Planning a proposal in London

London is the capital of England and an iconic city in Europe with a distinct cosmopolitan vibe; however, there are also many romantic landmarks and peaceful places in London that would be perfect if you are thinking of popping the question whilst on your vacation to the UK. Read on for our top tips to proposing in London.

Iconic landmarks
If your dream is to propose in front of, or even inside, one of London’s iconic landmarks then you surely can’t beat the magnificence of The Shard, which is a skyscraper in Southwark. It is epic and is home to some of London’s finest restaurants and hotel rooms.

For something a little closer to ground level that still offers stunning city views, choose London Bridge. At night the bridge is illuminated with pretty lights, making it a romantic and memorable proposal location.

Another London landmark that is particularly pretty at night is the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, where you’ll be rewarded with views across Greenwich Park lit by the amber glow of the observatory.

Places with memorable views
One of the first places that comes to mind when planning a proposal in London is the London Eye, which is the magnificent rotating Ferris wheel that overlooks the River Thames close to Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. It offers stunning views out over the city and is particularly romantic in the evening or at sunset. However, it’s the first place that comes to a lot of people’s minds and so is not the most original choice. If clichés are not your thing, then you may be interested in one of the following.

If you want a private place to propose that offers possibly the best view in town, then check in to the Royal Suite at Grange St Pauls Hotel – the suite is located on the 7th floor and is a luxurious penthouse-style space with a private balcony that overlooks St Paul’s Cathedral.

For something less, ermm, bankrupting, take to one of the park benches dotted along the River Thames in Victoria Tower Gardens, which is one of the Royal Parks. It sits at the heart of Westminster and so still offers impressive views and is arguably one of the most romantic spots in London.

For the nature lovers
If a peaceful oasis appeals for your wedding proposal in London, then look in to The LookOut at Hyde Park, which is an eco-friendly lodge set against a beautiful green backdrop. It is available for private hire, allowing you to enjoy privacy during your proposal. However, it can also accommodate up to 300 guests, meaning you could also arrange for your family and friends to share in your special moment.

In front of an exquisite waterfall would surely top the list of romantic wedding proposals in London and the Kyoto Japanese Garden has one of the most picturesque waterfalls set against rolling green grass and delicate woodland trees. This haven of tranquility can be found in Holland Park.

Perhaps you would like to pop the question during a romantic picnic in one of London’s parks. If so, Brockwell Park in south London will be sure to delight. It is much quieter than some other London parks and features ornamental ponds, manicured flower beds, a herbaceous flower garden and a charming clock tower.

If you don’t mind an audience
If you’re a little more theatrical then you could choose to propose on stage at one of London’s atmospheric theaters. The Hackney Empire is a Victorian–Edwardian theater that is particularly impressive and will set the scene perfectly for your wedding proposal! Alternatively, you could choose The Globe theater, where many of Shakespeare’s plays were performed.

If you’re thinking bigger, then what about Wembley, which is a famous stadium in London. It has a big screen and you can also arrange fireworks and an orchestra!
