50 and Romantic

Older couples are proving more romantic than those in their 20s with new figures showing that three out of four are planning four or more city breaks together this year.

A study by hotel chain Holiday Inn found that the over 50s are increasingly spending time away from home with their partners.

Spokesperson for the firm Chris Hale said: "By 50, most people have paid off their mortgage, their kids have left home and all of a sudden they have enormous freedoms they haven't enjoyed for years.

''While people in their 30s and 40s are tied down with debts and family life, the over-50s are packing their bags and heading off for romantic weekends, with great big grins on their faces."
