While going abroad is one of the most popular options for the happy couple’s honeymoon, there are those who decide they want to stay at home in the UK. Not only does the UK have its own selection of beautiful honeymoon locations—they’re often cheaper too. So here are 5 perfect UK mini moons.
The adventurous couple won’t find the UK lacking in adrenaline-pumping mini moons. From water sports on a lake, mountaineering, gliding, and cave exploring in the hills, and even scuba diving on the coast, you can quench your inner dare-devil hand-in-hand with your partner. And for the more laid-back adventurers, a beautiful walk in a national park or a pony ride along the beach could be more your cup of tea. As the saying goes: the couple that plays together stays together!
2) By the Coast
Run away to the beach for a week of sea and sand. The UK has thousands of miles of coastline for you to see, so go and enjoy a gorgeous sunset over the ocean with your new husband or wife. Ride a ferris wheel on the pier and play bumper-cars at the theme park.
3) The Adventure
Travel the UK and immerse yourself in everything that interests you: castle ruins, museums, national landmarks. Everything you ever wanted to see but didn’t have time for—do it!
4) Calm Retreat
Retreat to a cosy cottage where you and your partner can relax. Be it a log cabin in a forest or a holiday home in the hills of a national park, wind down together after the whirlwind of your wedding. Even something as small as an evening stargazing will be magical (and you may even see the Northen Lights in certain areas).
5) The City-Lovers
The couple that loves the buzz of the city will love a mini moon full of urban opulence. Fancy restaurants, theatres, clubs, and high-end hotels in the big city will give you a week to remember.
6) Learn a New Hobby
The couple that loves to learn new things and try new experiences together will have great fun taking part in different fun classes–take part in anything from arts and crafts classes, dance classes, cooking classes, photography classes, etc. It’ll be all the more fun when you do it together.
