A proposal is likely to be one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make, so it’s no surprise that you feel the pressure! But planning how to go about it needn’t be stressful. It’s difficult to choose with so many amazing locations out there, but there’s no right or wrong answer. Every proposal is different, and that’s why it’s important to personalise it and make it your own. Here are some of the very best options the capital has to offer.
- Covent Garden
It’s a classic location for popping the question. With gorgeous architecture and a large open square, there is plenty of room to have your own space, whilst also garnering the cheers of crowds hanging from balcony bars and gathered around the street performers. If you fancy creating a real spectacle, how about setting up your very own flash mob in Covent Garden? If your friendship group doesn’t consist of theatrical dancers, it needn’t be out of your reach. There are proposal packages in London which provide you with all the dancers and choreography your heart could desire.
- Tower Bridge
For the history buffs among us, Tower Bridge is a great backdrop for your proposal. It a striking photo opportunity and a stunning backdrop for your big day. Whether you opt for a natural daytime proposal, or choose to close of the walkway for a private event, this location is practically made for it. You can have the walkway lit up with coloured LEDs or even bring a group of musicians along to make it extra special.
- The Eye
There’s no better place to propose than 400 feet up in the air, which is what makes the London Eye a perfect location to say those four magic words. With stunning panoramic views over the city and your own private pod, you can feel miles away from it all. It helps that it takes a full half an hour to do the full turn – it would be too awkward to say no, right?!
- Hampstead Heath
If you really want to get away from the big city lights, Hampstead Heath is your place. With breath-taking views of the London skyline and beautiful rural walks, it provides a fabulous compromise between city and countryside. Why not take a champagne picnic and make a real day of it.
- Notting Hill
Made iconic by Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts’ performances in the movie of the same name, the words ‘Notting Hill’ ooze with romanticism. Yes, it has its rougher parts, but there are still secrets to be discovered if you know where to look.With gardens nestled away and basement cocktail bars serving the best drinks in London, you can really celebrate in style.
If you’re planning for your big proposal, London truly does have some of the best locations on offer. With a mix of old and new, tradition and modernity, it is the perfect place to pop the age old question with a contemporary twist.
