The north of Britain is home to so many beautiful places just waiting for you to visit. Whether you were born and bred in the north, or you’re just passing through you need to find out what it has to offer! From awe-filled art galleries, to beautiful gardens a visit to the country’s northern counties won’t leave you disappointed.  Here are my top five romantic places you need to visit in the north:

1 – Rufford Old Hall, Lancashire –

According to the National Trust, Rufford Old Hall is the home of tales of romance and wealth. So if your on the Lancashire dating scene, this one is for you. The hall is full of history, with tapestries dating as far back as the 1500s. You can also take a stroll through the Victorian and Edwardian gardens, what better way to spend you day!

2 – Leeds Art Gallery –

The Leeds dating scene wouldn’t be complete without its spectacular art gallery. This gallery is recognised by the government as being a collection of ‘national importance’ and it’s the ideal budget date, as entry to the gallery is free. Romantic and money saving all in one!

3 – Floors Castle, Scottish Borders –

Built in the 1720s, Floors Castle and gardens offer a beautifully insightful day out to those in the Borders dating area. Also, if you’re a movie fan you’ll interested to know that the castle was featured in the film The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes. That’s a whole load of history all in one!

4 – Biddulph Grange Garden, Staffordshire –

This Victorian garden is the ideal spot for the over 50s dating Staffordshire way. These fascinating gardens take you on a worldwide trip from Italy, to Egypt and even through to China. Amazingly this garden is the home to the oldest golden lark in the UK, which was brought over from China in the 1850s. If history is your thing, this beautifully romantic garden is for you!

5 – Liverpool’s World Museum –

There’s nothing to say that museum visits should only be for the over 50s dating Mersyside folks! This museum offers history, culture and the ideal date for those with a thirst for knowledge. Liverpool’s World Museum also has an eye catching cafe, making it the perfect place for a lunch date!
