Valentine's Day is the perfect occasion to dust off the cobwebs of the softening winter and get outside for a romantic walk somewhere beautiful with the budding signs of spring, or that is steeped with an aura of love.
Here are 5 gorgeous and utterly romantic locations to take a stroll this Valentine's Day:
The Angles Way - Bungay to Beccles
A meandering walk that will take you across stretches of land that would have been traversed perhaps by Romans and most definitely the first Angle settlers. Along the way, you'll seldom lose track of the weaving path of the Waveney and encounter old ruined castles and wonderful wildlife.
Everyone loves a pretty chocolate box village, but this Brett Valley walk takes you through three: Bildeston, Monks Eleigh and Chelsworth. And with three villages come three opportunities to stop off for a bite to eat at a cosy pub.

You can't get a more romantic place to walk around than these magnificent Suffolk landscapes that have been immortalised on canvas by John Constable.
Lovers of anything Science Fiction will revel in the opportunity to take a walk along the UFO trail in Rendlesham Forest, which has been dubbed the site of 'Britain's Roswell' when reports of unusual occurrences took place in the last days of December in 1980. And just like how watching a horror movie on a date is the perfect excuse to get a little closer, this spooky little trail is actually rather romantic...
And even if you or your loved one aren't sci-fi nerds or remotely interested in alleged alien encounters, Rendlesham Forest is an absolutely gorgeous woodland to explore as it's situated in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Dogs are welcome in the woodlands too.

Alton Water is Suffolk's largest purpose-built reservoir with a perimeter of 8 miles and a further 400 acres of beautiful countryside, including woodlands and open fields.
These landscapes combine to make a stunning area for a romantic walk, and if you catch the sunset, everything becomes bathed in a pretty pink and orange hue which ups the atmosphere ever higher. Dogs are welcome though they must be kept on leads at all times and out of the water.
