The ArcelorMittal Orbit is red, the Thames is blue (on a good day), London’s the most romantic city in the UK, woohoo!

The votes are in, and this year London takes the top spot as the most romantic city in the whole of the United Kingdom. Last year’s annual ‘Destination Romance Report’ revealed the Lake District as the most popular location for getaways with loved ones. But this year we must favour pop-ups and craft beer over trekking and kendal mint cake, because London won with three percent more votes than that lush, green, lakey location.

The survey, by booking site Hotels.com showed that almost one fifth of the nation decided that London was the best place to take a loved one this year. But apparently it’s just us young’uns who swayed the vote, as when reviewing the responses of those over 45, the Lakes still came out on top.

If you’re looking to go further afield for your romantic dates, get yourself over to the Lakes or Cornwall, or check out the full top ten list of romantic UK destinations below.

Percentage of votes

1. London 18%

2. Lake District 15%

3. Cornwall 7%

4. Cotswolds 6%

5. Edinburgh 6%

6. Stratford-Upon-Avon 5%

7. York (new entry) 4%

8. Devon (new entry) 3%

9. Bristol (new entry) 2%

10. Cardiff (new entry) 2%

On a side note, the same survey also placed London as the third least romantic city in the country. Buuut we’re gonna ignore that part.
