There is little doubt that love can blossom in Shakespeare’s England, a corner of Warwickshire that is blessed with history, culture and beauty. It makes the perfect destination for romantic days out and there are plenty of ideas for things to do with your loved one.
You might wish to take in a performance by the Royal Shakespeare Company, stroll hand-in-hand through picturesque market towns and quaint villages, visit a museum, art gallery or stately home, explore the romantic ruins of Kenilworth Castle, or simply enjoy a quiet meal together in an award-winning restaurant.
No day out would be complete without visiting Shakespeare's Birthplace or one of the four other Shakespeare houses. The most romantic is Anne Hathaway’s Cottage and Gardens – where it is easy to picture the Great Bard courting his future wife.
Many couples on days out in Warwickshire find romance on the River Avon or River Leam. Whether you choose to row your own boat or prefer to relax on a guided river cruise, there are few experiences more romantic than gently gliding down the river, past weeping willows and stunning scenery.
