When the daffodils bloom, York becomes one of the England’s most picturesque destinations for couples. The area’s vast natural beauty is most welcoming in the spring, before crowds arrive in droves to commence their summer vacations. In these mellower months, the gardens at York Minster offer some solitude along its paths. Couples can enjoy longer days on the exquisite banks of the rivers Ouse and Foss, which join at York. When the spring sun hits their waters, there is likely no more beautiful sight in the United Kingdom. No vacation to the region would be complete without time spend in some traditional pubs. Toast to your dearie and retire to a stone cottage or luxury yurt for a romantic getaway in historic York.
