Romantic city break destinations from Newcastle

With February the most romantic month of the year, why not treat your partner to a romantic city break?


Known the world over as the most romantic city on the planet, Paris tops the list for Valentine’s city breaks with so much on offer for you and your significant other. If it’s stunning views you’re after, head to the top of the Eiffel Tower for aerial vistas or sail down the River Seine for a closer look at the city’s charm. The French capital also has a whole host of cosy bistros, charming restaurants and lavish eateries – you’ll be spoilt for choice.


For a romantic break straight out of a fairy tale, why not head to Prague? The narrow cobblestone streets, haunting castles and unbelievable architecture will make you feel like you’ve been transported through time. Treat your partner to a horse-drawn carriage ride through the Old Town or a night at the opera to make the most of this magical, medieval destination.


Madrid is the home of Valentine’s – quite literally – as some of the saint’s remains can be found in Iglesia de San Anton. After a trip to this church in the Spanish capital, continue your date at one of the city’s famous Flamenco shows or indulge in some delicious tapas for two.


If you’re looking for a cosy trip filled with romantic strolls, pubs with open fires and a breath of fresh air by the sea, Dublin’s the place to be. With a flight time of just over an hour, you and your loved one could be meandering through Ireland’s largest city, along the banks of the River Liffey, in no time at all.

New York

See the city’s skyscrapers from the Top of The Rock, enjoy a picnic in Central Park or catch a Broadway show – the list of things to do for any couple in the Big Apple is endless.
