Breathtaking scenery along the Cat and Fiddle road, which stretches from Buxton to Macclesfield, have made it a popular choice.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner and more than half (63%) of 24-34 year olds leaning towards at least one holiday in England rather than abroad, EnjoyTravel drew up the list of romantic routes to travel in the UK.

The Cat and Fiddle ranks at number three, pipped by North Coast 500 in Scotland in the runner-up spot and Copse Hill Road, Lower Slaughter in the Cotswolds at number one.

Each drive was ranked on its romantic road trip factor, which includes natural scenery, unique things to do along the way, jaw-dropping viewpoints and overall popularity on social media.

The third most romantic road in Derbyshire is named after the Cat and Fiddle public house, the second highest in Britain. Wonderful views across the Peak District as well as its many bends and sharp turns make the road an exciting drive.
