Where to propose in Glasgow?
Glasgow has lots to offer for when you’re planning on proposing. It’s a city rich in history and is considered a bustling hub of culture, shopping, and dining with the perfect mix of historical landmarks and high-end restaurants to visit.
It boasts some incredible architecture and outdoor spaces - ideal for getting down on one knee. Here are our top 3 spots for proposing in Glasgow.
1. The Botanical Gardens
For those who love to surround themselves with plants, nature, and history. The Glasgow Botanical Gardens are a fantastic place to propose. Founded in 1817, the gardens can be found alongside the River Kelvin and boast over 20 hectares of immaculately manicured gardens as well as two greenhouses playing host to hundreds of specimens of plants.
Take a walk through the stunning gardens and enjoy seeing all kinds of exotic species of flora before getting down on one knee and proposing to your love. No matter where you do it, the photos will be beautiful.
2. Mitchell Library
Perfect for book lovers, proposing in a library is a really romantic gesture. The Mitchell Library is one of Europe's largest public libraries with over one million different books, papers, and research materials, and welcomes over 500,000 visitors every year.
Get down on one knee in front of the shelves of their favourite genre, or profess your love in one of the grand reading rooms. Just make sure you keep your celebration subtle until you leave - it is a library after all.
3. Ashton Lane
The cosy cobbled street of Ashton Lane in the west end feels like stepping into another world. With its ceiling of twinkling fairy lights it gives off an air of magic and intimacy despite being a public street. This area makes for an excellent Instagram spot and is the perfect place to propose. After they say “yes”, you can celebrate in one of the many bars and restaurants lining the street!
Is it safe to travel on the trains with an expensive jewellery item?
Although Glasgow is considered an extremely safe city, filled with Scottish charm, if you have an expensive item with you, it’s best to be discreet. If you feel uncertain of how safe your purchase is, store your Austen & Blake bag inside a backpack or other, opaque bag to keep your valuables as safe as possible.
