When it comes to romantic destinations for couples, the one place that instantly pops into our minds, and even Google searches for that matter, is the city of Paris, popularly referred to as the city of ‘love and romance’. Many couples save a fortune only to visit France once in their lives, just so they can spend time under the Eiffel Tower with their better half, which is so typical nowadays.

But, are you one of those couples who like to visit off-beat, less explored, less crowded but really romantic destinations? You are in the right place! This blog will cover some beautiful and romantic places for couples who are planning to take an international holiday. And no, it will not burn a hole in your pocket, nor are we talking about France!

We are talking about the land of royals, wizards, and picturesque sites. Yes, the United Kingdom!
The United Kingdom ranks among the top 5 travel destinations in the world. The country has so many romantic locations. Couples, you cannot go wrong by thinking of the UK as your next destination for a holiday.

Let’s understand more about tourism in the UK, the impact of Brexit, and more…

The UK welcomed over 40 million tourists from around the world in 2019, which is huge; and the country even ranks 10th on the list of most-visited countries in the world.

Ever since Brexit in 2020, it has been speculated that various industries would have to face the consequences. One such industry was tourism and hospitality.

Brexit was followed by a pandemic, which made the conditions even worse.

In 2020, the UK saw a little over 11 million tourists, dipping even more to 7.4 million in 2021. The Brexit and pandemic shock waves not only impacted the UK, but the country also saw more and more British people moving out of the UK.

However, ever since COVID-19 cases started to decrease and the borders were open for international visitors, the number of tourists entering the UK escalated quickly, with over 21 million tourists visiting the UK in just 4 months of 2022.

Now that there are no restrictions on travel, it is safe to say that the UK should definitely be a part of your 2022 bucket list.

Let’s explore what places to see and the TOP 10 romantic getaways in the United Kingdom after Brexit for couples.

Consisting of 4 countries (England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland), the UK has diverse scenic landscapes, intricate European architecture, crystal clear beaches, adventurous hills, and multi-culture cuisine – a paradise for food lovers.
