Today I am going to tell you why you should propose in London. Hint. Because it’ll be memorable! But, if you need convincing, here are some of the reasons why proposing in London is a great idea!
Amazing Places to Propose in London for Every Preference
London is a vibrant city – in fact, here’s what happens in London every minute. If you’ve ever read an insider’s guide to London – with the best attractions in London and off the beaten path things to see and do – you already know that there are many tourist attractions as well as quirky and fun things to do in London.
It’s a big city, associated already with royal weddings and romantic love stories, and let’s not forget about Shakespeare or Keats. There are amazing places to propose in London for every preference:
- London Eye;
- Planetarium, Royal Observer;
- Queen Mary’s Rose Garden;
- The Shard;
- Tower Bridge;
- Dinner Cruise;
- Primrose Hill;
- St. Paul’s Cathedral Whispering Gallery;
- Helicopter Tour of London;
- Kew Gardens.
With over 9,000 marriage proposals done already, London Eye is the most popular spot to propose in London. You’ll make a great ferris wheel ride become a memorable experience if you propose atop the London Eye. You’ll both enjoy amazing views of the city – and then you’ll step into a new chapter into your lives!
Planetarium, Royal Observer
What more better way to suggest the beginning of an eternal love story than by proposing under the stars? Head to The Peter Harrison Planetarium at the The Royal Observatory in Greenwich, one of the best places to propose in London, and combine the beauty of the sky and stars with that of the nature – nearby park!
Queen Mary’s Rose Garden
If your loved one’s favourite flowers are the roses and if you plan on proposing in London in the first two weeks of June, then choosing Queen Mary’s Rose Garden for your marriage proposal is the logical choice (roses bloom until late autumn, so you’ll have other perfect occasions as well). Admire the roses, enjoy a nice walk, sit on a bench, and then pop the question.
One of the most romantic places in London (even if a more recent attraction), the Shard is a great place to ask your loved one to marry you. It’s the highest observation point in London and you have the best view of the city from here – you can see all of the famous attractions. Plus, there is a restaurant where you can enjoy a long dinner – maybe choose this moment to ask the big question.
There are some interesting facts about the Tower Bridge in London, UK you probably didn’t know, but I’m pretty sure you know exactly the bridge I’m referring to. Famous worldwide, beautiful and imposing during the day and at night, the Tower Bridge is popular and could also be the place where you can propose marriage.
If you like cruises, while not take one late in the evening. You’ll enjoy the cruise, the views, the sunset and you’ll have a great place to propose!
If you like picnics and you’d love to use one as a way to propose, then head to Primrose Hill. It’s a great place to go for a stroll that will leave behind the hustle and bustle of the big city! You’ll also get a good view of the London skyline from here and a good idea for an open-air marriage proposal.
St. Paul’s Cathedral Whispering Gallery
Old, iconic, famous, impressive. And it has a whispering gallery where you can pretend you want to test the acoustic and use this pretext to pop the question. True, you’ll need to take the 259 steps up the staircase, and, in the gallery, you’ll need to ask your partner to go to the other side of the room. And then whisper your question! And be prepared for a loud yes :))
Helicopter Tour of London
If you like to see the city from above, then take a helicopter tour of London and ask your partner to marry you when you are in the air above famous landmarks. Yes, it will be noisy, but it will be unforgettable!
One of the most famous places in London, the The Palm House at Kew Gardens is considered today one of the most important surviving Victorian glass structures. As the plants inside are can be visited all year long, you can choose to propose inside this structure, if you go here or winter, or outside, in the mesmerizing natural landscape surrounding it in other months. Maybe plan a visit with another couple here and ask them to stay behind, prepared to take some pictures to be able to look at them, years later, and remember this great moment!
The places listed above are only ten of the perfect ideas for proposing in London. But don’t get me wrong. It’s just a small selection of the numerous enchanting places to propose in London. In the end, your personal preferences will determine what you’ll choose. I just want to point, once again, that there are both famous and lesser known opportunities to propose in London!

One thought on “Why You Should Propose In London”
Great suggestions. The Shard, or near Tower Bridge or Westminster are particular beautiful spots. To make a proposal even more special it’s worth staying in the Shangri-La in the Shard. It’s an incredible hotel and would really top off the moment.
