Romance is more popular than ever. From starlit roof-top cinemas to magical, creative proposal agencies, these days romantic gestures are a lot more imaginative than a bunch of flowers. With 20,000 kisses, 20,000 love stories, and 10,000 marriages, Mills & Boon know all about perfectly romantic moments and we want to encourage more of them - which is why we launched The Romantics Awards.

With hundreds of nominations for our awards and thousands of votes we are proud to reveal the most romantic things in the UK. Look at our directory to find the winners, finalists and runners-up in each of our 10 specially chosen categories.
