With love in the air on Valentine’s Day Newquay has been crowned as the UK’s best location for a romantic getaway.

The town topped Park Holiday’s latest study that delves into the most enchanting and romantic destinations across the UK, away from the hustle and bustle of main cities, because of its “breath-taking beaches” and “many fun date-night activities.”

The new study has looked at 20 locations outside of the UK’s main cities where couples can go to rest and relax. 

The study looks into numerous metrics, such as romantic places to dine, activities commonly associated with dating spots, and of course, most picturesque spots (according to social media) to reveal the best locations for a romantic getaway in the UK.  

A spokesperson for Park Holidays said: “Newquay is the UK's most romantic getaway, with no shortage of ways to spend quality time together. 

“Newquay scores highly across the board in Park Holiday’s index, with cinema and bowling options, a great variety of 4*+ romantic 31 restaurants available and of course, it sits on the coast making it a great location for a romantic walk on the beach. 

“The famed Newquay beach is known for its beautiful white sand and emerald-blue water, perfect for a lazy day spent in the sun.”

Anglesey ranks in second place for romantic UK getaways, and top for the most picturesque romantic destination in the UK.

Chichester in Sussex came third for most romantic getaways in the UK, Lowestoft fourth and Whitstable fifth.
