Ready to pop the question? Or maybe you’ve started planning, but are still considering where? London is the perfect place to propose, and there are plenty of romantic places to do it. 

Of course, you want to make this life-changing moment extra special. Aside from the ring, photography, your outfit, and trying to keep it a surprise are all important, but the location is top of the list. 

Before choosing a location there are a number of factors to consider:

1) The weather
2) Secluded or crowded?
3) Day or night?
4) Do you want something else to make the moment extra special, like a musician or a photographer to capture the moment?

Once you’ve made up your mind about what type of proposal you want, choose a magical location from the list below.

Here are some of the top 5 Romantic Places To Propose In  London

On a river cruise

Sightseeing by the Thames River

Pop the question to your special someone on a London River Thames Dinner Cruise. Enjoy a wonderful 3 hour dinner cruise on the River Thames as you feast on a 4-course meal and take in the sights of the city. 

You’ll also have the opportunity to enjoy a live cabaret performance and dance after a beautiful proposal. Enjoy spectacular views of the 02 Arena, Canary Wharf, and London’s modern landmarks with your loved one in a romantic atmosphere. 

The Westminster to Greenwich River Thames Cruise has all the same sights, just without the dinner option, perfect for a sunny day and lower key proposal when you have a romantic dinner planned afterwards. 

London Eye

The London Eye

Book a romantic trip on the London Eye, and get a “YES” at one of the world’s tallest observation wheels. Enjoy the views of London’s iconic skyline and the glittering river below as you slowly turn, high in the sky. This is a wonderful way to show that special someone the romantic views of London. You might have a small audience, as London Eye’s observation pods are shared with others, but there is always the option to splash out on a private pod for 2, complete with champagne. 

Tower Bridge

The Tower Bridge

Want a fairytale location? Hold your partner’s hand and take a romantic stroll along the pretty banks of the River Thames. Stop to ask that all-important question beside one of the most iconic sights in the city, Tower Bridge. Often mistaken for the less interesting London Bridge, Tower Bridge boasts ornate blue details and a mechanism that lifts in the middle as tall boats come sailing down the river. 

You can either get on one knee on Tower Bridge, in its shadow by the river, or on the walkway above Tower Bridge. Not many people know about this spot, with a glass floor allowing you to take in views from 42 meters above the River Thames and a mirrored ceiling perfect for that post-proposal selfie. 

If you’re looking for somewhere quiet to propose, head to Tower Bridge in the morning. Or, if you decide to propose at night, you’re sure to receive lots of support from the many locals and tourists taking in the view. 

After proposing, you can explore inside Tower Bridge and maybe even get some inspiration for the ring from the enviable crown jewels collection inside the Tower of London

The Shard

View from The Shard

Get down on one knee in the UK’s tallest building. The views of London from the Shard’s 72nd floor observation deck are like no other, whether you visit at night or during the day (hint: sunset has romance in spades). Find the perfect moment as you watch boats cruise along the Thames and the city buzz below you, and celebrate with some champagne at the on-hand bar. You could also consider booking one of the Shard’s 6 restaurants, requesting a window seat for a quiet and picturesque proposal, or for a romantic meal afterwards. 

Up at The O2

Up at The O2

They say love is a great adventure. Plan a proposal to match and pop the question as you climb the roof of the O2 Arena. It’s a story you won’t forget – getting engaged while hooked to your partner as you overlook spectacular London and the sparkling River Thames below.
