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.
