Places to Kiss in Kirkby Lonsdale: a Valentine’s Day walk

Stroll through Kirkby Lonsdale with us this weekend as we discover the most romantic places to kiss your loved one on Valentine’s Day or to simply admire our beloved town and countryside…

Discover a Secret Passage Way

You’ll find this romantic secret passage way amongst the twists and turns in the beautiful town of Kirkby Lonsdale. Wander down Main Street towards the A65, admiring the wonderful shop windows, until you find this private pathway where you can quickly steal a kiss.

Stumble upon the Top of Mill Brow

Once you’ve found the secret passage way, amble to the opposite end of Main Street and turn right. Here you will stumble upon the perfect place to embrace your loved one as you gaze a the dreamy view of the fells from the top of Mill Brow.

Overlook Ruskin’s Beguiling View

From Mill Brow, walk through the Swine Market and follow the signs through the churchyard to Ruskin’s view. Choose this secluded bench at the end of the path and cuddle up to your loved one as you watch the sunlight glimmer across the water and the fells, only five minutes from the centre of beautiful Kirkby Lonsdale. Scan the QR code hanging off the bench to learn about the history behind Ruskin’s view and Turner’s renowned painting.

Wander through the Woods by the River Lune

Walking down from the Ruskin’s beguiling view,  you will soon meander right, downwards towards the river bank. You will see this beautiful bough which you can walk under hand in hand, stopping for a moment to treasure your sweetheart as well as the beauty of nature around you. 

Kiss amongst the Snowdrops

Once you’ve entered the enchanted woodlands, you’ll find a heavenly cluster of snowdrops right next to the trickling stream. Linger hear as you take in the angelic Cumbrian countryside and cherish your loved one among the flowers.
