Located in Stourhead, a 2,650 acre estate in Wiltshire, England, the classical Temple of Apollo overlooks the 18th century landscape garden and is the perfect choice for a romantic day-out. With its graceful stonework and unparalleled views, it was once described as « one of the most picturesque scenes in the world ». 

Fans of the film Pride and Prejudice will recognise this place as the set for the most famous and romantic scene of the movie where Mr Darcy declared his love to Elizabeth. Even if you haven’t seen the film, Stourhead remains stunning, with grottoes, gardens, bridges and secluded spots.
