Re-enact romantic scenes

A romantic walk 

There’s nothing more important on Valentine’s Day than spending time together – and what better way than by going for a good long walk. You could spend a day exploring the peninsula at Trelissick, Cornwall, and watching the ever-changing views of the estuary. Or take a walk at Sheringham Park, Norfolk, with its wide open spaces, beautiful gardens designed by Humphry Repton and uninterrupted views of the north Norfolk coastline.
