Five romantic things to do together in the UK during the month of June

Romantic Ideas to do together in JuneWith thousands of romantic things to do with your partner in the UK during (hopefully) a warm and sunny June, where do you begin deciding where to spend time cuddling, smooching and enjoying each others company?

Here are five suggestions that will give you some ideas and make the month of June a memorable one for you and your favourite person.

1. Dorset–Cerne Abbas Giant

Thought to be an ancient pagan symbol of fertility, the Cerne Abbas Giant in Dorset has attracted (and aroused) couples for years because of the giant’s “upstanding” attribute and erotic appearance.  The giant has also been likened to Hercules, a Roman figure usually drawn or sculpted as a well-developed figure entering battle totally naked–except for a lion skin draped over his shoulder.

Located near the charming village of Cerne Abbas, the well-endowed giant of a man has been carved into chalk rock on Giant Hill and may be thousands of years old–or several hundred years old, depending on which historian you believe. Folk beliefs about the Cerne Abbas giant claim that women who sleep on the giant are “blessed” with a strong sex drive. It is also said that infertility can be reversed if a couple make love on top of the giant–or, more precisely, directly on his phallus.

2. Cardiff, Wales–the Llandaff Ghost Walk

What could be more romantic than clutching each other close during a ghost walk and returning to the warm, comfy safety of your bed and breakfast room and the glow of a lovely fireplace? Take this walk through an ancient village alive (or dead!) with abandoned graveyards, dusty ruins, darkly wooded lanes and the possibility of sinister phantoms moaning in you and your lover’s ear.  A guide bearing a torch leads you through the spooky ghost walk while telling tales of past ghost sightings and strange doings in the village.

3. Scottish Highlands

Scenic trails, sparkling streams, impressive visuals of lovely meadows and dramatic mountain peaks will awake the romantic souls in any couple visiting the Scottish Highlands in June. Hold hands while exploring majestic castles, embrace each other while taking boat cruises on Loch Ness or Loch Shiel and stroll through the picturesque villages of Plockton and Loch Carron. Romantic accommodation is also available in the Scottish Highlands that include the Westhaven B&B and the Ryeford B&B, which is less than a mile from downtown Inverness.

4. Stratford-Upon-Avon

Book a room at the luxurious Arden Hotel and let the romantic ambiance of this beautiful boutique hotel warm your hearts (and your bodies) as you snuggle in a big, soft bed and watch Casablanca on a giant, flat-screen television. The Arden also hosts jazz music on Sundays, food and ale evenings and themed holiday weekends. There’s also a champagne bar where you can toast your soul-mate with glasses of bubbly while whispering sweet nothings into his or her ear.

Across from the Arden is the famous Royal Shakespeare Company Theatre where you might catch a showing of “Romeo and Juliet” before heading back to that wonderfully chic Champagne Bar.

5. Belfast, Northern Ireland

Intimate, romantic Darcy’s Restaurant in the heart of Belfast offers delicious British dishes as well as an impressive wine list and candlelight dining. Feed your partner fresh grapes and apply chutney or Darcy’s famous “Pavlova Stack”, a delectable serving of ice cream, chocolate sauce and nuts and fresh cream. After dining, explore Cave Hill Country Park and its walking trails and breathtaking views of quiet, misty Northern Ireland
