The most popular and beautiful hotspots to propose in the UK
New research by London cornerstone jewellery brand, ABELINI, has revealed that even a global pandemic can't stop romantics tying the knot, as it is revealed that 79% of Brits would be happy to get engaged in the UK.
If you're reading this after having a festive proposal at the end of 2021 - did your very own engagement location make one of the top listed? Whether your loved one is an ocean-obsessed water sign or a glamorous city slicker who would love to be proposed to with views over the capital, here at County Wedding Magazines HQ we're loving these winners.
The London Eye, London
This iconic London tourist hotspot offers panoramic views of central London and beyond, providing a glamorous setting for a proposal. If the view alone doesn't wow your loved one, suitors can go the extra mile by hiring a private pod or request a bottle of champagne to toast your engagement after you get down on one knee.
St Michael's Mount, Cornwall
Inhabited for over 10,000 years, this fairy tale island off the coast of Cornwall offers scenic views of Penzance and crystal clear waters of the Cornish coat. You can access the island by a cause way which disappears on high-tide, so make sure to time your proposal well. As the tide comes in the island is only accessible by boat, giving it the feel of a fantasy land from a story book.
Derwentwater, The Lake District
Want your proposal to be a private affair? Getting lost in beautiful Derwentwater in the Lake District is the ideal solution for those who don't want an audience when they propose. With miles and miles of rolling countryside consisting of incredible views, you and your finance-to-be will feel like you are the only two love birds in the world.
Edinburgh Castle, Scotland
If you're planning a grand proposal full of history and beauty, then look no further than Edinburgh Castle, situated on Castel Rock. Set in the heart of Scotland's dynamic capital city, you're finance-to-be won't be disappointed with the beauty this historic site has to offer. Why not tie it in with a sunrise or sunset to make it even more special?
