A Unique Engagement in London

Up, up and away…

National TheatreNothing could be more atmospheric as using the backdrop of London’s iconic skyline as the setting for a proposal, whether it be looking out from the walkway of Tower Bridge, down the length and breadth of the Thames, to observing the twinkling lights of the capital at night from the London Eye or the breathtaking dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral and the spire of Wren’s St. Brides from the National Theatre’s rooftop venue, The Deck. For an alternative, but equally special view, Wellington Arch, on Hyde Park Corner offers inspiring vistas across lush parkland to the north and Buckingham Palace to the south.

I swear by the moon and the stars in the sky…

While heading into the outer limits of the atmosphere to propose to your partner might seem a bit far-fetched, if not impossible for most, the Royal Observatory Greenwich offers an impressive alternative! The Peter Harrison Planetarium used the most advanced digital projections to take you on a journey through our cosmos and beyond, giving you the opportunity to get down on one knee as planets and stars circle above. If you’re looking for something really different then how about proposing in the company of Posh & Becks, Wills & Kate and even James Bond at Madame Tussauds?

Pop the question amongst the palm treesLondon Eye

It is said that London has more green space than any other city in the world, and what could be more romantic than taking a walk through some of the capital’s prettiest gardens en route to your proposal. The tranquility the Royal Hospital Chelsea’s grounds and Chelsea Physic Gardens, nestled amongst the hubbub of Chelsea Embankment, offer gentle, flower-filled settings whereas the steamy glasshouses of Kew Gardens give an elegant exoticism to a proposal amongst the palms. For traditionalists, the stunning, Capability Brown parklands of Syon Park and Georgian Manor house will bring to mind all the Regency Romance of a Jane Austen novel.

Harness the historical…

LeightonPomp and grandeur can be found aplenty across the capital and, if you are looking for something suitably lavish for that once in a lifetime experience, then London certainly does not disappoint. From the Tudor majesty of Middle Temple and Hampton Court Palace (with its renowned hedge maze) to the Victorian opulence of Leighton House and the Baroque splendor of Christ Church Spitalfields, the capital is a veritable resource of unique, heritage locations in which to ensure that the answer is almost always yes!
