10 Mind-Blowing Venues To Propose In

You've bought the ring, you know what you're going to say, now it's time to find the perfect place to pop the question! But the spot you choose to propose in is absolutely critical - it's where you'll think back on for the rest of your married life, not to mention having the opinions (welcome or otherwise!) of everyone from the in-laws to your friends...

Here are 10 picture perfect places to create a memory of a lifetime. Plan a proposal they can't refuse!

1. Rooftop At The Trafalgar


A private bar overlooking Trafalgar Square, The Rooftop is the ideal space for a sophisticated and unforgettable proposal. Complete with cocktails and the perfect background view of London, this spot is ideal for celeb-worthy proposals - and the all important photos couldn't have a better backdrop!

2. Searcys at The Gherkin

Searcys at The Gherkin takes everything to the next level, and shouldn't that be how your proposal is? The venue's breathtaking panoramic view of London is enough to create unforgettable memories even if you don't have a special question to ask! You can even rent a private dining room for the special moment just between the two of you.

3. The Balcony Room at Shakespeare's Globe


'When Love speaks, the voice of all the gods
Makes heaven drowsy with the harmony.'

We don't know about you, but we think that all the world's a stage and you should make your proposal the most special Act of your life yet - and where better to do that than in the Bard's own backyard?

4. Purl
