What's your idea of a romantic stroll? Perhaps an amble along Roker Beach with your loved one tickles your fancy, or a bracing walk up to Penshaw Monument to take in the stunning skyline?

A UK charity wants to hear from you, as it launches a search for Britain's most romantic city walk ahead of Valentine’s Day.

Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking, is asking lovers to nominate their favourite romantic walks before the finalists are put to the public vote ahead of the big day on February 14.

The walk can be a trip down memory lane to loves past or present - and those entering the competition are being given the chance to share their reasons for their nominations.

It is hoped that the competition will inspire people to revisit their favourite city walks, and relive the memories too.

The winning entry will be featured on the Living Streets website as part of the drive to make Britain a walking nation.

Stuart Hay, Living Streets Director for Scotland, said: “This competition is open to all – whether you want to fly the flag for your own city, or chose another that has been the setting for a romantic break.

"We would like to know the story behind each nomination and will be holding an online vote to let the nation decide the winner.

“The competition is light-hearted but we want to get across the simple message that just going for a walk a few times a week is enough to help people enjoy noticeable mental and physical health benefits. Hopefully couples will be inspired to explore their city looking for the winning entry.”
