Best weekend coach trips for couples

Sterlings run a variety of weekend trips and some of these are particularly enjoyable for couples, including the Country Living Tour, where you'll see the best of the romantic town of Harrogate, and can even spend your free time relaxing in its spas. Its second destination is the beautiful, historic city of York, which drips in culture, good food and exuberant nightlife.

Just Go Holidays runs slightly longer weekend trips to a number of UK cities and seaside resorts. Their Amsterdam mini-break starts from £59 and allows you and your loved one to stroll Amsterdam's canals, relax in its parks and gardens and visit its museums all within 3 days.

Some of the most popular weekend coach breaks include zoos and safari parks, with Chester Zoo and Hotel among the most visited. UK theme parks are also fantastic places to spend the weekend, Alton Towers and Chessington World of adventures are popular hotspots. For younger families weekend trips to Cadbury World, Legoland and Diggerland are highly recommended and are great fun.
