Anglophiles in the Isles: Part 6
If the love of all things British was dying down among Americans, Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle recently announcing their engagement likely reignited the affections of many people. And rightly so, Great Britain has given the world amazing literature, cultural phenomenons like the Harry Potter craze and every ’90s child’s obsession, the Spice Girls.
Its beautiful landscape, amazing food and interesting people make the island a perfect honeymoon destination. For a few months, we’ve been highlighting travel editor Becca Hensley’s picks on honeymoon destinations across Great Britain.
This week we’re headed to Wales to explore its Snowdonia National Park.
Wales’ Snowdonia National Park, rife with mystery, mountains and ancient standing stones, will take your breath away — and make you hungry. Nurture that inner gourmet at Michelin-starred Ynyshir, a hotel so food-centric, it touts itself as a restaurant with “rooms.” Stay for a few nights, set amid gardens, in this contemporary country house hotel. Here, Chef Gareth Ward will create a tasting menu designed just for you to celebrate the beginning of your new life together. Room to book? The Vermeer, where Richard Gere stayed during the filming of “First Knight.”
