When the weather is not treating you right, you might need a change of scenery to cheer you up. Take your loved one on an adventure they will remember for a long time, and make sure you plan ahead. Drive to your favorite city in the UK, book a night out at the theatre, get a table at the top rated restaurant, and make the best use of the hotel’s spa facilities. Below you will find five tips to plan the perfect weekend getaway.
1 – Decide Whether to Drive or Take the Train
Whether you are planning to visit Glasgow or London, you need to make a decision whether you want to drive for hours or take the train and relax in style. If your weekend away usually involves trying the local brew, driving might not be a good idea. The good news is that public transport in most major cities is good enough to get around in the weekend, so you might not need your car after all.
2 – Book Your Tickets Early
Find a theme for your weekend getaway. Whether you want to see a concert at a local venue or a show at the theatre, you need to book in time to avoid disappointment. Make sure that you can get to the venue safely and have your transport booked, so you don’t have to worry about finding the hotel after the long night. If you are planning to visit the opera or theatre, make sure your partner has custom suits for the occasion that matches your chosen outfit.
3 – Read Hotel Ratings

Before you book your hotel, check voucher and discount sites in the UK for inspiration. Head over to popular travel review sites to find out more about the location and facilities of the hotels you have shortlisted. Even if you book online, it might be a good idea to give the hotel a call to get first-hand experience of their customer service and find out whether or not they have some special weekend deals not listed on the internet.
4 – Book a Romantic Dinner

If you want to create a sense of luxury, search for the best venues in the town and book a table at an elegant restaurant. If you only stay for a few nights, you don’t want to spend most of your time searching for somewhere to eat, so do your research before you travel. Ask about the dress code, so you can get the right wardrobe packed for your luxury weekend away.
5 – Go On an Adventure Tour
For a truly amazing experience, book your tour in the region and head to the mountains, or visit the local spa for a couples treatment. Get climbing on walls, try bungee jumping, or book a helicopter ride for two.
Sometimes all we need to feel alive again is a spa break or a weekend away in a stunning city. Choose your destination carefully, look out for spa deals and beauty treatments, and have a romantic dinner followed by a theatre experience to reconnect with your loved one.
