey to the Observatory is just as picturesque as the view from it. Walk through the lush green gardens of Greenwich Park towards the top of the hill for the perfect panoramic photo. Explore the Prime Meridian of the world and London’s Planetarium.

Discover the coastlines of Cornwall

A mixture of scenic beauty, idyllic coastlines and breath-taking gardens, Cornwall is the perfect place to whisk away your loved one. The list of picturesque places to stay here is truly endless.

A trip to Cornwall isn’t complete without seeing the coastlines. Make sure to visit the Lizard peninsula, the most southerly part of the British mainland. Two miles north of Lizard Village lies the secluded Kynance Cove, considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. A few miles further along this stretch of this coastline, the beautiful picture-postcard harbour at Mullion Cove protects a small fishing fleet from the ferocious Atlantic storms. Be sure to stop at St Michael’s Mount, one of the most famous landmarks in Cornwall. Indulge in the area’s history with a trip to the castle and a stroll along the beaches for dazzling panoramic views.

Immerse yourself in the enchanting and mysterious greenery of The Lost Gardens of Heligan. These ancient gardens were recovered from the brambles of time in the 1990s and became one of the largest garden restoration projects in European history. You won’t be able to put your camera down as you explore the abundance of relics and wildlife set across 200 acres of land.
