Walk hand in hand while exploring a new romantic city such as Bath, Windsor or Edinburgh or head to Brighton for a taste of the cosmopolitan coast and hours of walking through its cute cobbled streets. Fancy some fresh romantic air? Then pick a restful break in the countryside – we love the Cotswolds with its scattered rural picturesque villages and market towns, while the Lake District is perfect for scenery and those cosy country pubs. Just don’t forget your flat shoes!
If exploring isn’t your thing then indulge in a weekend of pampering and visit a spa.

Health and safety
If you’re in the later stages of your pregnancy then make sure you find out where the nearest hospital is, or consider the drive before you book. If you’re planning a spa break then it’s worth noting many mum-to-be treatments aren’t suitable for bumps before 12 weeks so make sure you ask before booking.
When to go
The British weather isn’t always as predictable as its foreign counterparts. However, if your bump permits then opt for the late spring/summer. Opting for a babymoon in the winter? Wrap up your bump, pack those waterproofs and use that cold weather to get extra cuddly with your other half.
Things to do
Take a country walk and find a cosy pub, indulge in some baby shopping in London or Manchester or take a trip on a punt in Cambridge. Spend your days lounging around the pool at a city spa, and book a theatre performance for the evening, or pick a rural retreat and hide away with your other half for some much needed R&R.
If you’re planning on travelling on public transport make sure you invest in a ‘Baby on Board’ badge, which lets other passengers know you are pregnant. If you’re showing and need a seat don’t be shy to ask fellow travellers to get up – there are priority seats for pregnant women.
Bounty team's top travel tips
For a cool short break head to Brighton’s Chocolate hotel, walk along the cobbled lanes and get some fresh sea air. Looking for an afternoon with you and the other half? Go for an afternoon tea at a top hotel, or visit your local historical house. Handpicked hotels have a great range of spa treatments for mum- we love the mum-to-be package, while Centre Parcs with or without the kids is a great choice too!
