17 Of The Most Magical Places To Propose In London

‘Tis better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all… Maybe it’s time to take off your unemotional London hat and get down on one knee. Here’s where we’d do it…


1. Make it a wet one at the London Aquarium

The perfect way to reel in… the catch of your life… #foundmynemo


2. Make it cute not creepy at the Whispering Gallery in St Paul’s Cathedral

Arrange to meet at the top of the 259 steps and let your whispered question sneak up on her from the other side of the Dome… 


3. Live out bae’s fantasy at Kensington Olympia

Be as cute as Matt and propose at an exhibition that you know your other half will love…


4. Break the rules at the British Library

Hide a ring in that book that you know she’ll pick off the shelf. No talking means she may not say yes but she can’t say no either…


5. You know where to hide the ring at the Dominic Ansel Bakery and their blooming marvellous blooming hot chocolate


6. Make things awkward on the Tube

She might tell you she hates public displays of affection and any sort of tube related activities, but don’t listen to her. She will love it… and the presence of a disapproving tube carriage means it would be too awkward to refuse. 


7. Make it magical at Orchid Lates in the Conservatory at Kew

Every Tuesday and Thursday, throughout the Orchids Festival, you can propose au natural amongst the flora and fauna of Kew as well as Indian music, Bodhi leaf and mandala colouring, henna, yoga and more…


8. Or head to one of the floral swing pop-ups in Covent Garden


9. Or pop the question under sunrise or sunset at a 24 hour eatery like Duck and Waffle



10. Escape from the madness and do it in the middle of the Greenwich Foot Tunnel

Open 24 hours for extra romantic effect… and can walk in opposite directions if it doesn’t go as planned…


11. Or race to the centre of Hampton Court maze to await your partner on bended knee

12. Do it breathless at the finish line of the London Marathon

If you can get through 26 miles you can get through anything.


13. Let’s all just remember this magical moment


14. And this one


15. Be the knight to her tale at a Medieval Banquet

Be the Shrek to your Fiona…


16. Go green and stand under the Bandstand at the Horniman Museum

Make sure the forecast is rain to do it like Darcy.


17. Pop the question before pushing her down the world’s highest and longest tunnel slide
